Open Minds Talent Match Breakfast Event

 Registration is closed for this event
Many local businesses report recruitment challenges - but our region continues to have high unemployment amongst young people. How can that be?

Join us at this special free breakfast event, when we will hear from those at the sharp end: young people who have overcome difficulties to get a job; businesses that have supported them – and those who recognise the challenges that can sometimes prevent young people from getting into sustainable employment. Practical lessons learned from the five-year Birmingham and Solihull Talent Match programme will help illuminate the issues.

West Midlands Mayor Andy Street will speak to the issues and possible solutions whilst employers will also be asked to consider further ‘opening their minds’ – to recognise and appreciate the opportunities of employing young people regardless of their personal barriers.

A ‘Question Time’-style discussion will be hosted by Editor-in-chief of Reach plc in the Midlands, Marc Reeves.

If you’re still concerned about the future for our school leavers and young people, this event will provide an opportunity to learn, discuss - and open minds.


22nd March, 2019 7:30 AM   through   10:30 AM
