Breaking down the barriers in recruitment for young people
The aims and objectives of the event 
Many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds face multiple barriers to employment. From having a disability to fulfilling caring responsibilities, the compounding effect of these barriers makes it even more difficult for these young people to find employment. However, by employing people who face these barriers, employers can tap into a hugely underutilised talent pool, which can help to address significant skills gaps. 
To tackle this issue, we would like to invite you to a practical workshop, focusing on how they can break down the barriers to recruitment for young people who face multiple barriers.  
Agenda/ outline of the event
  • Hear how other companies like DWF and Accenture have used alternative entry level application processes. 
  • Receive top tips on how they can implement these techniques in their own organisations. 
  • Collaborate with other delegates and take part in a group activity to create a more accessible recruitment process for young people who face multiple barriers. 
Light lunch and tea/coffee.
Open to all HR professionals/Early Careers/Talent Managers based in the North East area.
