Next week (Tuesday 25 January), Growth Works will host a panel discussion with recruitment experts and agencies from across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough in response to recruitment challenges forecasted for 2022 and beyond

According to research, published this month to mark the 20th anniversary of the Lloyds Bank Business Barometer, almost half (47%) of UK businesses said taking on new staff is their key ambition in the medium-term, citing recruiting staff as one of their top challenges.

Forecasts predict increasing attention on renewed employer branding, exploring how technology can enhance human interactions, and strengthening attention on practices that not only attract staff, but retain that talent in the company.

The panel will explore these themes and the concerns local businesses are experiencing with candidate shortages and its stifling of business growth; sharing insights and tactics to implement that could help businesses address these challenges head-on.

The panel consists of:

  • Andrew Moore, Partner at Bailey Fisher
  • David McGarry, Executive Director at EA First
  • Gareth Preece, Managing Director of Growth Works with Skills service
  • Marc Harrison, Account Director at Crooton Recruitment.

Growth Works is a strategic economic growth support programme launched by Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority and Business Board – supporting businesses across the region to accelerate their growth by planning bigger, scaling even faster and starting this month – paying it forward.

Registration to attend is free. All upcoming talks are available for registration on the Growth Works website:
