Scale-Up Roundtable: Recruitment

Scale-Up Roundtable: Recruitment

Currently, 45% of employers state they have hard-to-fill vacancies1 and with the number of positions available growing daily, it’s a challenging time for businesses to be hiring.

For the latest in our series of Scale-Up roundtables, we’ll dive into the world of recruitment, exploring common challenges, key strategies to help you attract talent in a competitive market – and why 2022 is proving to be candidate’s market.

We’ll also highlight alternative opportunities to find new talent, from traditional recruitment through to agencies and company listings, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, and fully-funded project placements such as SETsquared’s IKEEP programme.

Join us for the morning in Bath to listen to the experts from Cognisess, Digital Futures and CRSI  discuss recruitment, skills and workplace inclusivity.

This roundtable is open for everyone to attend, and not exclusive to scale-up members.
