As a local employer, as well as growing your business, you have an important role in supporting the local community and economy. There are numerous ways of offering that support including apprenticeships, internships, work placements, work-shadowing and mentoring.
Not only do these help local people improve their skills and knowledge, and make informed career choices, they also benefit you as an employer. They can bring new talent, skills and perspectives into your organisation, offer supervisory opportunities for staff as well as enhance your reputation locally.
In this fast-moving world, it’s also important to keep abreast of new business initiatives locally and nationally, and changes in the local labour market so you can plan for the future, and to be able to find advice from trusted organisations on everything from finances to recruitment and training.
