A One Day Open Workshop Broadway House, London, Wednesday 5th June 2013

Engaging effectively with employers is a critical element of most employment and skills programmes. Whether it be targeting job outcomes for the unemployed, or generating apprenticeship vacancies, the commitment and participation of employers is essential.

But in a tough economy, and with increasing competition, creating and maintaining effective employer relationships can be a challenge. This workshop from Carley Consult, aims to help demystify this challenge, sharing hints, techniques and best practice for building performance orientated employer relationships.

The workshop content has been informed and shaped through Carley Consult’s history of working with a diverse base of employment, skills, and FE providers. In addition to open courses, we have successfully delivered this particular workshop on an-house basis for providers such as Employment Enterprise (Glasgow), Ellingham Employment Services (London), and Bristol City Council.

The workshop itself is delivered by Jim Carley FIEP, Managing Director of Carley Consult, who has 15 years of sector experience.
