Engaging effectively with employers is a critical element of most employment and skills programmes.

But in a tough economy, and with increasing competition, creating and maintaining effective employer relationships can be a challenge.

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