Reports suggest that professionals aged between 18-35 have been the hardest hit by the repercussions of the Covid-19 lockdown. There is still a lot of uncertainty around what the 'new normal' will hold and many are left wondering 'what's next?'.

For this Generation Next session, we will be hearing from the Chamber’s very own, Director of Policy and External Affairs, Chris Hobson, who will talk us through what the state of the economy and the road map to recovery currently looks like. Chris will also provide some insights into up-to-date schemes, including the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’.

Benefits of attending

Covid-19 has shaken up many young professionals' career plans, whether you are a recent graduate, have recently been made redundant or were planning on moving job sector, this session will be an excellent opportunity to gain a rounded understanding of how you can ride the wave of recovery as we head into the 'new normal'.

Particularly, if you are feeling anxious about the changes to the business sector due to Covid-19, this event will offer more clarity on the reality of the situation. If you also line-manage or run a business, we will also be offering information on Government schemes and furlough updates, as well as the state of the economy.
