Employers continue to report a shortfall in skilled labour, with  prosperity resting on having access to a skilled, productive workforce this continues to be a perennial barrier to growth - the annual Employability and Skills Summit will explore a range of solutions to support and improve your recruitment, retention and productivity challenges.

We are pleased to announce, for the second year, our headline sponsor:



Delivering against the Chamber goal to “Support the development of current and future workforce in the East Midlands” the 2020 Summit will show how the region can address the range of challenges business face and where we can ultimately create an environment where there is a bright future for our local economies, communities, young people and those furthest away from the job market.


On the day:

The Summit is aimed at business representatives - particularly those individuals responsible for the HR function within their organisation - business owners, representatives from the education sector, policy makers and business representation organisations.

Through a number of keynote presentations, panel discussions and workshops the Summit will explore the implications of the survey findings, focusing on two key themes: Bridging the Gap: Improving the link between education and employers and How do we deliver the workforce employers in the East Midlands demand.
