The Recruitment in the Workplace Conference taking place online on the 25th April 2024.

Half of employers in the public sector are reporting hard-to-fill vacancies currently, according to a 2023 CIPD report. Strikes, labour shortages and the cost-of-living crisis have all contributed to this issue. Through sharing best practice on tackling these challenges and proven solutions, HR practitioners can work together to improve recruitment pathways.

There are some NHS GM – Adult Social Care Team part-funded places for this conference.
