May 2022 Ambassadors Event

In association with Prologis we will meet at the beautiful Little Hay Golf Complex (Please note venue update) and following on from our event in March we will look at the key hurdle to business growth identified at that event – Employment.



Welcome to Little Hay

Being the “right” Employer

Roland Seddon  – Managing Director  – MRK Associates

Your people are the life blood of your business and, at a time when there are record numbers of permanent job vacancies in the UK and skill shortages being seen in every industry, competition for recruiting talented staff has never been more intense. We will be discussing how to maximise your chances of finding good people and how important your employer brand and profile is when recruiting for your business.  Is your company really portraying to prospective employees why you’re a good company to work for?

Gareth  Styles – Head of School  – Foundation Studies  – West Herts College – Hiring from College

We look at the sorts of opportunities that would be appropriate for college leavers, and the benefits they can offer to employers.
