Attract talent through new Chamber ‘Graduate Hub’

10 Oct 2016


Are you interested in recruiting some bright new talent into your business – with lots of help from the Chamber and a 50% wage subsidy?

On October 31st we are launching our new ‘Graduate Hub’ – helping to match local graduates with local businesses. Here’s how it works:

  • The graduate spends 4 weeks full-time at the Chamber undertaking initial training to fill gaps in their knowledge.
  • You meet them during week 3 at our ‘Meet the Graduate’ Event where we help to ensure a good match.
  • They spend one week unpaid doing a work trial at your business – just to make sure the match is right.
  • They then spend 6 months working in your business whilst employed by the Chamber – we deal with payroll, HR issues etc.
  • The Chamber will invoice you monthly for 50% of their wages, so you pay approximately £500 per month.
