An event held at the Hull Truck theatre, bringing together the partners with local business from the Humber was seen as an outstanding success, with speakers from the local community, Channel 4 television, Youth Employment UK, and a panel of local businesses led by Alan Johnson MP.
The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership is supporting the #ThisAbility campaign in the Humber, a local campaign which is designed to improve employer confidence when supporting or considering recruiting disabled people. The Employment and Skills Team are investing in the disability agenda, as part of the Skills Pledge campaign. The Skills Pledge is signed by volunteer employers in the Humber to invest the future of all Humber residents, ensuring growth and a fully skilled workforce.
