The MiFriendy Cities Programme supports skilled refugees and migrants to find employment opportunities across Coventry and Warwickshire. Employers often overlook the possibility of recruiting skilled refugees and migrants due to misconceptions around their ‘Right to Work’ status. This untapped talent pipeline may offer solutions for employers looking to fill long-term skills gaps and this informative workshop will offer information and guidance around this, including current legislation.
At this event, an overview of the MiFriendly Cities Programme will be provided, focusing on the support options available for employers to enable them to fill vacancies and skills gaps from the MiFriendly Cities Programme's pool of skilled participants.
The event is aimed at all businesses across Coventry and Warwickshire from SMEs to National/International businesses, who have a presence in the region. Senior HR/Recruitment Professionals would benefit from attendance.
Attendees will gain the latest information on 'Right to Work' legislation and a demo of the 'RightCheck' App, also how the MiFriendly Cities programme can become a free recruitment channel.
