Flexible working recruitment events – wording to employers

Are you recruiting?

Do you offer flexible ways of working?

If you answered yes to both questions, then our Flexible Working Recruitment events may be of interest to you.

We’re looking for Cumbrian employers who are hiring and have flexible work options to attend our events and promote job vacancies.

By actively promoting and discussing more flexible ways of working, we may attract more people into the labour market.

Examples of flexible working include:

  • Reduced hours,
  • Flexible start and finish times,
  • Condensed hours over reduced days, such as a four-day week,
  • Flexible lunch

The format of the event days will be a market stall approach with different businesses holding their own stall.

The events will be supported by the Cumbria LEP, DWP and Centre for Leadership and Performance. If you would like to be part of one or more of our events, or wish to find out more, contact Rachel Wlodarczak, Head of Employment and Skills at The Cumbria LEP: rachel.wlodarczak@thecumbrialep.co.uk

The details of the events are shown below and the times will be confirmed nearer to the dates, however please plan for a full working day at this stage:

  • 19th September: The Forum, Barrow
  • 21st September: People First Conference Centre, Carlisle
  • 26th September: Kendal Town Hall, Kendal
