Unlocking Hidden Talent
Promoting the benefits of hiring ex-offenders to employers is the hot topic for the Crosby Employment ‘Unlocking Hidden Talent’ event which takes place on Friday 18 March.
Supporting ex-offenders back into work is something the team at Crosby Employment is very passionate about, and the dedicated Empowering Team work with people to give them the skills, experience and confidence to get back into employment.
The event, which will be held at the Wortley Hotel in Scunthorpe between 10am and 12.30pm, will see a host of expert guest speakers who have experience in supporting ex-offenders. There will also be the chance to hear from businesses that hire ex-offenders to find out the benefits.
Working in partnership with NOVUS and the National Careers Service, Crosby Employment aims to make Unlocking Hidden Talent an interactive and informative day, and give a real insight into what an ex-offender can bring to businesses.
Hayley Cullen, Operations Manager for Crosby Employment, is coordinating the event. She said: “We’re really excited for the event, and can’t wait to showcase why ex-offenders should be given that second chance .
“We hope lots of local businesses will make the event, as not only will it be an informative day, but there will also be great networking opportunities with lots of large organisations from across the Lincolnshire and Humber region attending.
“We have guest speakers including Nic Dakin, Labour MP for Scunthorpe, and Ken Anderson, Divisional Head of EHS for power and gas at Siemens, who will be talking about hiring ex-offenders and why they’re supporters of local businesses doing this.”
