Speaking up for enterprise to the Shadow Chancellor

Tortoise Media continue to host absolutely incredible events. The events that they put together are worth far more than their subscription fee, and they have a free trial, student options and more!

I got the chance to speak to Anneliese Dodds and put forward the case for a more compassionate and supportive employment system.

My experience, and the experience of most people that I have discussed it with, is that the Job Centre is not fit for purpose. Endless CVs are sent out to huge companies that receive thousands.

For those who have fallen out of safe, secure and rewarding employment, our system must focus on skill development, emotional resilience and creating projects that demonstate expertise. This cannot be done by disinterested Job Centre employees on low wages, targetted to hit high numbers of sanctions.

Like all our solutions, we believe this education needs to start in schools. Check out our “Study, Succeed, Share” workshop page and blog for more information.

Our voice is growing, and change is inevitable.

Here’s the video of the conference, my question starts at 35:00
