March Members Event (sponsored by Inspira)

Our next Members’ Event takes place on Tuesday 15 March at Roundthorn Country House Hotel in Penrith.

Join us in person, or remotely, alongside a range of expert speakers as we explore the next steps in delivering a skilled workforce for Cumbria in 2022 – and beyond.

You will hear about the national approach to meeting workforce needs from guest speaker David Sheen, who is Public Affairs Director at UK Hospitality and a member of the Hospitality & Skills Board.

Alongside David will be CT’s Rachel Tyson, sharing the latest headlines from our in-depth skills audit of Cumbria’s tourism sector and outlining the next steps in our recruitment marketing campaign.

Our MD Gill Haigh will also be giving an overview of key activity, including more on our marketing campaign work and business support, a new sustainability toolkit for businesses and the upcoming Cumbria Tourism Awards.

Angela Barnes from Napthens Solicitors will be taking a look at securing sponsored status for international workers. Meanwhile, People Director at the Westmorland Family, Alex Sharp-Walker, will bring a business perspective to developing a skilled workforce, and Chris Gibson from Inspira will talk about the support available to employers.

There will also be plenty of time to ask questions with a Q&A Panel, including time for face-to-face networking both before the meeting and over lunch.
