Rebuilding the Workforce webinar

On Thursday, March 11th, we hosted the second of our HE Recruitment 2021 webinar series, Rebuilding the Workforce.

Watch the webinar now and hear from the following participants:


People Consulting

Graeme Hunter leads EY’s People Consulting business for education, policing and local government and our Organisation Design Community of Practice.

He is passionate about using the power of EY and consulting to improve how organisations recruit, lead and manage their people, and has twenty years’ experience in lead clients and their people through complex change, redesigning their organisations to deliver their purpose and strategy.

He is currently helping police clients to create new partnerships with higher education, to transform how they recruit and develop new officers. He lives in Northumberland and looks forward to a time when he can meet people face to face again!

Changes in the nature of work, and the impact of Covid-19, have put higher education under pressure. Looking to the future, this session will look at the key things HEs will need to consider in rebuilding the workforce. How could you better balance demand for capabilities with supply of talent? How could you plan for a future where the nature of work is changing – not just its location? And what could this mean for how HR operates in the future?
