Description

Youth Employment: The path ahead for the Hunter

The next event in the HRF Centre's 30th anniversary Hunter Economic Breakfast Series will focus on youth employment and the path ahead for the Hunter.

Australia's future prosperity relies upon the full participation of young people in the economy, as creators, entrepreneurs and innovators. The most recent economic data show that the Hunter’s unemployment rate stands at 5.5%, while youth unemployment is almost double this rate at 10.9%.

So what does that mean for the Hunter economy and for local businesses, government and the community sector?

Join 270+ other guests on 4 August and be informed, challenged, inspired and connect.

Our keynote speaker will highlight seven new job clusters to help young people navigate the new work order, and discuss the urgent need to shift mindsets in our approach to jobs, careers and work.

A panel of experts will bring a Hunter perspective and respond to the keynote presentation. And the quarterly economic report on the region by the HRF Centre's lead economist will feature a special segment on youth employment.

Speakers:
Maggie Hill Foundation for Young Australians - The New Work Mindset
Anthea Bill, PhD HRF Centre - Hunter Economic Update and Youth Employment
Expert panel including Geoff Crews, Forsythes Recruitment

The latest edition of our Hunter Region Economic Indicators will also be available on the morning.

Thank you to our event partner: Dept. of Employment (Job Active) and Forsythes Recruitment
