City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre, said: “These are uncertain times for people and it is critical that they get the right advice and support.

“These two digital events are aimed at colleagues and organisations working on the frontline with businesses and job seekers to ensure they have the best tools at their disposal to connect the two.

“Business Week provides a platform to highlight this critical work as we look to Relight Our City in its recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
