How can Nottingham better attract and retain graduates, young people and skilled workers?
This was the main topic of a Nottingham Business School study and discussion event hosted by Nottingham Evening Post that brought together over 100 business leaders and city representatives.
The research revealed that it's the perception of Nottingham as a place for young professionals to live and work, rather than the actual offering and demand for highly-skilled workers, which presents a challenge.

Factors affecting the city's ability to retain graduates include SME's struggle to compete large organisations when recruiting and a limited offer of affordale housing for young professionals.
