Jelf employment seminar — News from the frontline

The hugely successful Jelf Employment Seminars are back. Now in their sixth consecutive year, these fun and informative seminars are a must-attend event for many HR and finance professionals.

For this News from the frontline event we have scouted out three of the best speakers available.

Our frontline includes:

  • Lawyer Richard Port will be on hand to provide delegates with a useful update as to the key Employment Law changes facing employers at this time.
  • Lee Coles will explain why the new Pension Freedoms pose new challenges for UK employers, and outline how organisations can review and mitigate their exposure to such issues.
  • Steve Herbert will provide his (un)usual review of how the new government and summer Budget announcements will impact Employee Benefits, and what this will mean for employers of all sizes. And once again we also have a superb venue to stage our event. 

This time we are at the Imperial War Museum (North), which tells the stories of people’s experiences in modern war and conflict. Delegates will be able to view the museum galleries after the event, visit the Horrible Histories: Blitzed Brits exhibition, and climb the Air Shard for spectacular views of the surrounding area. The museum is easily accessible via public transport and free car parking for delegates is included.
