The Changing Nature of Work and Leadership for Today’s Career Starters

Mark Fawcett, Radley parent and Founder of We Are Futures, advises leading businesses on how to better connect with young people, whether as customers or future colleagues. On Thursday he led a fascinating discussion about how employers are evolving the way they hire and operate in response to the changing demands of business and young career starters. These changes have influenced the types of skills that young people need to build, and also dictate what it takes to stand out in a crowd of applicants. The talk was a brilliant insight into the future of the world of work.

Over 50 members of the Radley community joined online for the talk, and many challenging questions were posed to our expert speaker. Questions were fielded by 6.2, Jack (A Social), who interviewed Mark after the talk.

The talk is available to watch on YouTube as part of the Radleian Society’s Beyond Radley playlist.
