The PPMA is looking for HR stars of the future

The PPMA is looking for HR stars of the future to take to the stage and showcase their ideas at the Annual PPMA Seminar in 2013

To be in with a chance of winning we would like you to capture your ideas (and practical suggestions for implementation) in fewer than 2,500 words on:

UK unemployment is a constant challenge as our population ages, yet younger generations lack the skills, experience and mind set to replace workers who are ready to retire.

What is your big idea to make sure Public Sector employers have the right approach to the talent challenge facing the sector?

You don’t need to work in Local Government to enter, nor do you need to be a member of the PPMA. If you work in HR in the Public Sector and have some great ideas to share this is your opportunity to shine.

All entrants will be invited to the University of Warwick for two days of personal coaching, communication and media skills workshops plus plenty of time to get to know your fellow HR Professionals. You will also have the opportunity to present your project to our panel of judges. The three individuals with the highest scores will then be invited to present at the Annual PPMA Seminar in 2013.

The PPMA is committed to nurturing, encouraging and supporting emerging new HR talent and it is our aim that this event will become a recognised showcase for innovation.

We look forward to receiving your application and welcoming you to Warwick in February 2013 to participate in what we anticipate to be a career defining experience for all involved.

Date: Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th February 2013.

Time: Two days with overnight accommodation on Monday 11 February 2013.

Venue: University of Warwick.

Cost: The event is free to PPMA members and 149.00 plus VAT to non-members which includes 12 month’s membership of the PPMA for 2013/2014.
