An Agile and Responsive Workforce for the Future
The 2021 Integrated Review set out a vision in which our future Armed Forces will be more persistently engaged worldwide. This will require full-spectrum and high-tech capabilities, integrated across multiple military requirements and organisational boundaries. This will require DE&S to do different things and equip our workforce with new skills.
In his keynote address, Sir Simon will focus on DE&S’ people and how the recently launched Strategy – DE&S 2025 – seeks to tackle these challenges whilst building on significant recent successes and learning from experience. The address will cover several topics including: diversity, and how it delivers for DE&S’ people and its customers; workforce planning and identifying traditional and emerging skills required to meet the greater pace and agility required by Defence; and DE&S’ innovative approach to the jobs market, including what the business can offer to apprentices and graduates.
