Attracting and retaining talent is one of the key challenges facing ambitious Scale Up's that want to grow. Learn how The Central Working Academy can help you meet these issues head on.

"80% of scaleups say that access to talent is vital or very important to their business continuing to grow, and 50% believe developing leadership and management skills is a top three-factor supporting growth"

- Scaleup Institute, Annual Scaleup Review 2018 

"Access to talent is the number one issue for founders in London, and the number two issue facing founders in both Cambridge and Manchester"
