Employment Cafe to Present at City Hall Mobile Seminar Entitled “Mobile Technology: Improving Public Services”

Employment Cafe, the employment and job-matching service based in Brixton, London is to present at City Hall mobile seminar entitled “Mobile Technology: Improving public services”.

The Greater London Authority (GLA), in association with T-Mobile and London Connects, will be hosting a wide-ranging seminar entitled 'Mobile Technology: Improving public services' from 16:30 on Tuesday 10 February in City Hall, London.

Ros Griffiths, Founder and Managing Director of Employment Cafe, will be presenting the Employment Cafe case study, addressing the theme “Technology innovation driving efficiency and diversity in recruitment.”

The seminar focuses upon how mobile technology plays an essential part in the lives of many individuals and businesses and, as the technology advances, is set to play a central role in improving the quality and efficiency of public services.

The event presents an excellent opportunity to hear five organisations that have already successfully employed mobile technology to increase the scope of their work within the public sector. The panellists will demonstrate how their first-hand experience has helped them with the practical application of mobile technology.

Val Shawcross, London’s E-Envoy, Greater London Authority Assembly Member will open the seminar which is to be introduced and chaired by John Boyle, Director of Network Build at T-Mobile.

The one and a half hour seminar will include presentations and a panel session, offering attendees the chance to question those already using this technology in innovative ways.

“We are extremely pleased to be attending and presenting how Employment Cafe is leading within public and private sector spaces in helping its community with the use of its service and mobile technology. We are looking forward to demonstrate how the Employment Cafe service is connecting individuals to employment and wider opportunities using mobile technology, which is more readily available and accessible to them”, Ros Griffiths, Founder and Managing Director of Employment Cafe concludes.
