Employers in Greater Manchester have met at a workshop in order to

Colin Sinclair, chief executive of Midas, said: "The pilot provides
Manchester with a huge opportunity to shape our shared destiny and

A recent scheme subsidised by the Manchester Innovation Investment
Fund aimed to keep graduates of the city's universities by offering
PR work experience and a salary to ten successful candidates.
