Unmasking Gendered Poverty Episode 3: Holly Chapman

In this episode, we are joined by Holly Chapman- Co-Founder and Director of Recruitment and Employer Branding at B-Radical.

In addition to her official role, Holly also helps to run the organisation’s sister charity, Radical Recruit which supports people furthest from the labour market into meaningful and sustainable income so that they can build better futures for themselves and their families.

As a single Mum to two boys and a young widow, having lost her husband to suicide in 2022, Holly uses her platform to speak about her own experiences and how organisations can build working environments that are more welcoming and accessible for those with parental and/or caring responsibilities, as well as the importance of compassionate and trauma-informed leadership.

Smallwood Trust has worked with Radical Recruit as a recruitment partner and in this episode, we discuss disadvantages women face in the labour market with Holly sharing her expertise from supporting women in recruitment.
