Welcome to Birmingham

Lots of people, especially graduates and young professionals, have joined organisations in Birmingham and the Colmore Business Improvement District over the last two years. Due to the impact of Covid-19, many of these joiners won’t have experienced the traditional onboarding process part of starting a new job, and as a result, are unlikely to be aware of Colmore BID, the District, the work it does in the area and the events and activities it hosts to support young professionals in their careers.

What’s On?

Welcome to Birmingham is a series of events aimed at professionals who have started to work in Birmingham in the last two years. The series of events will help explore how to get the most of Colmore BID and will consist of a week’s worth of programme activities.
