Networking at receruiter events

Powered by Talent

Powered by Talent is a conference series based in Northern Ireland that cuts right to the centre of business… The people that make it happen. Powered by Talent Summit will take place in May 2019. In the meantime, the organisers will be running three warm-up events. Three seminars crammed with amazing speakers and powerful commentaries on the recruitment industry, in Ireland and worldwide.

The three events

  • Talent Attraction
  • Talent Retention
  • Talent Development

Powered by Talent: Attraction

The perfect storm of challenges currently exists for Northern Ireland businesses seeking to appoint fresh talent. Full employment is driving up salary costs and placing pressure on budgets. Brexit uncertainty is directly affecting the flow of migrant labour into Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, the stalemate at Stormont inhibits the ability of local businesses to have a voice on issues pertaining to skills and training.

There has never been a more critical time for local businesses to plan and execute strategies that result in the appointment of the most talented. In this seminar, we will focus on the main drivers of talent attraction, by attending you will learn:

  • How to source top talent via social media channels
  • How to generate responses from high-value, passive prospects, effectively
  • How to engage with your target audience in a meaningful way and create a talent pool
  • Which Apps you should use and why it is important to integrate them into your recruitment process
  • Which elements of your employer brand are most important to communicate to your audience

Who should attend?

Professionals in Human Resources, Operations and Management across a range of industries, who want to dramatically improve the quality and quantity of talent in their recruitment pipeline. In particular, those that want to recruit professionals in the following sectors: software, law, finance, compliance and other niche spaces.

Delivered through three 30 minute talks from our experts, and a 30-minute breakout session with our experts and local industry partners. This seminar will provide the advice, evidence and guidance you have been looking for. Attendance will make your talent attraction more successful.
