17th May 2018
The Fable, London

Here’s a question for you - Do you feel that your careers website is inspiring people to apply for jobs at your company? If not, then you should join us for breakfast on May 17th.


Your career site is the central point that connects the world of talent with your business. It’s the beginning and the end for many jobs seekers, so making sure that you meet and go beyond expectations is critical in converting the best talent available on the market into legitimate candidates.


At this upcoming breakfast session, we’ll be sitting down and discussing:

  • What job seekers are looking for

  • How businesses have met these expectations in the past

  • The role that social media can play

  • Employee advocacy, brand activation and user-generated content

  • How you can benchmark your career website against your competitors
