Hiring Technical Talent

20th September 2017
Square Pig, London

As digital transformation continues to drive business change and the demand for tech talent constantly increases, we’re facing a unique candidate-driven marketplace.

At our past Reconverse event, Hiring Technical Talent, on the 20th of September we explored the fight to secure the best tech talent

James Clark, Talent & Resourcing Operations Manager at Argos joined us to talk about “Creating a tech hub to win the war for talent in a digital retail world”. 

This event covered

- How to create a great process for technical talent - Can a great experience beat bad one for more money?

- New ways to find talent. The good companies are getting better at finding new ways to source talent. Others are being left behind, still talking about "social" like a new species. Catching-up is not hard if you know where to look

- As the rest of the market looks to AI, is this an opportunity for technical hiring to become more humanized?

- Moving beyond Europe and looking at a wider global talent pool
