Powered By Talent Lite: Talent Attraction
Powered By Talent is Northern Ireland’s only conference series dedicated to a business’s most important asset, its people. In advance of the main conference on May 22nd 2019, we are proud to present three supporting seminars on ‘Talent Attraction’, ‘Talent Retention’ and ‘Talent Development’.
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

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.
