On the 17th May 2017, the hugely successful ‘Conversation’ In-house Recruitment Conference visited the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham City Centre.

  • Effectively Meeting the Demands of Volume Recruitment
  • Reimagining our candidate journey end to end
  • Market Trends – What the job market looks like in 2017
  • Relationship building with your Hiring Managers
  • Using Assessment Tools to Transform Your Recruitment Delivery
  • Preparing for a post-EU jobs market
  • Talent Pooling – Why Bother?
