#IHTechTalent 2018: What to Expect and Why You Can’t Afford to Miss It

With the countdown to the 2018 Tech Talent In-house Recruitment fast approaching, we are shaping up for another fantastic day packed full of insights and innovation. After a sold-out debut last year, we’re proud to return on 11th October with a powerful line-up of speakers, bringing you content that will complement last year’s key learnings.

If last year our focus was to set the scene for the UK’s tech recruitment landscape, this year we will carry on the conversations in more detail, looking at case studies that guarantee to help you hit the ground running. Here are some of the topics of discussion you can expect to take part in at this year’s Tech Talent Conference and why you can’t afford to miss out on the action.

1. Real-life examples of Diversity & Inclusion Recruitment

What we learned last year: The shortage of female tech talent and the prevalence of discrimination against those working in the industry is a serious issue that needs addressing.

What’s on this year: Jenna Prescott, Recruitment Manager at Expedia, will join us to talk about how putting Diversity & Inclusion at the heart of your talent planning can help you overcome unconscious bias and maintain a competitive advantage.

Jeffrey Lovejoy and Katherine Brewster from FDM Group will also be there to talk about the importance of soft skills and training programmes when hiring women in tech.

2. Educating the Next Generation of Tech Talent

What we learned last year: 62% of UK business executives say that their tech talent pool doesn’t have the capability they need to deliver their digital strategy. Without the younger generation harnessing the interest and skills of tech, how would we aim to eventually bridge the skills gap?

What’s on this year: Sophie Theen, Head of HR & Talent at 11:FS, will join us to share her tried and tested strategies to overcome the tech skills gap and drive change for our future generation.

3. Speed and Efficiency in Tech Hiring

What we learned last year: In a highly competitive market, speed is crucial for an effective hiring as the top 10% of candidates exit the market within 10 days.

What’s on this year: Stephen Morrison, Talent Acquisition Manager at Nutmeg, will join us to share top lessons from his recent hiring campaign which saw him build a tech team in just 3 hours!

4. Nurturing Skeptical Techies

What we learned last year: 19% of applicant drop-outs are caused by a bad recruitment experience. We must think of candidates as buyers of our job opportunities and offer them a completely personalised journey, to cater to their specific needs and expectations from the role.

What’s on this year: Candidate.ID return this year to look at ways to successfully pipeline sceptical tech talent. Billy McDiarmid, Head of Client Success, will explore the content and approaches that will make candidates fall in love with your employer brand.

Plus, not to mention all the networking opportunities with like-minded peers and cutting-edge tech vendors that come as part and parcel of every event that we put on. This year, it’s set to be another sell out, so if you haven’t got your ticket, don’t miss out, book today and join us for a fun and insight-packed day!
