Recruitment and Resourcing Event – Friday 9th February

The next recruitment and resourcing event is on Friday 09 February and we will be hosting it at Sandwell Council House in the chamber – see further down for venue details. 

Though not quite Valentine’s day we will be delivering a thought provoking session on a topic close to all our working hearts right now – GDPR!

Our event is aimed at Talent Acquisition and HR leaders who all share a common interest in learning and developing their recruitment skills, knowledge and strategies.

The morning session will focus on the hot topic on everyone’s lips – GDPR.

 We would recommend that for this particular session those leading on meeting GDPR compliance in your HR teams also attend.

The session will be led by Ruchita Desai from Lumesse who is currently leading on ensuring this global company is compliant with EU GDPR Regulation. 

The afternoon session is for our TalentLink subscribers only to share best practice and development on our ATS.

To cover the cost of our guest speaker on GDPR there will be a nominal fee for this event of £50.00 per person.

Spaces are limited so make sure to secure your space.
