Growing Talent 22 has begun!
It’s strange to reflect on Growing Talent which recently passed its 5 year anniversary. Verifiable statistics stand at 204 people who have been selected by employers for a place on the programme. Of these 148 have completed and gone into permanent employment.
10 June 2019 saw the 22nd Employers’ Speed Dating take place at Etc Venues in Eastcheap!
You can see from the feature photo – which shows just just half the- room the buzz, conversation and laughter!
So who came along?
Suz & Pedro from Pertemps in Holborn meeting some potential new talent to join them.
We had over 45 applicants attend the event and seven employers. Unfortunately Ballymore couldn’t attend due to sickness. With groups of 6-8 applicants it’s time for a change!
After listening to feedback – we will no longer be using ice breakers. Instead – mutual summary profiles will be switched! Those who ramble and over talk due to nerves will be restrained (verbally – not literally!) to enable everyone to receive equal exposure.
Check back on future programmes to see how the new process works out!
