Hiring Technical Talent
16th November 2016 | London, United Kingdom | 9am - 11.30am
Reconverse believes the post-Brexit landscape will see a major shift in the hiring of Digital and IT talent. The rise in uncertainty is creating an increase in the demand for contract workers, which paired with a growing skills shortage means it's more important now than ever to understand candidate behaviours in this space. With reports suggesting there could be a digital talent shortfall of 750,000 people in the UK by 2017, it’s essential companies have a strategy in place.
