Description

The Wired Sussex Breakfast Sessions share best practice on subjects ranging from marketing and branding, to intellectual property and investment opportunities. And there’s coffee and croissants too. What’s not to like?

Struggling to find the talent you need to grow your business? Have you considered investing in junior talent?

Midweight to senior digital, media and tech talent are sometimes hard to find and expensive to hire. Have you considered investing in junior talent? Great employees are a real asset and, depending on the needs of your business, you might want to consider looking into the fresh pool of talent out there.

This session will focus on the ins and outs of hiring at junior-level. Come and find out if this is the right move for your business and get practical advice on how to assess junior-level skills at the interview stage and successfully support them in starting their career with you.

So, if you’re looking to snap the best upcoming employees for your business, this session is for you!

At this session, we’ll be joined by:

Tracy Matthewson, Director – Employee First Programme, American Express
