Sourcing’s tipping point, race to the bottom or strategic business partnering. What is the future of Sourcing.


The sourcing function within internal recruitment teams has been steadily evolving over the last 5 years. At the beginning many saw this as a fantastic opportunity to drive direct recruitment and reduce agency reliance, which is was and still is. My question though is that as this has matured and we’ve moved forward, rather than taking this as the foundations to give the function stability and credibility to then springboard the function into more strategic and impactful areas. Are we seeing a drive for efficiency and a focus on cost instead of value, resulting in a function that is fast being seen as a transactional and low value add function?

“Talent Attraction 2020” A Panel Discussion


Once upon a networking time, to find a great candidate many recruiters would simply head online to their preferred professional network. As time has ticked on and the results have started to lose their quality shine, the right talent has become harder to find. A recruiter needs to do more to lure and engage and candidates have become more empowered by successful employer branding. So what’s the real story behind candidate attraction in 2020? How will recruiters engage, retain and develop relationships with potential employees?

Join Broadbean, Adzuna, Glassdoor and a special guest in-house recruiter for “Talent Attraction 2020,” a panel discussion examining the intersection of recruitment marketing and employer branding, which is reinventing how job seekers find jobs today, and how recruiters will have to source tomorrow.

2020 vision: future proofing your business (and your career)


The world of work is changing and will soon be unrecognisable from what it is today.  On one hand we are told that robots will take our jobs, and yet on the other we are told that we will not be able to retire until we reach our late 70’s or even 80’s.  How can that be compatible?  From macro trends of urbanisation, demography and life expectancy to the ever increasing capability of technology, our businesses are facing competition from seemingly everywhere and all at once.

And for employees….. in 5 years there will be 5 billion people with smart phones accessing Wikipedia and every book ever written; how will you compete when there will always be someone cheaper, faster and maybe better than you?

Businesses and work as we know it will change significantly over the next 5 years, so what will happen and how can we future proof our businesses and our careers?  By connecting the dots in a meaningful way, we will consider these facts and more.
