How are the best employers growing & retaining the right mix of new talent?

Due to planned strike action we have had to move the date. Join us at the Kings Fund in London on 7th July to explore the best ways to grow your own talent with TA leaders and senior early career professionals from the world’s largest and most dynamic employers.

This year’s Emerging Talent Summit will present insights from leading industry experts and solution providers alongside award-winning TA teams and leaders on successful strategies and new developments in the recruitment and retention of early careers talent.


Who will attend?

This event will bring together Talent Acquisition Leaders and Senior Early Career Professionals from TALiNT Partners’ network

What will you gain from this event?

TALiNT Partners events are highly valued for the quality of speakers, delegates and content. We combine high-level strategic perspectives on new trends, challenges and solutions with in-depth roundtable discussions to share tactics with peers and experts in great venues.

The Emerging Talent Summit offers a range of insights on how to create a nurturing platform for emerging talent, understand the talent needs of tomorrow’s organisation and how to build an employer brand which resonates with a diverse mix of early talent.

It’s an opportunity to connect and learn with peers, discover new solutions from the best providers, and debate new challenges on the horizon that you can better prepare for.


A fantastic event for Early Talent leaders, expertly run, with rich content and great speakers.

James Gordanifar, Head of Early Careers, Clyde & Co

These events give me three things: Validation. Confirming that no one else has got it 100% right and finding out some of the things you are doing are actually very good! Innovation. Learning new things, whether it’s a new market trend, a new tool/technique, or even a supplier who could make your life easier! 3. Conversation. It’s always great to catch-up with industry leaders and peers to find out what’s new in their role/company.
