The London HR Connection is delighted to invite you to join our next webinar at 4.30pm on Thursday 1st October when we will be talking about how talent acquisition is morphing in front of our eyes to meet the challenges of a new world.

In this interactive session our panel of three leading experts from AO.com, Celonis and Join Talent, will explore the changes that have materialised in the UK labour market since March 2020 and review how this is impacting the way companies are being required to approach talent acquisition.

As the labour market has undergone its most spectacular shift in dynamics in nearly two decades, the talent acquisition models and functions which have been set up to source and retain talent in their processes are finding themselves in a new landscape. With applications for many types of roles now up to 15 times higher than a year ago, how are TA teams coping with this today? And, as importantly, what will need to change in terms of structure and technology within TA teams to give organisations the assurance that they will still be selecting the best candidates even in the face of a deluge of applications?

Our panellists include:

Katrina Hutchinson O’Neill is the CEO and co-founder of Join Talent, an award-winning talent solutions provider specialising in management consultancy in the talent acquisition and talent space as well as boutique RPO offerings for long and short-term projects. Katrina herself was the ‘UK In-House Recruitment Leader of the Year’ in 2018 and her background spans management consultancy as well as having led talent acquisition internationally for brands including StepStone, RBS and Nationwide.

Barbara Sutherland is Head of Talent Acquisition for AO.com and a career recruitment professional who has led recruitment for Jaguar Landrover and Lloyds Pharmacy.

Kevin Blair is Global Director of TA for Celonis, co-founder of Join Talent and a career long in-house senior recruitment leader with his former roles including global leadership of hiring for brands including IBM and Cisco.


Cost – free of charge.
