Invitation IWCN HR Expert Breakfast #1 2019

What do you mean, scarcity?
There are so many internationals looking for a job!
The year 2018 is coming to an end, now that the holidays are almost here. Yet the International Welcome Center North is already looking beyond the holiday season: the first HR Expert Breakfast of 2019 has been scheduled and you are cordially invited! 
On 17 January 2019 the IWCN, in collaboration with Talent in Bedrijf, is organizing an HR Expert Breakfast about international recruitment. In the contemporary dynamic employment market, finding the right candidates is challenging. New insights resulting from thought-provoking theses on recruitment would, therefore, be much appreciated! And how about literally crossing borders by focusing (more) on the many internationals in the Northern Netherlands who are looking for a job?
During this session, our guests can participate in two workshops:
Elske Dijkstra of Bekaert Combustion Technology will discuss the do’s and don’ts of international recruitment.

For more than two decades, BCT has been the world’s leading supplier of innovative premix gas burners and heat-exchangers. The company has expanded rapidly in the last couple of years: there are now four production locations and sites were opened in China and Romania.

Bart Boerema and Harold Ezinga of Talent in Bedrijf will take you along in their daily routine, which involves scouting and recruiting candidates for their clients.

Talent in Bedrijf are experts in the field of recruitment and work for numerous organizations in public, as well as business sectors. Bart and Harold will encourage participants to give their opinion on several thought-provoking theses.
