Talent Fest 2020

Helping digital, media and tech businesses in the region attract, train and retain the talent they need to thrive and deliver great work.

What is this about?

Talent Fest is a week-long festival designed to ensure the growth of our region’s digital industry, by connecting businesses with the talent they need to thrive and providing a platform for them to better understand how they can maintain and build stronger, more inclusive workforces.

What has happened so far?

Over the past 6 months, we have been busy curating a series of talks and content to allow companies to increase their employee brand, meet new talent, learn best practice and share their expertise to inform and inspire job seekers. We are really proud of the programme we had put together and are keen to find ways to still deliver this to our community.

What is planned?

Due to these uncertain times, we have had to change plans, but this is what we are now hoping to deliver. The wellbeing of our community will always be our number one priority and we hope you understand the measures that we have chosen to take.

Monday 27th April - The Virtual Portfolio Clinic

We will be sharing best practice advice on creating a good portfolio from experts who were due to attend the Clinic. We will also facilitate 1-2-1 calls between companies to talk with attendees.

Tuesday 28th April - The Virtual Skills Summit

Industry Talks: We will be hosting expert talks online and there will be an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and share thoughts. 

Conversations: We will host a locked online platform for attendees to have online conversations about topics from the day. 

We recognise that a key part of the Skills Summit is to physically bring businesses leaders together. We are looking to run a networking event later in the year to deliver on this.

Wednesday 29th April - The Virtual Jobs Fair 

Industry Talks: Videos of the talks will be made live on the day of the Jobs Fair alongside a platform where you will be able to ask questions and share thoughts. 

National Careers Service: We will welcome NCS to explain their service and they will be available all on their hotlines and through the webchat throughout the day. 

Wired Sussex Hotline: The Wired Sussex team will be available to answer any questions you have about your digital career.
