Graduate Talent Management Masterclass

For Purpose is delighted to participate in the Graduate Talent Management Masterclass, taking place in The Wheel on Thursday 27th Nov at 9am.

For many not-for-profit organisations, finding the right people with the right skills is an increasing challenge for HR professionals and senior managers to contend with.

The arrival of full employment has had a knock-on effect on many organisations ability to attract and retain good talent and we will shortly see the arrival of ‘Generation Z’ in the workplace, adding a further driver of change into the employment landscape.

This masterclass is intended to provide a comprehensive insight into the area of graduate talent management for not-for-profit organisations. The session will touch on a range of core topics related to this including how a graduate programme can address entry-level resourcing requirements and build organisational capacity for the future, best practice in learning & development models and what organisations can do to manage the effects of full employment and ‘Gen Z’ers’ joining the workforce. The masterclass will be delivered by a range of expert speakers from both within and outside the sector and will be chaired by Adrian McCarthy, For Purpose Manager.

The session will culminate with a panel discussion and Q&A from the audience on the topics discussed.
