This free online professional development webinar hosted by career experts Career Farm is open to Leeds alumni, students and staff members.

Register here for the webinar: AI and recruitment practice - What's happening for employers and job seekers now and in the future?

How are employers responding to the need for swift screening of top global talent in the new remote workforce where location of the employee becomes less important? What are the top tips from an employer and job seeker perspective for automated screening and virtual interviews? Is this fully automated process going to feel appropriate with applicants or do we need to bring back humans?

This panel event will discuss the topic of automation and virtual interviews in the recruitment process, explore what’s happening around AI and how this might influence recruitment. What are the potential limitations, opportunities and threats of AI? AI touches all elements of life and business – is it just a matter of time before AI makes all the hiring decisions?

Panel includes:

Lisa Scales, Head of Talent Acquisition for Nestle

David Stephenson, Data and AI Specialist and Consultant

Clare Hudson, Executive Careers Coach and Consultant
