  • Resilience and contingency
  • Responding to a crisis
  • Agile Workforce Planning

Adam Gibson is the Strategic Workforce Planning Leader for the Metropolitan Police Service and is accountable for end-to-end workforce planning, resourcing and people analytics.  In the past two years he has focused on reducing costs whilst maintaining service delivery and responding to urgent operational requirements, including the recent terror attacks.  Concurrently, he has led a transformation of the workforce planning and analytics service and is the Director of Agile Workforce Planning.

Recruitment after Brexit

Tracey Park, Solutions Director, Reed Talent Solutions 

  • An insight into the views of our UK and European clients as to the current and possible future impact of Brexit on the recruitment industry; 
  • Considering the impact to sourcing, screening and retaining talent; 
  • Views from clients across both the public and private sector; 
  • Along with the views of senior stakeholders within our business and external experts

Within her role, Tracey continually adds value to client engagements and in particular meeting specific challenges including the “value for money agenda”. Tracey heads up a team of public sector experts who have made their mark in the Public Sector as knowledgeable and supportive, tailoring local solutions from both a strategic and tactical level thereby delivering significant outcomes for local communities. 

10:00-10:20

Can Government Recruit World Class Digital Talent?

Linda Ross, Specialist Talent Acquisition & Recruitment, and Michael Connolly, Head of Digital Engagement, Department for Work and Pensions 

  • How social purpose provides an edge in an ultra-competitive recruitment market
  • Mobilising the organisation to sell itself
  • Building a seamless in-house recruitment and marketing team 

Linda has worked for DWP and its various predecessors since 1985. The first half of that was spent in Operations, but put on a hard hat and boots in 2002 as JCP Implementation Manager for Hampshire and the IOW. In 2003 she joined HR which she soon recognised was definitely her career anchor. She has enjoyed a number of different HRBP's roles in both operations and corporate centre across a wide range of interesting senior stakeholders. This has often involved supporting the business through various changes including organisational redesign in Op's and the creation of Business Transformation Group. She has enjoyed all the roles for different reasons but the golden thread is always about making a difference and supporting individuals to grow and develop. For the last 3 years she has led the Specialist Talent, Acquisition and Recruitment Team, which includes SCS recruitment. Our main purpose is to bring specialist talent into DWP, our current focus on digital. Outside of work her main interests are travel, supporting a charity in Sri Lanka and watching sport: utopia being when you can combine all three!!

Michael is Head of Digital Engagement at DWP, a role spanning people engagement, internal communications, external marketing, content design, social media strategy and incident management. He has worked in government communications since 2004, delivering campaigns encouraging people to - among other things - fit smoke alarms, save for retirement and employ ex-offenders. He worked in the media before joining the Civil Service, including five years as an advertising exec at the Guardian.

10:25-10:50

Innovation Spotlight: TheJobPost and more to be announced soon...

Next generation supply chain
The way employers work with recruitment agencies is radically changing.  The era of static Preferred Supplier Lists (PSL’s) is over. Talent acquisition teams want to focus on direct recruitment and only use recruitment agencies for specialist roles. This means building agile agency supply chains where they can find and contract with the best agency consultants quickly and easily. We will explore how innovative talent acquisition teams are leveraging platforms and data to build, engage and manage their high-performing recruitment agency supply chain.
Howard Flint, Advisor, TheJobPost

His first public sector role was with the Judicial Appointments Commission, where he held various roles, including delivery of selection campaigns, and a full review of the recruitment process for Judges. Since moving to the Cabinet Office 2 years ago, Stuart has been responsible for setting up an internal search team for Non Executive Public Appointments, and now runs a team of staff delivering Director & Director General recruitment campaigns across the Civil Service.
