  • What is the candidate’s market and where did it come from? How can I compete?
  • Employer branding and employee value propositions: the contouring of the talent world
  • Employee engagement: how to retain key staff – the secret to prolonged success
  • Financial decision making - when is the right time to employ?
  • Types of employment - casual, permanent, part time or contract
