How do you attract foreign talent in a post-pandemic world?

Where
63 Dixon St
Haymarket NSW 2000

When

Wednesday 2 June from 5:30pm to 7pm

From machine learning to biotechnology, Australian tech companies are experiencing difficulties to find and manage talent who are separated by timezones and locations.

In the meantime, despite the border closures, Australia remains an attractive migration destination. But, what are your options as a skilled migrant or company seeking to recruit offshore talent and what skills are most in-demand?

What you will learn:

  • How to source and recruit niche talent (on and off-shore)

  • How to manage a fully distributed team across many timezones

  • What makes Australia a hub for foreign talent in various fields of deeptech?

  • Migration opportunities for tech talent, including state and national visa options, and how to increase your chances.

Our panel:

  • Dr. Christina Giarmatzi, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Sydney Quantum Academy, Centre for Quantum Software and Information

  • Simon Devitt, Senior Lecturer at Centre for Quantum Software and Information at UTS

  • Rob Liu, Founder and CEO of ContactOut

  • Jeff Deutsch, Head of Growth at ContactOut

This event is part of the Visiting Entrepreneur Program, an annual City of Sydney initiative that connects international entrepreneurs with our local startup ecosystem. The 1-10 June 2021 program puts a spotlight on transformative technologies tackling major global challenges, with an emphasis on biotechnology and quantum technology.
