The session kicked off with a presentation by Ivan Jimenez, the Managing Director of Bizkaia Talent, who spoke about the opportunities currently offered by the Basque labour market and the profiles which are most in demand. He also presented some of the latest innovative tools which can help professionals to continue to develop their careers in the Basque Country.
