Bizkaia Talent


Bizkaia Talent brings together over 30 organizations from the province in order to address talent attraction in Colombia

  • The Basque association organised an informative session at CEBEK after carrying out several networking events in different cities of the South American country.

On the 28th of May Bizkaia Talent welcomed at CEBEK over 50 representatives from 33 Bizkaia organizations with the aim of sharing the conclusions reached after the networking events carried out in different cities in Colombia last March. The event also served to reveal the level of interest of the companies in these initiatives.

One of the central points of the session was the presentation of the feedback received from the over 300 highly qualified Colombian professionals who took part in the encounters. Furthermore, a classification of the profiles identified was displayed, and it is noteworthy that 80% of these pertain to the engineering sector.

Also presented were advances made in the “Study & Work in the Basque Country” programme, within the framework of the “Bizkaia with the Talent” strategy of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, the aim of which is to attract international students by means of official master’s degrees available in the STEM area at the universities of the Basque Country.

Other subjects covered at the event were the requirements and necessary procedures to follow for the incorporation of Colombian professionals, together with presentations by experts in Colombian talent, including representatives of Asocolvas (Association of Colombians in the Basque Country) and the GAIA Cluster.

Mr Ivan Jimenez, Managing Director of Bizkaia Talent, emphasised the response obtained from the organizations which attended the event: “We are satisfied with the attendance at this session, which demonstrates Colombia’s potential as a source of talent for our province”.
