‘Bizkaia Talent is a non-profit organisation supported by the Provincial Council of Bizkaia along with other private organisations based in the Historical Territory of Bizkaia. It was established in 2005 and had a multi-disciplinary young team working to develop the conditions and procedures for the recruitment, engagement and retention of talented people in innovative projects in Bizkaia, thus giving a boost to fields of innovative advanced knowledge.
’Bizkaia Talent provides the community with a number of free services such as relocation, aid, contact making, guidance and intermediation. Why did we come to think that all these services were necessary to the Bizkaia society? Because we had the know-how. And what is our know-how about? It is based on the results of a series of investigations made by Bizkaia Talent jointly with universities, market research companies and consulting firms to help our society move forward, working and innovating.
’Bizkaia Talent also attends local, national and international career fairs, technology breakfasts, seminars and other events where we show our know-how. We are members of the Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network (RVCTI) and belong to the mobility network Euraxess Services of the European Commission, which in 2008 designated us as a Local Contact Point, or local support centre for this European and international network.’
