BE BASQUE DUAL CAREER CENTRE
European studies state that a growing number of high qualified professionals are on the move as DUAL CAREER COUPLES. This geographical mobility influences their personal and professional lives. The agents have to address this fact if they want to attract talented high qualified professionals.
The attractiveness of these institutions is no longer defined just by the excellent projects, but by additional sociocultural integration factors and most of all career prospects for both partners to develop a life project in common. This will influence our country to maximise the economy based in knowledge, innovation and creativity.
Bizkaia Talent is aware of this gap. Thus, it launches the BE BASQUE DUAL CAREER Centre, whose aims are, on the one hand:
- Analyse, Guide, in a personal way, the Relocation Service users’ couples, concerning the labour & sociocultural integration in terms of Hiring, Entrepreneurship, Voluntarism;
- Intermediate with the agents of the system and our Network;
- Inform about Funding and Grants;
- Inform about activities and events.
, and on the other hand,
- Support organisations as a Negotiation Tool to attract and retain the required Talent;
- Update our Data Base to find specific labour profiles to back up the Basque organisations.
To carry out such a strategy, the support of the ecosystem agents is essential. Therefore, a growing Network of different agents has been constituted to guide the couples of academics and high qualified professionals in their labour and sociocultural integration in our country.
To receive this personalised service, it is necessary to register here.

The Be Basque Dual Career Centre promoted by bizkaia talent visits the facilities of ICAZA COLABORANDO, a member of the Network, in Bilbao
Last Monday, 30 November, as an activity within the recently-launched Be Basque Dual Career Centre, about ten international professionals visited the facilities of ICAZA COLABORANDO S2M BILBAO, one of the members of the Network which support and are engaged in this initiative.
The Be Basque Dual Career Centre is a service which offers personalized advice and guidance to highly-qualified staff, their partners and relatives so as to achieve their adequate professional and personal integration in our country.
During the visit, Jose Angel Icaza, founder of Icaza Colaborando, explained his new project to those present. It is a co-working social space aimed at establishing a network of collaborators-friends who help create an atmosphere of collaboration, innovation and creativity based on the social economy. They also discussed the importance of being a member of the Seats 2 Meet mesh which provides them with an international character which enables them to extend their contacts and generate “serendipity”.
