What is the be basque talent network?
Be Basque Talent Network is the largest network of highly qualified professionals who are or want to be linked to our Country, regardless of their territorial origin.
What is its aim?
Bring professionals working all over the world in contact with other professionals and companies so as to facilitate talent movement and build contacts and business relationships with all those who have had, have or want to have a relationship with the Basque Country.
Who are the potential users?
It is aimed at two types of users. Firstly, any person with a university degree who is interested in connecting with our country, irrespective of their place of birth, their place of residence, the sector or the industry in which they work. Wanting to contact other professionals or companies is what matters. Secondly, the organizations which are interested in contacting professionals who are working in the Basque Country or in any other part of the world, either to consider employment possibilities, start business conversations or just help each other.
How does it work? What are the advantages it offers?
After registration as a user, either at the Be Basque Talent Network or at Bizkaia Talent, the website provides access to a specific user profile, with employment offers and varied information as well as access to the main services, an information exchange forum on various topics related to economy, culture and work-related issues in the Basque Country, and the main search tool, the Basque Talent Map (emphasize).
This tool provides a visual map where we can see the work location, by country and city, of the users of the network and enables us to segment it according to various criteria, such as the occupational sector, the place of residence or origin so that we can find the kind of professional or company we are looking for, while at the same time respecting the privacy that users may establish with regard to their contact details. Besides, those professionals who have not had the opportunity to work or live in our country are also provided with very useful information on the technological, scientific and business potential, the culture and the customs and the quality of life offered by the Basque Country.
Join the thousands of people who are already members of the most important international professional network related to one of the oldest but most advanced countries in the world, the Basque Country.
You “be basque” too.
