Every year, one of the highlights at #SOSUEU is the ‘hacks’. Speakers and delegates sharing new and productive ways of using tools and techniques to find talent.
This year we are taking it further by having a day dedicated to hacking. We are having a #hackathon or rather a #sourcethon on 27 September.
Whether you are a perennial tinkerer or just love playing with tools and technology, you will enjoy #sourcethon. It’s one day of harnessing wisdom of the crowd, networking, making new friends and exploring cool news ways of finding talent.

A hackathon focused on talent sourcing. We will look at new ways to tinker with technology and try and figure out new techniques to find talent in a group setting.
Who can attend Sourcethon?
#sourcethon is free for all #sosueu delegates and can be attended by any delegates who have a two days pass to the main conference
What will be tackled at Sourcethon?
In a nutshell we will look at new ways of finding talent. It’s sourcing at its purest combining on the spot hacking and the wisdom of the crowd.
What will actually happen?
Roughly, hacking leaders will be appointed and teams of hackers made up. Each team will tackle (hack) a particular sourcing problem or challenge.
What’s the end outcome?
It’s a great way of meeting other delegates in an informal setting. But we will also solve some serious sourcing issues faced by sourcers.
What’s on offer for companies?
Companies who sent six or more delegates to #sosueu can submit their sourcing problems/issues for the sourcing community to solve. Get in touch with us for details.
What will I get out of #sourcethon?
Remember not being able to network of meet fellow delegates? #sourcethong is a great way to meet other delegates in an informal setting, and do something fun and useful.
Where will it be held?
#sourcethon will be hosted by ABN AMRO . The venue is a few minutes away from the main #sosueu RAI venue

When I first came to the world of recruiting back in 1996, the internet had only been publicly available for around five years. The world then was only beginning to understand its potential. I recognized it as game-changer. And I was right. It was the death of recruiting as it was and the birth of how it would be. Leveraging this realization enabled me to achieve my first great success in this business. I went from a hapless rookie to an industry leader by doing one simple thing: connecting with people online. No one had recruited like that before. This taught me a valuable lesson about the business of hiring people: you have to adapt and innovate to succeed.
Looking forward to attending #SOSUUK in 2 weeks! Particularly interested in seeing the latest tricks & tips for global #sourcing strategies currently being implemented. #London #TalentAcquisition #Recruitment
