What is Talent Pool?
Through the Talent Pool we are developing the next generation of skilled employees, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs, business consultants and academics.
The Talent Pool is a unique programme developed by the University of Birmingham to support research students in developing their enterprise skills. Through an intensive training programme, students are challenged to develop key enterprise skills that will put students in a strong position to focus on their career aspirations and lay the foundations of achieving these career goals.
The programme actively encourages students to participate in knowledge exchange relationships with businesses. To encourage this, students will have the opportunity gain membership (upon successful completion of the programme and assessment) of our highly reputed Talent Pool Group. Businesses can then tap into this talent through the commissioning of specific short-term consultancy projects and/or work placements.
For Doctoral Researchers at the University of Birmingham
We provide a programme of professional development that provides customised transferable skills training. Find out how your research skills are sought by companies and the social and private sectors. Build competencies in consulting and enterprise that will support your academic and other career aspirations. Understand business models, pricing and project management; upgrade your pitching and presenting skills; develop stronger negotiation, influencing and other interpersonal skills; and build a network of peers, academics, business people and leaders.
For businesses looking to tap into our talent
If you are a business looking for additional resources to deliver specific projects, then the Talent Pool may be the solution.
