The organisers of the second Job Board Summit Europe 2013, the job board network marketplace jobg8, proved once again to not only attract a Europe-wide attendance, but also to combine this conference event with a trace of British history. The conference location was chosen to be Dexter House at the Royal Mint Court, right in the center of a historical part of London. Dating back to 886, the Royal Mint was located adjacent to the Tower Hill. One of the Mint Masters was Sir Isaac Newton, philosopher, mathematician (Principia Mathematica) and widely acclaimed as one of the most important scientist of all time. However, the Job Board Summit Europe had it’s own agenda as issues like mobile recruiting, branding, social media recruiting and current industry challenges were at the top of the mint mind set.

Job Board Summit Europe 2013: A legal point of view

While the second Job Board Summit Europe held in London on December 4 / 5th centered around the usual issues job board operators, aggregators and recruiters have on their agenda, one topic often neglected in the day-to-day actions was the implication of upcoming government legislation on the job board industry. Jobg8, the organisers of the conference, were grateful to welcome Kevin Barrow, partner at Osborne Clarke, to introduce the audience to the pitfalls and challenges of the planned new legislation.
