Shop Talents is an exciting new concept for a retail education and career development hub in Ireland, which would be launched by ShelfLife magazine, in collaboration with students at Trinity College, Dublin.

The new hub, currently in the research phase, would aim to connect students and the retail industry to create positive impacts and make contributions to the local businesses.

As a recent report released by Retail Ireland on ‘Retail Technologies and Future Skills’, points out, it is essential for businesses to hire new talents equipped with retail knowledge and digital skills to adapt to the new post-Covid norm of accelerated retail digitalization.

Shop Talents would provide three main services for both the student and the retail employer: an e-portfolio uploading facility, retail skills learning, and recruitment website. By offering education training and activity relevant to the business, the hub dedicates to create an environment which makes digital recruitment easier for both participants.

Therefore, we kindly ask you to participate in this hub development with your knowledge and work experience regarding the sector and its recruitment. The following survey aims to retrieve more industry insights which will benefit the hub’s facilitation.

Thank you in advance for your time and efforts in this survey.

The updates of the hub will be informed via our newsletter in the future.
