Theresa O’Brien – Talking Data Centre Talent: A crisis or an opportunity?

In this episode I am joined by Theresa O’Brien, Global Talent Resourcing Leader within CBRE Data Centre Solutions. Theresa provides an excellent insight into the challenges around talent attraction within a global organisation and the solutions being developed to overcome the challenges we all face.

We discuss how Theresa started her career in recruitment and how she first gained exposure to the data centre industry. We then discuss Theresa’s career within CBRE and her current role as a global talent leader.

We also discuss the challenges faced today within the data centre talent space, including diversity, attracting the next generation of talent, retention, global trends, and brand awareness. Theresa provides a great insight how CBRE and the sector as a whole is working together to manage the challenges and develop solutions to help the long term growth of the sector.

This is an excellent insight into the day to day reality of the talent challenges faced within the data centre sector.
