If you listened to the TA Leader interviews in Episode 619, you’d know that Recruiting Future recently collaborated with The Chad & Cheese podcast to host two face-to-face unconference-style events in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

On the day between the two events, we decided to combine podcast recording with tourism. What better way to do this than to use a campervan as a mobile recording studio and drive around the southeast of Scotland, taking in some of its world-famous coastal views? Well, that was the plan anyway.

Our plans took an unexpected turn as the weather had other ideas. But this led to some exciting impromptu discussions on AI and the future of work, sparked by a tour of a two-hundred-year-old whisky distillery, a flying visit to a seven-hundred-year-old castle, and a trip to the beach.

In this episode, we discuss:

• Is the resume dead?

• What’s going on with skills-based hiring

• The differences and similarities between talent acquisition in Scotland and talent acquisition in the US

• Attitudes to risk

• The tricky balance between robots and humans

• What does the long-term future look like

• Do we have the right attitude towards the future as an industry?

• AI is already taking TA jobs.

• Why smaller employers may have an advantage

• What happens when AI is just baked into everything?

• What is going to change in the next three years
