With the aim of presenting the Madrid City Council as a pole of innovation and transformation, the 'Madrid Talento' program was born, through which the Madrid City Council wants to capture and retain the abundant talent that is being trained in Madrid's universities, including the King Juan Carlos University.

'Madrid Talento' is a training initiative in which students who sign up will find "professionals from the Madrid City Council who will tell them about their experience as members of the municipal corporation, offering information and details of the possibilities of developing a professional career there ”, explains the vice-rector for Innovation, Transfer and Relations with Companies, Fernando García Muiña.

The initiative has had the collaboration of the Vice President for Students and the URJC Alumni Office, and will consist of a series of thematic sessions according to the degrees given by professionals who work in the City Council. This format will allow students to learn about an experience close to their field of study.

“Students will learn how the public sector works on innovative projects and services for citizens. A more dynamic professional ecosystem than the one offered by the image we usually have of public administrations”, explains García Muiña

Hen/Stag registrations for the sessions are open and will take place from March 8 to 29, addressing different professional profiles of the Madrid City Council related to fields ranging from Law to Architecture through Psychology or Nursing, among others. In this training, in addition, different innovative projects promoted by the municipal corporation will be announced.

As explained by the Vice-Rector for Students, Almudena López López, “the 'Madrid Talento' program is a unique opportunity for our students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, to find out about the possibilities of developing their professional career at the Madrid City Council. In addition, since it is a project aimed at attracting talent, their participation in the program is an opportunity to increase their chances of employment in the public sector”.

Collaboration between Institutions

This collaboration is one more example of the collaboration between the URJC and other public institutions. This formula makes it possible to consolidate and strengthen ties at other levels: internships, research contracts and provision of services that benefit both the university community and Madrid society as a whole.

The URJC is concerned about the future and, therefore, anticipates the new professional needs that may arise from the generations with more capabilities, both technological and language, that is, generation Z and Millennials will be taken into consideration. which only account for 8,3% of the total permanent workforce.
