In line with HSD’s ambition to increase the number of skilled employees available for security organisations, HSD is setting up the Security Talent Community. It focuses on aligning the demand for skilled personnel with the availability of students and professionals interested in making a career in safety and security. The community is supported by the Security Talent platform, that offers an up-to-date overview of jobs, assignments, internships, public and private courses and trainings in security.

The portal will be officially launched during this HSD Café by Ingrid van Engelshoven, deputy mayor and alderman for the Knowledge Economy, International Affairs, Youth and Education of The Hague. We have furthermore invited speakers with different backgrounds to reflect on the development of human capital in the safety and security field and on the related opportunities and challenges of the security labour market.

Security Talent Community

HSD Security Talent is the education and career community for students and professionals in the fast-growing field of safety and security. The Security Talent platform enables students to make informed study choices and employers can bring their vacancies directly to the attention of the currently scarce security talent. This way HSD Security Talent stimulates a career in security and contributes to employers’ increasing need for security talent. It is only with qualified staff  that the Dutch Security cluster ‘The Hague Security Delta’ will be able to realise more jobs, more business activity and a safer world.

About the HSD Café 
The HSD Cafés are organized for HSD partners on every first and third Thursday of each month (except on public holidays). From cyber to critical infrastructure, 20 sessions will be organized around security topics relevant for companies, the government, and knowledge organizations. In the first hour of this HSD Café, an expert will briefly present a security topic, dilemma, or innovation, followed by an informal discussion. The second part of the HSD Café will consist of drinks and a possibility to network.

The HSD Cafés provide an excellent opportunity to meet (potential) business partners, bring along your contacts, expand your knowledge, and shape the debate on key security issues of the future. Tell us what you think. Let your voice count, expand your network, and join the debate!

Unfortunately there is no parking available underneath the HSD Campus. From 14.00h. you can park for free in the neighbourhood.
