What is FT Talent?

Today, the FT Talent Challenge is a series of international events, with annual FT as well as partnership editions.

The FT Talent programme brings together talented individuals who are proactive, curious and able to think on their feet to take part in the FT Talent Challenge, a competition in our headquarters around the world.

Students and early career professionals from diverse backgrounds work closely with the FT to solve business cases. The 3-day competition gives participants access to unique FT content, workshops and people. It helps foster new creative thinking within the FT, develop potential solutions to strategic business issues and stimulate disruption within the media ecosystem.

It makes YOU part of the change.
