Tech3Shed careers fair – increasing diversity in SW tech

Posted on

The Women’s Tech Hub~Bristol are hosting a careers fair in March, aimed at increasing diversity in the tech industry in the South West. Running on 15th and 16th March 2019, it’s free to all and all are welcome (but please be aware that it is a recruiter-free event). See below for more information from the Hub, and sign up to attend here.

The Bristol and South West tech industry is currently booming and we’re all aware that finding talent and keeping them has never been so difficult. We also know that careers change, people can learn and there’s a wealth of amazing people in the area who simply didn’t take up tech as an option. That, along with a variety of Universities, Colleges and training establishments in the area all creating talented tech graduates who we would love to stay in the region.

With all of this in mind we decided that we could help sort out some of these problems by working together so with the HBBWTHub and Desklodge we came up with the power of three, set out to curate a Careers Fair and named it Tech³Shed (everything is Bristol is called Shed so we thought we may as well follow the trend!).

We know that the best way of finding a great job, or finding a great team member is far easier in a relaxed atmosphere and through getting to know them. We also know that recruitment fairs can be intimidating and that the world of tech can be slightly confusing for those on the outside. So we decided that we would put the two together and run workshops to help demistify things, introduce trainers and other options to help get you into tech and invite our members down to chat to the candidates and show what they have to offer.

Please note that this is a recruiter free event, any recruiters found approaching attendees or exhibitors will be asked to leave.
