Thinking creatively to solve the tech skills shortage

Wednesday 21 September • 17:30 to 19:30 (BST) • Leeds

Thinking creatively to solve the tech skills shortage

The talent shortage within the tech sector has been well reported with the demand for tech talent showing no sign of slowing down. But could your business be fishing in the wrong talent pool?

During this event, we’ll explore the concept of hidden workers, and how by expanding their hiring sources, businesses in Leeds can find people with the skills they’re searching for.

You’ll hear from youth unemployment charity, Generation, about how its data engineering programme is giving opportunities to unemployed youths; from Infinity Works about our Academy is helping experienced workers switch to a career in tech, and about the work we’re doing with clients to reskill their people through bespoke training.

So if you’re wanting to learn how your business can reach more highly-skilled tech talent, or you’re interested in exploring different routes into the industry, then this event is one not to be missed.
