Event description

Description

Join us for another data science community meet up in November.

This time our theme is career development. Our aim is to help government data scientists to help plan and progress their careers.

At the event we'll have a short panel made up of data leaders, Grade 7 data scientists and industry data scientists. After a short break there will be a facilitated discussion for people to work through in teams how to progress their careers.

Like last time, we'll be broadcasting the event to hubs across the UK. Come join us at 7 different locations:
