Event description

Description

Join us at our next employer breakfast and find out how the UK’s top employers are diversifying thinking in their tech teams.

Technology promises a future for everyone, but as an industry - could we be offering digital opportunities to get the best from a wider talent pool? With Brexit looming uncertainly on the horizon, expanding our recruitment approach is the smartest place to begin.

Together with our hiring partners we'll be discussing a range of different strategies for attracting and retaining a diverse workforce.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to create a more inclusive recruitment process
  • What attributes to look for that will have bigger business impact
  • Where to source a diverse range of candidates

This event is for anyone involved with hiring, from Tech Team Leads, to HR.
