Manchester has an ambition to become a digital city and in order to achieve this we need a highly skilled digital workforce that is big enough to serve the needs of an ever-growing industry. We need a pipeline of talent that will leave school, college and university with industry standard, work ready, digital skillsets.
The annual Manchester Digital Skills Festival highlights and addresses the issues facing the sector as well as addressing them on a practical level by hosting the UK’s largest digital recruitment fair, offering tours of local digital businesses and opportunities for local school children to gain some hands on, practical experience of digital. We also use this opportunity to present our annual Skills Audit Report.
The Skills Festival is a great chance to showcase the amazing digital businesses we have in the North West and show students that there are wonderful digital career opportunities on their doorstep.

Tuesday 13th February: Digtal Skills Conference
Wednesday 14th February: Talent Day
Thursday 15th and Friday 16th February: Experience Days
There will be sponosrship opportunities priced at £2,500 for an event sponsor or £5,000 for an event partner.
