Professional Development Day
Talent Day is the largest specialist careers fair in the North. Each year over 1800 graduates and job seekers attend to find out more about the latest careers on offer at some of Greater Manchester’s most exciting and innovative tech companies. 40+ businesses attend and there are upwards of 250 jobs on offer. It’s the perfect day to find new talent, or if you’re a jobseeker, to take the next step in your career.
The conference will take place from 1:30pm - 5:30pm and will be live streamed from Manchester Technology Centre.
We'll consider topics such as employment post-COVID; what the tech industry needs to bounce back; growth areas and some emerging industry trends. We will also be sharing the findings from this year's national Digital Skills Audit, in partnership with the Institute of Coding.
Digital Futures industry experience days bring to life the world of work for Greater Manchester’s young people.
