It was great to hear so many of your success stories that we played a part in, the hard part was all yours so big congrats! Please stay in touch as we feel like proud parents when we hear how well you are doing. To the newer members who came along to support and be part of the event – massive thanks for coming out of your comfort zone on a wet day! We will support you!

The Sponsors were amazing – so engaged and supportive and brilliantly open to talking to not just job-ready, but to advise and guide the returners or tech-curious, we salute you!

To all the attendees – Good Luck and come to us if you need support – check out our Women’s Tech Hub page for details on our support and networking. We are just joining with Codehub for free training support on our Workshop Wednesdays so come along and be part of it all.

As you can see from the image, we are back on it and raring to go. Actually we are having a week in Falmouth to discuss how we take this forward to be the BEST recruitment event for tech diversity in the World! (yes we are tired and hopeful .. but it’s all possible right?)

Love to you all, we can’t do it without you!

KETL logo

We are super excited that KETL will be at our Careers Fair on 9th November 2019 to support us – they were also our very first sponsor in Women’s Tech Hub and a brilliant team hence the “super excited” mention! (its a bit like having your close friends around when you are running a posh dinner party with work colleagues and need a bit of a confidence boost !)

We know that KETL is completely behind our social values and aims as they have been behind us since day one, including recruiting and training up our careers transferrers/returners. They are also absolutely mad about Data and about to launch a new platform – so go speak to them about it.

“Your business never stops generating data. The ability to pull apart, focus and analyse this flow of information is the answer to making better decisions about your supply chain, your product, and your customers.

We help you design and implement your data strategy, ensuring all your data is in one place so you can get reports out quickly and accurately to the teams that need them, to start generating actionable insight. “

We are KETL and we love data.

Further information on KETL can be found via Twitter @KETL_BI and on LinkedIn – seriously, go check them out!

If anyone would like a personal intro to KETL at any stage including the event then please mail us on info@wthub.org (they’ll chat anyway without an intro!)

Career Changers

Jane Scaife UX

At our Careers fair we are about engagement with diverse and brilliant people. We spend our time in women’s tech hub speaking to members who are simply trying to find a way into the tech industry. It seems like a done deal with so many companies telling us that they don’t get any women or minorities applying and our members saying they would love to get in. This is what we are all about and we love it when we acheive our aims to bridge this gap as its normally such an obvious fit (to us at least). Jane is a great example – it wasn’t quick but having the conversations with our forward thinking company members and continuously supporting our members can acheive great results.

Read the blog here about how Jane managed to change career and how she’s loving it!

Just getting ready .. this is us …

beating heart

We have bought in tiny giant a great, cutting edge, marketing company to help let everyone know we are coming (with Gifs like this!). We believe by advertising wider it will help reach more companies and hive them an awareness of just how the ‘inclusion’ issue can be fixed with simple solutions. The Bristol Tech Fair is set to be the most exciting thing in the calender at the Bristol Tech Fest, we will be talking the next generation with Technotopia, Careers with us and a mini-conference with the WISE campaign about Diversity and Inclusion.

We love to see our members talking directly to the engineers CEO’s and simply having straight conversations, it removes a lot of barriers. At the last event we got great people and great companies talking, understanding the issues, and actually getting jobs. If you want to get involved in this event then mail us on info@wthub.org and we can help you – after all we are simply set up for companies wanting to find great talent, and talented people wanting to talk to companies directly. Bingo!! Thats what this is.
