As we know that conferences & career fairs can be a bit daunting, we have decided to ensure that anyone coming along feels comfortable and gets the most out of their visit. As luck should have it the very wonderful UWE Women in Engineering group called Curiosity Connections offering us up some of their members to help out. We would like to say a bit thank you to them and look forward to ensuring everyone attending the event has a great time. We will start announcing our workshops shortly and also another group that are coming and we know our members are excited about …
We are delighted that Graphcore will be at our Careers Fair on the 15th & 16th March 2019 and are looking to recruit/support. We know that, as being part of this careers fair, Graphcore are dedicated to ensuring they recruit from a diverse network and we are really pleased to have them on board as a Women’s Tech Hub member.
Graphcore has created a completely new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for machine intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current technologies, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general machine intelligence. We believe our IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for machine intelligence compute. The performance of Graphcore’s IPU is going to be transformative across all industries and sectors, whether you are a medical researcher, roboticist or autonomous car manufacturer.– Graphcore

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
The Tech3Shed team
We are finally off and running with the Careers fair and are speaking to lots of great companies. The idea behind supporting our members has been in discussion for over a year so its great to finally put it into action. We are aware that there are many companies and agencies talking about diversity and inclusion but we have always been about doing and not just talking about it.
Our members already recognise that and rather than just sitting on panels and telling us that they agree with it, they’ve actually put some money behind it and supported us with implementing practical solutions. So we would like to say a big thank you to all our members whom we all hope to see at the fair (its part of the membership).
So thanks go to KETL, ALD, UltraSOC, Esoterix, Deloitte & Bud.
And a Big thanks to GRAPHCORE for coming aboard – we look forward to working with you! Anybody wanting to join the fair, which includes Women’s Tech Hub membership please mail us on email@example.com – or to speak to Women’s Tech Hub directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have opened the eventbrite sign-up page here . You are welcome to join up for both days as we will have different workshops. It will be running on Friday the 15th from 2pm through until drinks and networking in the evening and on Saturday the 16th from 10am until 4pm. Hopefully this will give everyone a chance to pop along and meet with the companies and attend some workshops. You do not have to stay for the full time you are welcome to simply pop your head in and say hi if you like. If you are coming alone and wish for some support at the event then please contact us and we can arrange for someone to escort you around the event and introduce you to companies of interest.
We do not allow any social media of attendees at the event. If you wish to take photos then we will have set photo areas where attendees can take photos with agreement of the participants for your social media channels – please check our code of conduct for more information.
This is a no recruiters event, so other than the companies exhibiting you should not be approached by any recruitment agencies. Please let us know if you are by telling us on the HBB or the Women’s Tech Hub stands – for more details please check our recruiters page.
We’re busy setting up the workshop agenda and will post details as we put it together.
We are aware that Bristol doesn’t have a major tech recruitment fair and want to fix that. Bristol is fast growing and we have plenty of people wanting to get into the industry. While we want to support all companies wanting to recruit ‘ready mades‘, we are also aware that there is a vast amount of talent out here ready to step in and move into Tech. This Careers fair is to cover all of this. We want to talk inclusion, diversity and training along with recruitment and believe that Bristol is ready to embrace that. The fair is open to everyone, regardless of ethnicity, age, social background or anything else. It’s free for anyone who is simply ‘tech-curious’ wanting to understand the jobs, opportunities and training out there as we feel it should be all inclusive. We also want to support the tech savvy wanting to talk to great companies about moving up, across or simply have a change. We’ll be setting up a joining page and advertising the talks and companies looking to hire shortly…
