Welcome Aboard

Welcome banner

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 info@tech3shed.org – or to speak to Women’s Tech Hub directly info@wthub.org.
