Event of the Week: Digital Skills Festival 2015

Manchester Digital Skills Festival

All marketing enthusiasts listen up! Get the 10th - 13th February 2015 down in your diaries; the UK's largest digital careers festival is taking place in Manchester! 

In the digital sector we are faced with one big problem… We have a huge digital skills shortage! That is where the Digital Skills Festival comes in; to highlight, address and discuss the issues and problems that the digital sector is facing and help businesses find the talent they need in order to grow.

The Digital Skills Festival is a 4 day event that is primarily targeted at students but I'd advise everyone interested in a career in the digital industry to go and brush up on your skills, find out the latest industry news and network with some of the UK's most exciting businesses.

Advice for students: Have a look at which companies will be attending the event, take you're CV and put yourself out there! You could secure some work experience or a placement; invaluable experience that will make you the candidate everyone wants when it comes to applying for jobs!

So don't miss the Digital Skills Festival! Whether you're an employer going to discover the brightest new digital talent or you're a student exploring what job opportunities are on offer post-graduation.

I couldn't recommend Stevie and also Jack at the candidate enough during the process of acquiring my new position. His friendly, relaxed, but very professional approach really helped in preparing for the interview process and put any nerves I had to bed. I really appreciated the regular updates of progression from start to finish and never felt out of the loop or in the dark. I would definitely approach Stevie again if I seek further employment he and The Candidate provide an excellent service.
