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.

Digital Marketing Recruitment Guide Digital Agency Showcase


It didn’t take long to build rapport with Laura, as her excellent communication skills shone through from the start. She placed me in my most recent position and was very thorough in liaising between myself and my prospective employer at the time - an often understated skill. Moving to a new city for the position at short notice was not going to be easy, but Laura made sure I was as informed and prepped as possible when going through the interview stages and seemed to always have my best interests at heart. One of the most personable recruiters I have worked with, and I will certainly be calling her first when I am considering changing position again!
