We're a proud partner of Manchester Digital, a community and platform representing Greater Manchester’s tech and digital sector. This year, their Digital Skills Festival is back and better than ever!

Kate Wilson, their Partnership Manager, gives us the inside scoop about the events taking place and explains exactly why you should attend!

As always the rich MD community will be exhibiting, are there any desks we should definitely not miss out on?

My advice would be to register for the event and then you’ll receive a selection of the jobs that will be live and promoted on the day in advance  - that way you can plan your visit, research the businesses you're interested in and head straight to their stand to discuss opportunities. Of course The Candidate can offer great advice across the entire market! I know there will be some exciting roles across software development, digital marketing, engineering and data science. It's amazing that Manchester and its surrounding area is home to so many amazing digital and tech businesses  - in fact there is no reason why you can’t have an extraordinary career in this region without ever leaving!


Anything else to add?

There is a great opportunity for employers who are curious about taking Digital apprentices to join a discussion on Tuesday 8th  - they can register here.  So if you are committed to future proofing our region’s pipeline of talent - please come along!

PLUS don’t miss out on some professional development opportunities. If you’re interested in learning and upskilling - why not join one of our sessions. You can try your hand at performing “User Story Mapping” or get involved with designing using AutoCad. There is also a session on how to find the perfect technical candidates and retain them. Make sure you get signed up - full details of the sessions can be found here.

We’d love you to get involved with our event and learn and develop from the wealth of experience and knowledge our amazing digital and tech community can offer. If you have any questions you can get in touch with me directly [email protected]

See you there, Kate.


Thank you so much Kate! You'll find The Candidate exhibiting at the Talent Day event on the 9th of February! (Follow our Instagram for BTS updates on the day and other fun team content!)
