why you should be interested
in a career in tech

What comes to mind when you think about working in “Tech” or “Digital”? Is it complex math formulas, or basement rooms filled with tables of people sat staring at screens? Today’s Tech is not like that. In fact, many Tech companies have amazing spaces, designed to promote collaboration and innovation.

Now, what if you learned that as well as having great spaces to work, many roles don’t require people who are good at maths or coding — that you could actually be a writer, designer, project manager – or many other roles that suit different personalities and working arrangements. Most of these roles do not require a degree.

Businesses are looking to hire diverse teams but report a lack of diversity among applicants. The average advertised digital tech salary is £50,663 -- 44% higher than non-digital salaries. The industry is looking for people who demonstrate enthusiasm, curiosity, teamwork and great communication skills.

If that sounds like you, why not come along to our Taster Workshops to find out more about what it’s really like to work in Tech.

“Tech companies control almost every facet of daily life, from how we communicate to the ways in which we travel and, even, how we buy our groceries… Diversity isn't just important for the tech itself—it's important for the people who make and use technology.”
