Event Description

Are you part of the Great Resignation? Looking to Re-train in tech?

Join us and our special guests to learn about the UK opportunities and how far you can go if you start your journey now.

To celebrate the launch of our first guide on how to re-train in tech, we have invited special guests for an evening of learning, connecting and unlocking career opportunities.


Part 1: Do you know about the UK opportunities for tech talent?

George Windsor from Tech Nation will take us through the People and Skills Report from 2022. Heโ€™ll be sharing key stats and where the opportunity is today and tomorrow. To learn more about him and Tech Nation, scroll down.

Part 2: Ask the CTO - Meet Manuel Martinez, Founder & CTO @ Privasee

This is an opportunity to learn about the career trajectory of a CTO and ask all of your questions about what profiles they look for, or what to focus on when starting a career in tech. Is it skills? Is it the way you approach opportunities? Join us and ask him there.

Part 3: Meet the panel of career changers - Ironhack Alumni Network

To finish the session, weโ€™re inviting a panel of career-changers who have taken the jump and are now working in tech. A variety of backgrounds with one thing in common; going through the transformational experience and transitioning to where they are today. Weโ€™ll hear about them and ask any questions. This panel will be moderated by Brett Shanley from Knoma!

Networking, music and drinks

A chance to meet others in similar journeys and interests. Have a drink, and connect with fellow attendees, speakers and some of our partners attending the event.
