Rather than us shout about how amazing our Tech Talent annual event is (which it really is), I thought it would be even better hearing from someone who came along last year.

Meet Nate. This is his story... 

"Last year I attended Tech Talent to find out what jobs were available within the tech sector in the North East. At first, I was a little unsure if it was for me; I am a design thinker/service designer and as you would expect most of the roles were for software developers, testers and product owners. However, I saw one company advertising a role for an  "Industrial Designer"  and after a discussion (maybe a rant!) about all things design, agile and tech I was invited to interview.

Flash forward almost a year and I am now the Design Strategist, a new role within the company. It has been an incredible experience so far. From the first 6 months defining what my role is within the business to working on fascinating projects, such as the  Transport For London Roadlab  programme, to speaking at local events such as the first Build IT Right conference.

This year I’ll be returning to Tech Talent on the other side, looking for the next success story!

Be sure to visit the Grid stand and find out more"

There you have it! Tech Talent isn't just for 'techies', and it just goes to show that attending really can lead to amazing opportunities!

Join us this year at Tech Talent 2019 on Wed 22nd May between 2-7pm at The Boiler Shop, Newcastle and start your next adventure
