Careers Skills and Training

19 November 2019 | Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes

Skills shortages in key areas of the digital economy mean there are many different IT careers available for graduates with relevant qualifications and experience. The sector is fast-moving and dynamic, meaning there are many smaller companies and tech start-ups that are worth seeking out for job opportunities. For example, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the IT industry provide a range of specialist services and often offer consultancy and technical roles. Careers Skills and Training will act as a platform for you to meet and engage with companies looking to recruit Tech graduates and professionals.

BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT published a report for digital leaders in 2018 which looked at the capabilities, skills and ethics needed in IT organisations in the near-future. It showed that business transformation and organisational change were top priorities and roles in change management, transformation consultancy and business analysis would be on the increase. The specific skills identified by these organisations included some that would be fully expected - cybersecurity and cloud for example - through to emerging sectors - such as the 'as-a-service' model. Careers Skills and Training is co-located at TechConnect Live, which takes places on the 19th November 2019 at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes.
