Go local, grow better – Are you missing out on Leeds talent?

28th Sep 2022 4:30pm - 6:30pm Hosted by Aire Logic Ltd

A networking and interactive session to inspire deeper connections to the diversity of Leeds.

Leeds is a thriving, culturally rich and diverse city, with lots of potential talent waiting to be tapped into. Yet despite vacancies being at a record high, employers are still struggling to recruit high quality candidates and build diversity within their teams.

In this interactive session, with refreshments and nibbles, Aire Logic and Generation will discuss how nurturing local talent will grow your business in an economical and sustainable way – all while helping you to make a city-wide social impact by connecting diverse communities to Leeds’ fast growing tech sector.

What to expect to get out of the event:

Uncover inspiring new ways to build a great organisational culture, widen access to tech jobs, close the digital divide, and boost employment and skills across Leeds. Connect to the right people and replicate the diversity of Leeds within your own organisation.

Join us and like-minded organisations to network, share experiences of ‘going local’ to meet skills demand, and hear from Generation bootcamp graduates about their amazing experiences to date.

If you are a start-up looking to grow, you’re new to Leeds and looking to connect more to our city, or simply want to build more diversity into your teams, this session is for you.

 

Aire Logic is an innovative Health & Care IT Consultancy dedicated to improving the delivery of care, from the clinical staff experience to measurable patient outcomes. Through our unique suite of health technology products, our services range from enterprise architecture and strategic consultancy to creating high-impact low-code software solutions. Our low code platform based approach puts clinicians at the heart of innovation enabling solutions to be built and delivered in days. We will be bringing fun, engaging, and thought-provoking talks and events to Leeds Digital Festival, that cover a variety of subjects, including our work and collaboration within the ever-growing health tech industry in Leeds.

Our program creates real business value for employers and lasting career impact for participants. To date Generation has place 61,808 graduates in 187 cities in 16 countries across the world and that number continues to rise everyday.
