The government-funded Train4Tomorrow programme is running a Digital Jobs Fair on Wednesday 16 March 2022, to connect employers with local adults who have recently completed a digital bootcamp to gain in-demand skills.
The South West is facing a skills shortage. The rapid growth of the digital sector has led to businesses struggling to find the skilled people they need to meet their demand, and businesses across the region are facing recruitment challenges. The Train4Tomorrow programme aims to tackle the skills crisis by offering adults access to fully-funded training in in-demand areas.
The latest cohort of Train4Tomorrow bootcamps are now concluding, and an online jobs fair is being held on Wednesday 16 March from 9am to 1pm, to connect local employers with the highly-skilled talent completing the bootcamps.
The free-to-attend jobs fair will give employers the opportunity to talk to the 250 learners who have been invited. The learners have invested in their skills and successfully completed an intensive 12-16 week bootcamp in areas including cyber, IT, programming, app development, digital marketing, and agile project management.
Local employers are invited to have their own virtual table at the fair, where they can showcase their business, promote vacancies, and meet with potential candidates. There will also be opportunities to hear from inspiring keynote speakers within the tech industry and beyond.
