Pathways into

30.10.23 | 8:30AM - 5:30PM

It’s a core belief of MTF that every resident across all ten boroughs of Greater Manchester deserves the opportunity to work in the region’s vibrant technology sector.

We’ve specifically curated an informative, accessible and useful programme of talks and panel discussions aimed at all those who wish to explore the possibility of a career in tech. For example, folks who might find this useful are college students, university students, ex-Military personnel, people returning to a career in tech, folks coming back from maternity leave who may want a change in career. This day is open to all those interested in working in tech!
