As part of International Women’s Day and our ongoing commitment to promoting ‘Women In Tech’ Laudale has partnered with Greater Manchester Business Week to produce a list of 30 women contributing to and representing the tech sector in Greater Manchester.
Laudale Managing Director Alec Laurie shares his view:
With the fourth largest tech cluster in the UK and over 168,000 tech workers already in the city, it’s not a surprise to see the popularity and availability of tech roles rising but with 1.4 vacancies for every 1 tech employee in Manchester the need to attract more talent is still very real.
In the first of our ‘In Conversation’ with series, we spoke to Salford Royal Head of Digital, Rachel Dunscombe about the digital skills required for the workforce of the future and how the NHS is working with education and the business community to enable skills development in the North.
Has the Northern Powerhouse ran out of steam? in Horizon Innovation’s latest CIO podcast, Laudale Director Alec Laurie joins MIDAS’ Tim Newns and Horizon Editor Mark Chillingworth to discuss.
