Talentful on a mission to bring London-based tech candidates to the North-West

Chris Abbass and Liam Waite

Last year, 10,200 people made the move from London to Manchester, with many making the move back to the region after leaving the North-West for the capital.

Talentful, the team building specialists for the world’s biggest tech brands, is committed to increasing this number even further by showcasing some of the North-West’s best tech companies at an exclusive event in the capital next month to attract the top London-based jobseekers to the region.

Manchester is now the UK’s biggest tech hub outside of London – the digital tech turnover in the city climbing by 4% to £3.2bn last year, with over 70,000 digital jobs, and the event in Shoreditch, London will raise awareness of tech opportunities in Manchester to the best London-based candidates.

The event, hosted by Talentful’s Director of Manchester, Liam Waite, on 13 June, will also provide further information about what makes the North-West such a brilliant place to live and work.

This event is part of a commitment by Talentful to facilitate the continued growth of the technology sector in Manchester, which also includes recently partnering with Code Nation. Code Nation are on a mission to enable individuals from all walks of life to thrive in Industry 4.0, as well as to solve the ever-growing digital skills shortage in the UK, and Talentful are delighted to be supporting Code Nation in the mission.

Liam Waite, Talentful Director of Manchester, said: “I was born and bred in Manchester but, like a lot of people, moved to London to begin my career after university. I have recently returned to Manchester and haven’t looked back! At Talentful, we have immersed ourselves in the thriving tech community here in order to continue the growth of the region.

Now, we’re really excited to be promoting working and living in Manchester directly to the most talented London-based tech candidates, some who may be looking for a move back to the region and some who would be experiencing the North-West for the first time.”
