Workshop Wednesday kicks off its new term

women learning

Our members and our collaboration with CodeHub has had loads going on behind the scenes with some very great free training options being offered up. So if you are interested in getting into tech, pop along and try it out for free before deciding or committing on your future options in a friendly and helpful pain-free way.

Women’s Tech Hub products

We have a new Candidates page and will advertise the skillsets of the women we have looking for roles in the area (and some of our male allies). Please speak to us if you are interested in any of them – and if you are looking for a job in the area then please let us know and we can try and help you – mail us on info@wthub.org

We have a Jobs Board for those wanting to advertise specifically to our members in the area – check it out here. If you are interested in one of the roles then please contact us and we can help you consider if its a job that will suit you and make an introduction.

If you want to engage with our members, advertise your companies and share any jobs then you can support us by sponsoring the workshop wednesdays – details here.

Careers Support

Free Three Fridays

Women: we moved our Free Free Fridays to be much more Career support based, helping, as much as we could support those members of ours who were looking to move, return or change careers. Through this, we have managed to see many of our members get great new jobs and/or careers.

To extend this we now include a Jobsboard and also a candidate page so we can offer up our members to companies looking for diverse candidates.

Workshops

We Started our Workshop Wednesdays to host Workshops and peer to peer-supported learning and added an option to sponsor them and engage /run workshops. We have also partnered with our great Pals at Codehub bristol which mixes it up a bit – We’d like to say a massive thanks to both Desklodge and our supportive members for running the workshops. Our sponsors to date:
