spark-skills-festival-_87540079_mediumWouldn’t it be great if at the start of planning your future career you could meet up and have a chat with potential employers to get a feel for the type of work they are offering and to see whether it is for you? Or to get your hands on and play with the brand new tech and digital creations they are developing that you could be involved with making or improving in the future? We here at TechSPARK think so, and that’s why this December we are looking to bring together people looking to start a career in digital tech with some of the biggest tech names in the Bristol and Bath region in what will be the area’s biggest student and graduate recruitment event – The SPARK Skills Festival.

Connecting talent to tech jobs

With JUST EAT and Actual Experience already signed up, this is the place to be to get the lowdown on the tech and creative jobs out there right now, and to show off your own tech and creative skills.
