SPARK Skills Fest is an annual recruitment event dedicated to the South West tech cluster.

The largest of its kind, the day-long event at Bristol’s the Watershed in 2016, attracted hundreds of students, graduates and experienced developers, as well as over 40 local tech and digital companies with 200+ job vacancies.

“The SPARK Skills Fest was by far the best networking and hiring event I have been to in the past few years”

 

As well as gathering large and small technology businesses in one place and showcasing the latest job opportunities to students, graduates and developers from across the South West, the event also gives prospective employees the chance to get hands-on with the amazing tech being produced in the West of England, including VR, robotics and gaming.

Ashton Clapp, attendee and University of Bath graduate, said: “The SPARK Skills Fest was by far the best networking and hiring event I have been to in the past few years. The local companies there offered an abundance of opportunities to students looking to work with cutting-edge technology.”
