Tech-Startup Job Fair Silicon Milkroundabout returns

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

One of the biggest struggles for Tech Startups is finding the talent and skill sets needed to strengthen and grow their existing teams. Whilst the recession still means that ‘generalist’ candidates are unfortunately pretty much ten-a-penny, the IT sector doesn’t have it so easy, and often still struggles to find suitably qualified and experienced IT employees.

Trying to remedy that is Silicon Milkroundabout (incidentally a Startup itself) the Job Fair that looks to match the IT qualified Job Seeker to the UK IT startup scene and more specifically (bearing in silicon milkroundaboutmind the name) the Startups that are based in and around the Silicon Roundabout / Shoreditch area in London.

The most recent fair, Silicon Milkroundabout 5.0 returns this weekend coming (11th and 12th May) and takes place at The Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch.

With the promise of over 120 startups hiring for hundreds of positions over the weekend, it’s an attractive proposition for all you techie types in and around the London area who might be interested in working for a Tech startup. If you want to get involved in the startup scene but don’t want to found a company yourself, this might be a good option - go work for a startup that already exists or is just setting up.

The 2 day event will see an incredible variety of teams, products, industries and technologies getting involved. ‘Product Saturday’ focuses on Product Management, Web Design, UX Design, Analytics and Growth Hacking roles, whilst ‘Engineering Sunday’ looks to match up the Software Engineers, Web Developers, QA/Testing, and Tech Ops candidates to current jobs and projects.

Check out the Silicon Milkroundabout Website for more details and good luck to any of you who go, whether you’re a startup or someone looking for a job opp.
