In recently conducted research by the Alliance Manchester Business School and Tech Returners, we found the average tech vacancy costs a business £9,000 and that 92% of businesses struggle to find Tech Talent, more specifically 24% of UK businesses struggle to fill software development roles.
Since 2017 we've enabled 29 careers in technology, 26 of them women into technology careers with businesses including AutoTrader , ANS Group, Lloyds Banking Group, MAG O and the BBC, but we want to do more, so much more!
That's why we're committing to funding 50% of places for the next three cohorts of our Your Journey Into Tech programme, this means the next 48 returners through our doors will already be halfway towards their tech career, we're turning our usual commercial model on its' head whereby businesses support 100% of the cost of a returner (learn more about the model here)
but we still need the support of like-minded businesses to sponsor places on the programme and help us to complete the other 50% of the returner journey.
Our Your Journey Into Tech programme provides real returners to the technology industry with the tools to access a career in software development and hit the ground running with our partner businesses.
By sponsoring you'll have the opportunity to get involved with the cohort, present your company to our returners, offer mentoring, work shadowing and other opportunities that allow our cohort of returners to experience your business and culture.
You'll be making a valuable contribution towards closing the skills gap in technology and helping to grow a diverse talent pool for the future.
And let's not forget that average £9k price tag on a tech vacancy. Sponsorship for Your Journey Into Tech is £1,500 per place.
