Talent 2017

March 15th – 17th 2017

Talent 2017 is a new initiative from Wired Sussex designed to help digital businesses attract, retain and train talent they need to grow their business

It will be the South East’s largest digital jobs and skills festival

Digital businesses know that their success is down to attracting, training and retaining talented individuals. Finding the right people with the right skills and helping them to grow with your business is usually the single biggest challenge that you face.

That’s why Wired Sussex has created Talent 2017 – a three-day festival of jobs and skills for the digital sector.

Talent 2017 will take place in Brighton over 3 days:

  • 15th March – The Digital, Media & Tech Jobs Fair – Showcasing the best job opportunities and companies in the digital, media and tech sector in Sussex to over 1,000 attendees.
  • 16th March – The Skills Summit – A one-day conference to discuss the skills challenges for our sector and how we start to solve them. Sharing best business practices, and a look at how universities, colleges and apprenticeship programmes might help.
  • 17th March – Experience Day – A range of events that will provide an opportunity for students and young people to gain insight and experience into what it’s like to work in the digital industry
