Tech is a field that requires constant education.

There’s always something new to learn, and if you take a break from your career it can be a challenge to catch up. That’s where Tech Returners comes in.

Tech Returners provides resources, development tools, and creates fresh opportunities for people returning/entering tech after a career break.  The Talent Skills gap in tech is top of the Northern Powerhouse’s agenda . This has placed a focus on untapping a talent pool of those returning to the sector.

Tech Returners provide support in four key areas:

Discover – Helping returners to understand their skillset, and identify relevant development areas

Develop – Engaging returners with resources, tools, and courses to enable further learning

Network – Connecting returners with an active support network

Career – Providing flexible, exciting career opportunities

There is currently no data that analyses the impact of career breaks on female returners and the economic impact of this talent pool. Tech Returners, with the help of Manchester Business School are aiming to close this data gap.  They are looking to survey up to 1000 respondents consisting of UK women in tech and UK based employers recruiting tech roles.

Can you spare five minutes of your time to complete the survey?  There are two survey’s, one for women currently working in tech and one for employers.  See links below and help Tech Returners and Manchester Business School to discover insights to drive change in the industry.
