Opening doors for digital career opportunities - Digital City Norwich 15th -17th Feb 2016

Lynsey Sweales, SocialB

A career in the digital industry might sound exciting but what skills do students need and what opportunities are there in Norwich?  Kieran Miles, a local entrepreneur came up with the idea of a digital city walk which takes place next week.

This great concept will give students, parents and teachers the opportunity to step inside the doors of digital businesses in Norwich and show them face to face what skills and opportunities there are locally.

Digital is a growing industry in Norwich and as a Tech Nation cluster city there are over 14,500 people employed in this growing sector.  However, although the digital sector may be growing one of the biggest problems Norwich businesses have is recruitment. Recruiting people with the right set of skills is difficult which is why businesses are keen to start conversations with students to share with them the careers and opportunities they have on their doorstep.

As a career path, digital businesses in Norwich are keen to showcase the local career opportunities, educate and help students from schools, colleges and university.  It's easy for students to think they need to head to London for a great career in digital but we have lots of businesses in Norwich doing great things, including large-scale national and international projects.
