Interested in a career in digital?

As part of Digital Ilkley we will be presenting a Digital Careers Fair aimed at years 11,12 and 13 from local secondary schools. The highlight of the event being Mark Wright the winner of The Apprentice 2014, giving some expert advice.

The Careers Fair will include a range of experienced people from many indusrties highlighting some of the benefits and challenges of working in their field. They will explain some of the difficulties and future technologies to make the whole event a worthwhile and interactive day.

The Careers Fair will be part presentation, part panels and part debate to allow students the best opportunity to learn about a range of issues they might consider when considering career options. The event is supported by all Career advisers in the relevant schools and we hope will help provide a range of different options to consider, even if its only to discount them.
