Digital Gurus North – the first three months
- last updated 6 Dec 2016
Back in September, we opened our Manchester office. The aim was simple; to help brands across the northern region address their digital skills battles by bringing in awesome candidates and advising them on investing in existing talent.
“The first three months have been busier than ever”, says our inspiring head of Digital Gurus North, Toni Phoenix. “We moved into a new office, welcomed 11 Gurus into our growing team and are partnering with some of the most exciting businesses in the North.”
“We’ve been active in the region – mainly by kicking off our #DigitalNorth event series; the maiden event was a cracking show with stellar talks from Amaze, Dentsui Aegis, JD Williams and BJSS and we’ve just held a second event in Leeds too.”
“But we don't want to stop there; I want more Gurus to join one of the most exciting and fulfilling recruitment projects in the North - so if you know someone who wants the challenge, drop me a line.”
