500 jobs are up for grabs with hottest London technology start-ups this Sunday at the Silicon Milkroundabout Job Fair.
The event, which is organized by London-based start-up Songkick, is the second to take place, and the only employment fair for the London tech start-up community.
Silicon roundabout, which earned the name because of its active start-up scene centered around Shoreditch’s Old Street roundabout, is inviting graduates seeking first position as well as more experienced creatives looking for a change in their career.
A wide spectrum of technology companies, from smaller start-ups to already established names such as Mind Candy, GroupSpaces and Skimlinks, will be represented in the event.
Those participating will get a chance to have a one-to-one chat with recruiting companies and find out more about the existing opportunities.
Junior and senior jobs for developers, software engineers, system administrators, quality assurance specialists and more will be on offer with salaries as high as £100,000 up for grabs.
Due to a high demand, Silicon Milkroundabout has announced a final phase of ticketing for the 30 October event. Those wishing to participate should go to http://www.siliconmilkroundabout.com/ and register to attend as soon as possible.
Attendees will be provided snackboxes from Graze, which is one of the creative start-ups looking for employees.
Sheryl Seitz, a representative of Songkick, told Eastlondonlines: “Hires from the last event have said that they are given as much responsibility and opportunity to contribute as other software engineers in more senior positions at bigger companies.”
“Silicon Milkroundabout is the recruitment fair for people who desire to avoid more conventional graduate schemes,” she added.
Hung Lee from BraveNewTalent, a Careers Social Network that connects users directly with employers they want to work for, said the company is “delighted to support“ the event.
“MilkRoundAbout provides an unparalleled opportunity for young people to engage with some of the most exciting start up companies in the UK,” he said.
“If you want to be plunged into the deep end, and work with some of the top open source developers in the country, you won’t find a better environment to sharpen your skills, produce great code and influence a game changing product.”
