Talent Fest 2021

A 5 day festival of jobs and skills for the digital, creative & tech sector. powered by Wired Sussex in Brighton: 15 - 19 Nov 2021

What is this about?

A five-day event from the 15th to the 19th November to boost our region’s thriving digital industry; helping businesses hire, nurture and keep the most talented people – the people we need, to grow and deliver great work.

Now that we are emerging from a year of lockdown and uncertainty, it’s time to start planning the future for digital businesses. How can we best connect jobseekers, graduates, career switchers and returners to work, from diverse backgrounds and outside of our Brighton bubble with rewarding, fulfilling work?

Our event has an excellent track record of bringing jobseekers, tech and creative companies, sharing knowledge and inspiring others to get into the digital sector. 

What has happened so far?

Now in its 5th consecutive year, Talent Fest has a different format this year with panels, talks and workshops, some online and some in-person events including:

  • The Digital Leadership Forum, with 5 digital leaders talking about how to lead in a post-Covid, post-Brexit world.
  • The Diversity Forum, with 5 digital leaders sharing their experiences and challenges around diversity.
  • Presentation skills and public speaking workshops
  • The Games Jobs Live event and Into Games Breakfast Session
  • Codebar Brighton special event for Talent Fest 

Join us between the 15th-19th November, more events TBC
