Atom bank, the bank built exclusively for smartphone and tablet, has partnered with Tech Talent 2018 to take advantage of expertise in the region as it expands its technology team.
Tech Talent will host its third event at the Crowne Plaza in Newcastle on Thursday 24th May and will bring together businesses and jobseekers from across the digital sector.
The Durham-based bank is committed to creating opportunities in technology, in order to enhance its capabilities for the future.
Rana Bhattarchya, Atom bank’s chief technology officer said: “Enhancing our digital capabilities remains a priority for Atom and is central to our business model. This investment in technology and innovation will make our business more efficient and agile, resulting in a better experience for our customers.
“We are expanding our technology team and have a wide range of roles available. Atom has a brilliant culture and we are eager to take advantage of the talent on our doorstep. We bring lots of opportunity to the North East and we are committed to driving positive change in the region.”
More than 1,000 graduates and professionals are expected to attend on the day, along with around 70 of the region’s leading employers.
Jill McKinney, head of skills and training at Sunderland Software City, said: “Atom bank is a brilliant example of a disruptor that has made the North East its home. People who are looking for exciting career options – whether that’s young people or more experienced professionals - no longer need to move out of the region to find them.
“With Tech Talent 2018 we want to showcase the growing North East tech sector and the opportunities this brings. Whether you’re a software developer, or want to work in non-technical roles but for a tech company, Tech Talent can help you find a job you love. We’re really pleased to be partnering with Atom bank as part of their recruitment drive and look forward to introducing them to 100s of talented individuals on 24th May.”
