Tech Hiring Challenges in 2024 - Strategies for Success

Tech hiring is a challenging field - and the challenges keep on growing. In 2024, many teams must do more with less - whether because of budget cuts, restructurings, or the continued struggle to find highly skilled or niche talent for specialised roles. Not to mention many other hiring challenges in the mix!

At the Digital Skills Agency, we’ve been addressing these challenges with a high success rate, and this Techweek we’ll be sharing our stories with you. Join us for a lunchtime discussion to hear some of our recent real-world challenges and what strategies worked for us. We’ll share tips and discuss insights on how you can apply these to your own hiring challenges, and we’ll cheer you on!

Don’t miss this opportunity to improve your own hiring success. Register now to secure your spot with us.
