Last weekend StartEDIN travelled to London to exhibit at Silicon Milkroundabout #SMR10

Last weekend StartEDIN travelled to London to exhibit at the top tech recruitment fair Silicon Milkroundabout #SMR10.

Together with Talent Scotland and alongside Edinburgh tech companies Craneware, FanDuel and Skyscanner, we promoted the Edinburgh Tech Scene and searched for talented individuals open to relocating to the beautiful city of Edinburgh for their next career move

The Saturday was aimed at attracting individuals interested in product marketing and design. Our team spoke to hundreds of brilliant people, from those with years of experience in the industry to graduates exploring their career options as they complete their studies.

Sunday was dedicated to all things engineering. The number of exhibiters maxed out the venue and the number of attendees tripled driving a constant flow of individuals to our stand, interested in what StartEDIN was all about and the abundance of opportunities we had on offer. They left the stand intrigued and curious about how they could potentially be living and working if they were to take the leap up to Edinburgh.

We also had dozens of entrants into our prize draw to win a weekend stay in Edinburgh for two. We definitely had the best prize on offer…a weekend stay in Edinburgh? ...come on!

Our team also educated some individuals that were from Edinburgh that had either travelled down for the event or had left some time ago to pursue a career in London, on what exactly they were missing out on! We received some CVs from people wishing to return and gratitude from people that were considering a move elsewhere!

Overall, we spoke to hundreds of people and exhausted our wee Scottish voices but it was all very exciting and interesting meeting the talented people and tech enthusiasts that flocked to our stand.

We are currently still following up on the contacts we made at the event and would like to say again how much we enjoyed meeting you all! Please do get in touch if you need any help in the future!

We would also like to say a big thank you to the Silicon Milkroundabout Team for hosting a fantastic event, looking after our team and creating such a great event platform for talented individuals and businesses!
