Employer Afternoon

Employer Afternoon

Meet the _nologists

Our goal at _nology is to diversify and grow the tech talent pool. While teaching our _nologists the skills they need to find their first tech role in their dream sector is our primary objective, we’re really set up to do one thing: help companies hire the new generation of Developers.

Employer Afternoon

Come and meet our next cohort of tech grads ready for employment at the Bristol Employer Afternoon event, 5th December. 


Why a _nologist?

Our full-time 12-week software conversion course teaches fundamental front to back end web development skills in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, with an eye towards commercial understanding and broader soft skills such as interpersonal effectiveness, communication and management.

Our students are selected from hundreds of applicants to the small cohort of _nologists we train and support into employment. Our _Employer Afternoon is your chance to meet them and hire industry-ready Developers. Join us on December 5th in Bristol and meet your new team!

What can I expect from the Employer Afternoon on the 5th December?

Our Employer Afternoon offers a holistic approach to tech talent recruitment. Fix your own skills gap and hire from a unique and diverse talent pool of candidates. At the event, you will meet and converse with the _nologists showcasing the projects they’ve worked on for the past 3 months. A relaxed format over the afternoon provides plenty of opportunities for one-on-one conversations with candidates to discuss their training, experience and achievements.


"The hiring day gives us a chance to meet the real person, to walk into their working environment and see what they were working on and passionate about. That meant that when we asked someone for an interview we were able to probe deeper into their ambitions and find out whether they really suited our company. We felt more confident about our hire as a result. If we could hire every employee using that model, essentially visiting them in their previous workplace, we would.'

Ben Westlake (Head of Technology at Optimum Credit Ltd.)
