150 startups = 500 tech jobs = up for grabs = this Sunday!!

When our friends over at Adzuna highlighted this Sunday’s Startups Jobs fair SiliconMilkRoundabout coming up Shoreditch, London, we felt it only appropriate to highlight this exciting recruitment drive to our TheEmployable following. If your not a ‘techno-wotsit’ then one of your friends probably is! Spread the word, and I hope this works out well for as many of you as possible!!

‘Silicon Roundabout’ is fast becoming ‘the major hub’ for startup and established media agencies and tech
 firms with a digital edge, in an area encompassing Shoreditch, Hoxton and particularly Old Street. Therefore this weekends Startup careers fair, where 500 tech jobs will be up for grabs, might give a recent Grad or an experienced Tech the start or change they currently need…. Good luck….

Adzuna have gathered some start up and technology employment data below that might be of interest and check out their cool infographic to the right too…..
