If you know a school student or University student that’s interested in a career in data then Monday’s workshop, a collaboration between ADLIB, Engine Shed and University of Bristol could be for them.
With opportunities to hear from speakers about pathways and journeys into work, what a career in data entails and how you might access such a career, the workshop is set to offer valuable insights. There will also be a Q&A where students can ask questions to representatives from the industry.
In addition to this, there will be a chance to take part in a hands-on workshop with SETsquared - an organisation working in the field.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about:
The data professionals' main responsibilities
What a 'typical day' entails for them as a professional working in data
The professional background of the speakers and the career journeys that have lead them to this point
What they like most about their jobs and how it goes 'beyond' data
Their take on top 3 skills it takes to become a successful professional within their fields
Any soft skills that are advantageous to the paths they have taken.

Helen Tanner - Data, AI, Blockchain specialist at Data Cubed Ltd
Daniel Keast - Analytics Enablement Manager, Bank of Ireland
Rob Griffith - Artificial Intelligence Consultant, BJSS
Ni Zhu - Technology Consultant, BJSS
Brittany Harris - Co-Founder, Qflow
