We’re on the hunt for technical talent to help us with the Techies in Residence Programme – an innovative new project to build links between the community sector and Northern Ireland’s knowledge economy.
Digital Technology holds massive potential to solve problems in the voluntary and community sector (VCSE). Over the last 3 months we have recruited 6 innovation projects from the sector and we are now seeking to match them with high-quality technical staff from Northern Irish companies.
The project will take the form of a 10-week residency (Sept – Nov), where staff from NI tech companies will embed themselves in the VCSE organisation. The aim is to build a prototype solution in answer to one of the briefs outlined here.
A salary contribution of up to £6,000 is available to help offset your costs over the 10 weeks. In addition, each participating company will gain extensive exposure through the project and will, subject to agreement, be entitled to develop the solution commercially after the residency. It’s also a significant opportunity to gain insight into a new marketplace, help meet CSR objectives and support the development of future managerial talent.
Our aim is to match interested companies with briefs that are relevant to their expertise and interests. We’d invite you to browse through the attached briefs and if you think that your organisation has the talent to help out with one or more, please get in touch via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can follow up with more detail.
