This consortium is made up of leading businesses operating in the North West: ANS, Arup, Barclays, BAE Systems, CloudCo Solutions, GCHQ, ITV, Microsoft, Natwest, PwC UK, Siemens, TalkTalk, UA92 and the University of Salford. Their aspiration is that by collaborating together, they can make progress on a greater scale than if done individually to attract a more diverse workforce into technology roles, which is critical to ensuring success at the scale and pace needed to support the region in fulfilling its potential for growth.

To increase the size and diversity of technology talent in the region, the NWTT group of businesses will focus their efforts on two areas: outreach to young people through education, and improving the skills of tech returners and those looking to re-skill in a new profession.

For those who have already begun their career, the group will be focusing on how to support people who are interested in returning to a career in tech, and those looking to reskill after working in a non-tech background.
