Are you looking for data science & AI talent?
You’re invited to meet data science students at all levels (Undergraduates, Masters and PhDs) with the opportunity to pitch why your company is somewhere they’d want to work.
Our aim is to bring together a new generation of data scientists with the leaders in industry who want to employ them.
Why DISCUS – what can we do for you?
DISCUS at the University of Sussex is working with Silicon Brighton to bring together data science students, researchers, leaders from industry and senior academics to shape the future of data science & AI in both industry and academia.
We co-organise the Sussex Data Science Meetup, which has a membership of ~500. We’re interested in working with you to fill the UK’s digital & data science skills gap while also showcasing our extraordinary students.
How the event will run
We’ll kick off promptly at 7.30pm, giving each organisation 2 minutes (you can also share 1 slide) to pitch to an audience of approx 100-150 students. (There’ll be an option when you book tickets if you want to give a pitch or not).
From 8.30pm onwards we’ll open up the floor for networking with drinks and canapes. Because we know networking events can be intimidating for some, we’ll also operate a matching service where we’ll make introductions by email after the event.
In the future …
This is our 3rd event, following our highly successful events back in July and November: follow us or join our mailing list for updates on future events! Expect snappy showcases, more pithy pitching opportunities and space for community-led collaboration.
