This event runs from 5pm - 7pm.

Recruitment remains the number one challenge facing London's booming tech sector.

Repeated surveys have found the problem has reached chronic levels and uncertainty over Brexit is only set to make it worse with 13 per cent of posts currently filled by international workers.

The skills shortage has seen salaries spiral with over a third of digital tech businesses reporting that candidates are wanting more money than they can afford to pay.

BusinessCloud has joined forces with Oscar Technology for 'The Tech Recruitment Timebomb' to look at the problem and what can be done to tackle it.
