Ever considered a career in tech? This is your chance to explore your options as you puzzle your way out of one of the city’s best escape games…

This November, we’re taking over The Great Escape Room to prove that you have what it takes to make it in the tech industry. Over the course of one night, we’ll show you why it’s such a great sector to work in and how you can get your foot in the door, with a tantalising mix of beer, escape room antics and tech talks. Even better, we’re giving you the chance to win 6 tickets.

Escape the room & get into tech

First things first – you need to be free on Wednesday 28th November 2018. The fun kicks off at 6:30pm sharp with an introduction to the industry from Discover Digital before you get prepped for your escape room. You could find yourself submerged on an abandoned vessel, stuck in the devil’s waiting room after a failed summoning or trapped in a haunted house with no sign of the previous owners – whichever room you end up in, you’ll have to put your heads together and unravel the clues to find your way out.

After you make your escape, their behavioural experts will tell you where your strengths lie and the guys at Exa Networks will explain how those skills translate in the tech industry. Simon McCaskill from Google Digital Garage and Leeds Boost is up next to talk training, then the team from Beer Hawk will close out the night by introducing you to the weird and wonderful roles you could be doing. You can hear it all with a drink in hand because we’re giving you each a pint of beer, a medium house wine, a spirit and mixer or a soft drink.
