Details

Come one, come all and join us for the FAJIL festive un-party. We will be kicking off the New Year and celebrating that we have passed the 3000 member mark!!!

It will be on the 21st January at the fabulous Sky campus in Osterley. The refreshments are being sponsored by our good friends at Sky.

This will be something a little different to our usual FAJIL events and will include a combination of networking, hiring company pitches and tours of the Sky Campus lead by the very developers that work in those specific product teams.

Just a reminder, Unfortunately we will not be allowing recruiters to attend this event.

FORMAT

6:00pm – 6:30pm register, make a badge, grab a beer and start networking

7:15 – Official Kick off! Words from our sponsors and 2 minute pitches from companies on mission and roles available; bring your team up to the front so that candidates can see who to look for.

7:45-ish - more beer and networking until we kick off the studio tours.

8:00pm – Studio tours. Get a better insight into what the teams at Sky are working on and chat directly to the developers working on those teams. These will run for +- 30 min, after we will head back for more networking until we close at 9:30ish

*** Companies, and Candidates there is a section for you below, please read!!!***

Companies

If you're offering one or more jobs, check what the sponsors are interested in - because candidates with those interests will usually dominate the event. We strongly recommend that you post a short description of your mission and open roles in the discussion below, and you prepare a two minute presentation on what your company mission is, and what roles and culture you're offering.

Do bring along technical staff. Techies like hearing from peers and managers what the business is like and what the expectations and culture are. Your team can also help with screening, of course - fast matching of culture and fit is the point.

Candidates

There will be a number of roles on offer, at many skill levels from career entrant to, usually, CTO/Architect/Lead Tech/Product Management. There are typically fewer roles the further we move from coders.

CHECK TO SEE WHAT THE EVENT SPONSORS ARE LOOKING FOR, ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT - THEN CHANGE YOUR RSVP, PLEASE!

We do get companies just turning up without a strong overlap with sponsors, and a wide range of roles are usually on offer, including roles that may not be the primary focus of the sponsors. But you will stand a higher chance of success if what you offer, overlaps with what the event sponsors are looking for, and the comments from hiring companies and agents in the discussion area below, and in the attendee descriptions on the right.
