Details

Position yourself for growth in the 2nd half of 2017. Build a team. Join a team. Get stuff done!

UXhibition 1 was a success with incredible connections made and new job opportunities grabbed. So we are encouraged to organize another episode.

Startups looking to hire UX practitioners with pay or equity share, as well as UX freelancers, consultants and contractors looking for new opportunities, this is the event for you. Come one, come all designers from junior to senior level to the second episode of our UX talent exhibition + founders networking. Get to hear startups pitch their ambitions, product values and desirable candidate specs, likewise designers showcase their portfolios.

If you are a designer, equip yourself with energy, hope and passion to attend. You could be joining the next industry winning team or become co-founder to a multi-million pound project.

For employers, get to skip recruiters, stack of CVs, minimise stress and probably let the chemistry do the rest. It could be gel-ling at first meet. If you're hiring as an employer and looking to team up with a designer as a co-founder, or a speaker looking to speak on a relevant topic within context, please follow this link http://london.uxconnect.org/partners/ to register your interest so we can provide you a fulfilling experience. Recruiters are also welcomed. Slots are FREE but limited, hurry and book now.
