GCHQ, together with the Cabinet Office, DSTL, HMGCC, the Government Digital Service and the National Crime Agency, are running an event at Birmingham University on 27 January aimed at female students who want to learn more about opportunities in UK Government cyber careers.
Research suggests demand for cyber professionals is growing 3.5 times faster than the overall IT job market and 12 times faster than the overall job market. Yet only 10% of the current global cyber workforce are women. This event is an opportunity for female students to explore internships, graduate schemes, summer schools, etc., as well as network with government recruiters, cyber experts and peers from other UK universities.
Guest Speakers will include:
- Director Cyber GCHQ
- Penny Endersby Division Head Cyber and Information Systems Division, Dstl
Please note that anyone wishing to attend must apply in advance through the website by Monday 18th January.
