WeAreTechWomen to launch TechWomen50 Awards: Nominations Open

 

 

WeAreTechWomen is proud to announce the launch of its new TechWomen50 Awards.
 
The TechWomen50 awards are the first of their kind to focus solely on the female tech talent pipeline and recognise the impact of champions, companies and networks that are leading the way.
 
Whilst we feel it is extremely necessary to highlight successful and influential women, we also believe the pipeline of female technologists need a platform to shine too.
 
We hope that by highlighting the accolades of up-and-coming inspirational female tech talent, we can help to create a new generation of female role models for the industry.
 
Through the awards, we would also like to recognise a number of senior individuals who are championing up-and-coming women, as well as any organisations that have designed and implemented successful initiatives and programmes in order to attract, retain and develop the female tech talent.
 
Finally, we will applaud the often-voluntary efforts of the women in tech networks that operate across the UK, and again would like to formerly recognise these within our awards.

 


 
The details
 
Nominations will open online on 04 September via WeAreTechWomen. Nominations will close after a four-week period on 29 September.
 
A shortlist of 100 women from a range of technology disciplines will be chosen in October by an esteemed panel of judges. There will also be a shortlist of three champions, companies and networks.
 
The shortlist will then be published in November where we will also open the TechWomen50 and Network of the Year for public votes of support.
 
All winners will be announced in December. There will be 50 winners of the TechWomen50, a Champion of the Year, a Company of the Year and a Network of the Year.
 
All winners will be invited to celebrate their awards at a prestigious reception in January 2018.
 
The awards are kindly supported by BP, Bloomberg, Barclays, Capgemini, Deloitte, EY, Oliver Wyman, PwC, Santander and Verizon.

London black cabs lead the search for 'Temps in the City'

 

Temps in the City are making a big impression in London, as they lead a force of black cabs across the City of London. The temporary jobs site, that launched in May, can now be seen across London as part of its brand awareness campaign.

Eagle-eyed residents may have already seen the Hackney based cabs, wrapped in Temps livery, driving around the Capitols busy streets; while billboards emblazoned with eye-catching designs can also be seen across the capital in Shepherd’s Bush, Streatham and Penge.

The company is also using social media to get noticed by launching a competition based around the brand. Temps are encouraging social media users to post pics of the taxi onto their platforms for a chance to win some unique prizes, including free taxi rides around London within all of its traffic zones.

Temps in the City aims to bring the thousands of temporary jobs available in the capital to a new level – providing a new way of working for those who crave flexibility.

 

 

Its website, launched in May, providing thousands of new opportunities to job-seekers across London in the hospitality, IT and general customer service industry.

Managing director Emeca Beckford came up with the idea of Temps in the City after becoming frustrated with juggling work commitments and family life. The 36-year-old wanted to create a job site that allows job-seekers to enjoy the perfect work/life balance.

She said: “Launching a brand in a big city is a challenge because there is competition everywhere so we had to use our unique brand design to make an impact.

“Our marketing agency, North West-based Happy Creative were instrumental in coming up with the eye-catching designs and I wanted to apply this to where people look in London. Cabs are seen everywhere in London so this was an obvious match and with billboard space available all over the capital I knew our brand would look good in prominent places.”
