Celebrating Technology in the North of England, Scotland and Ireland

Since 2014, the annual Northern Tech Awards shine a light upon the leading technology businesses headquartered in the North of England, Scotland and Ireland. Organised by GP Bullhound, the Awards provide a unique way of celebrating the innovative technologies and businesses.

The event is invitation-only, attended by CEOs, entrepreneurs and business leaders in the Digital Economy and provides a fantastic networking opportunity for like-minded entrepreneurs to make contact and exchange ideas. The Northern Tech Awards is run as a not-for-profit event financed by GP Bullhound and a small group of sponsors who want to support entrepreneurship across the North.

This year's charity

Northern Tech Awards supports Ada, the National College of Digital Skills in its mission is to educate and empower the next generation of diverse digital talent.

The digital industry is experiencing epic growth but there is a talent shortage. Over 130,000 tech jobs are available each year in the UK but students are leaving education without sufficient knowledge and experience to get the job.

We are excited to have recently launched our first hub in the North of England, based in Manchester, where we are delivering a two-year Higher Apprenticeship Foundation Degree in Digital Innovation and our three-year Digital and Technology Solutions Professional Apprenticeship, as well as powerful short courses that open doors to careers in tech.

We are inviting employers to work with us as we grow our hub in the North, providing life-changing opportunities against an economic backdrop that is hitting young people the hardest, while expanding your pipeline of talented and diverse junior colleagues to meet your skills needs.
