A non-profit, collaborative community platform, accessible to anyone, anywhere in the global ICT sector.
Our MissionTo offer leadership, guidance, continuous learning and professional development opportunities to all individuals in the tech sector worldwide.
Our VisionIrish Tech Society will be known as the primary point of contact for support and opportunities in the global tech sector, by the year 2025.
We work closely with public and private bodies to find individuals with an enthusiasm for tech through awareness programs, campaigns and events. We aim to work with individuals from all academic backgrounds and of all ages. Diversity and inclusion are one of the main pillars of Irish Tech Society.
We collaborate with various industry partners and start-ups to provide free mentorship and shadowing opportunities. We give tech enthusiasts an opportunity to observe the work life of a tech professional and evaluate for themselves whether or not it is for them.
Fast-tracked, and certified learning opportunities will be given to those who wish to continue the journey. Each student learns through live interactive lessons in a hybrid classroom, provided by experienced lecturers.
Practical experience is as important as theoretical knowledge. It is a vital step in incubating critical skills. We also strongly believe in the ‘earn while you learn’ principle. By providing tech development services at zero-profit rates to organisations with limited funding, we aim to create paid, meaningful, and in-house work experience opportunities for our members.
The next step is for our job centre to get them industry ready. We organise various workshops on career branding, CV and cover letter writing, interview skills, organisational psychology and mock interviews. Regular networking events are also organised for jobseekers, recruiters and potential employers to bridge the gap between skills and opportunities.
Our job centre bridges the gap between tech talent and career opportunities. We find job placements that best suit each individual with our trusted network of reputable employers in the sector. As a result, employers are given faster access to the critically skilled talent pool we have incubated.
