energyhelpline at Silicon Milkroundabout 2016

Silicon Milkroundabout is nearly upon us and we’ll be sending a team of developers to continue our search for top tech talent.

Silicon Milkroundabout is a great way to find out more about some companies that you’re heard about and some that you haven’t and to speak to the people who actually work for the companies represented - people who could be your new team mates!
