Event  techUK Future of Work and Jobs Conference how can we harness tech to drive skills opportunity and growth across the UK_.png

In June, techUK and partners will bring together world leading technology experts, lawyers, academics, policymakers and other key stakeholders for techUK’s inaugural Future of Work and Jobs conference.

Ahead of a General Election where much of the conversation will centre on the economy, and amidst the start of London Tech Week, the conference will discuss the central role that technology and skills must play in the UK’s growth ambitions.

With workplace innovations like AI set to transform work and jobs, the conference will discuss how the UK can drive the opportunities of technology into every sector, and every community and region, and deliver the productivity growth the country desperately requires.

As early signs of labour market loosening emerge, the conference will also evaluate the tech jobs landscape and what this means for policymakers. It will explore the pressing need to take action to close the UK’s longstanding skills gaps, and how we can build an education ecosystem fit for a dynamic digital economy, ensuring that businesses have the pipeline of talent they need to capitalise on the opportunities of transformational technologies like AI.

During the conference, we will hear from both government and Shadow Cabinet speakers on their respective approaches to technology adoption and skills, as well as their policy priorities in an election year.

Join us on 6 June for a half day of panels and discussions packed with critical insights as the country prepares for a General Election.
