The July 2013 Opportunities Overseas Expo – Canadian (BC) ICT jobs

The British weather may not be renowned for its reliability – but the Opportunities Overseas Expo is. The Opportunities Overseas Expo has evolved, with July 2013 seeing the most targeted round of expos to date with a specific ICT focus. The July 2013 UK roadshow will cover the entirety of England, from the south to the midlands to the north. As well as revisiting our flagship location, London, and returning to Birmingham for the first time in a number of years, the Opportunities Overseas Expo is heading to Newcastle in the north east of England. With a section focused on British Columbia ICT jobs, you can expect to meet high volumes of professionals with the skills you need; we’re confident of that because the March 2013 expos were the busiest since 2008.
