Manchester Graduate Recruitment Fair 2016

Once again we're returning to the Manchester Graduate Recruitment Fair at Manchester's Armitage Centre in Fallowfield, Manchester.

After the success of last year, where we managed to recruit two excellent new software developers, we are keen to once again cast our net and see what this year's graduate pool has to offer.

Chris Hills, Software Development Manager at Arden Software, said: "As an alumni of the University of Manchester myself, I believe that having close links with the quality institutions that produce the technical talent of the future right onto our doorstep is a huge advantage."

"Last year, we creamed off the very best of it, with two new developers joining us from Manchester, and I hope to build on our successful relationship in the years ahead."

We're one of 150 exhibitors attending this two day event, and we'll be setup on Stand 3 on the second day.

Opening times for the fair are 10:30am - 4:00pm, Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 June 2016.

Training and ongoing training is a key aspect of increasing the return on your investment in Impact and exposing you to the new features and educating you on their use is of key importance.  This is why Total Impact 2014 is not just a get together to discuss the new features with some show and tell.  Every attendee will have use of a fully functional Impact workstation to get trained in the use of Impact 2014.  This is a training event (with some fun thrown in-- of course!).  You the user are allowed to select the classes that will provide you with the knowledge that you are looking for, such as 3D, graphics handling, animation, Manufacturing best practices, layouts and tips and tricks to name a few. This combined with an open session that will allow you to receive individual attention to any special needs and our round table discussions where you will be able to determine the future course of Impact.
