What is NEXT GEN?

The NEXT GEN event is our way of creating change by doing what we do best. We recognise the current high demand for mid-senior level roles is leaving out a huge portion of incredible potential hires because companies aren't as open to hiring juniors, graduates or career changers. This isn't sustainable and needs to change. These groups will eventually become the future teams who will continue to grow and make companies successful (if they are not too put off beforehand). We have to do better to help support, guide and nurture them.

This is also a really exciting opportunity for tech companies to give back and help support the next wave of tech talent coming through.
  • What roles are included?

    The NEXT GEN event covers the same roles as our main Silicon Milkroundabout event:

    • Software engineering & development
    • Data science & BI
  • What's the format of the event?

    Like Silicon Milkroundabout, the focus of NEXT GEN is meaningful one to one conversations. However rather than just being about hiring, the NEXT GEN event is also about companies providing helpful information about the next stages of your career including, available job roles, advice, graduate schemes, internships, courses and mentorship.

    It'll be in the same venue as our Silicon Milkroundabout event at The Truman Brewery in East London. There'll be a live DJ, free bar, free coffee, ball pit + lots and lots of conversations.

    This is very much our first pilot (so go easy on us) but we're hoping to turn this into a similar scale event to Silicon Milkroundabout, providing the next generation with a wider array of help.

  • Can I attend Silicon Milkroundabout on the Saturday or Sunday if I have a NEXT GEN ticket?

    Your ticket is only valid for the NEXT GEN event, between 2:00 - 7:30pm on Friday 18 November. Due to capacity at the venue we are only able to issue one ticket per person for either the NEXT GEN event on 12 May or Silicon Milkroundabout on the 13 and 14 May. If you have received a ticket to the NEXT GEN event it is because that is the event we think you will get the most out of based on the information you provided on your profile.

  • How do I know who is hiring at the NEXT GEN event?

    You can filter how the companies can help you (including those who are hiring now and who are interested in hiring in the future) using the drop down menu at the top of the NEXT GEN page.

  • Why have I received a ticket to a different day to what I wanted?

    We issue tickets to the day we feel you would get the most out of based on the information provided in your profile.

    The NEXT GEN event is for those just starting out in their career, typically with under 1 years experience. Silicon Milkroundabout is for more experienced tech professionals with the Saturday focusing on Product, Marketing and Design and Sunday focusing on Engineering and Data Science.

    Due to the capacity at the venue we are only able to issue one ticket per person to either NEXT GEN or Silicon MIlkroundabout - if you think we have made a mistake then please do let us know by emailing [email protected] and we can review your application.

  • Can I bring a plus 1?

    Both NEXT GEN and Silicon Milkroundabout our ticketed so you have to have a ticket to attend. We do not allow plus ones due to the venue's capacity and H+S regulations. We always reach capacity so have to ensure relevant job seekers get priority in attending.
