Siliconmilkroundabout is known by its attendees as a casual and informal process. We fill an old brewery in Shoreditch with free coffee & beer, art installations, live music and London’s favourite food vendors. We do our best to make our attendees feel relaxed, and so they’re able to rid themselves of the usual pre-interview jitters and meet their ideal employers in a stress-free, enjoyable environment.
We recently sent out a survey to attendees of our most recent SMR event to understand how it went. We’re always looking to do what we can to make SMR as awesome as possible and so we’re always keen to hear what people thought of the weekend.
Within this information we also find opportunities to share insights with future attendees in order to help them prepare and ultimately to find their dream job.
Upon waking up from our post-event hibernation we sent out a survey to attendees of our previous event to get a general consensus of how it went down. Not only does this provide insights for future attendees, but there’s some great intuition for companies looking to join us at our next event.
Below we’ve highlighted the key takeaways from the event in order to help you stand out amongst the 200+ strong crowd of the most exciting companies in tech.
Silicon Milkroundabout has drawn to a close for this half of the year but despite the fact we’re stuffed full of free coffee & beer and haloumi fries we’re already excited for our next event.
#SMRmay17 was a fantastic event with some superb companies hiring some incredible individuals. We had a great mixture of worldwide brands and bootstrap startups with some travelling down from the North of England, and we even welcomed a few companies from as far as Canada.
What do you get when you put 180 companies in a brewery, alongside 3000 super-talented individuals and a whole load of free coffee and beer? You get the UK’s biggest tech jobs fair.
Silicon Milkroundabout is over for another year, and to be quite frank we’re a little emotional, but in between hysterically crying ourselves to sleep we’ve managed to put this blog together summing up the event with a few words, a couple of pictures and a video.
150 companies, 3000 candidates, and 1500 awesome tech jobs on offer.
#SMR7 was our most successful event to date with an incredible amount of hires among our attendees. Our attendees were in great spirits during the event as they conversed with the likes of Graze, MOO and SwiftKey over a drink from our free bar.
