Our Previous Events

Chester Cloud & DevOps MeetUp

Searchability's Chris Hopley launched this event in 2019 in collaboration with the recruitment team from Iceland Foods in an effort to bring a stronger tech presence to our HQ City of Chester. The first event was a roaring success with full attendance, plenty of food and drinks and some really inspiring talks from Stuart Bickley (Head of Application Development at Iceland Foods), Patrick Gawley (Integration Architect at Iceland Foods) as well as Garry Meaburn (Lead Cloud Architect at Barclays). Visit the MeetUp Page Here to learn more.

Ministry of Test Manchester

Searchability's Gabbi Trotter sits on the board for Ministry of Test Manchester, co-organising events with the MOT team and sponsoring on behalf of Searchability too. If you are based in Manchester and work within the software testing sector then these events are not to be missed! Click here to learn more.

LeedsPHP MeetUp

Searchability have sponsored the LeedsPHP Meetup since August 2018, providing financial assistance to allow the organisers to provide food and drink to attendees whilst they listen to industry leading speakers discussing PHP related topics. In addition to this financial assistance Searchability have taken part in two Career Q&As, providing our insight into the world of recruitment giving practical hints and tips to those looking to further their career in tech.

Client MeetUp Events

Over the years we have collaborated with one of our clients BJSS on a variety of Tech MeetUp's and events, in particular within the Software Testing department through our recruiter Gabbi Trotter. This has included "Docker for Testers" and "How to be an awesome tester".

QA Beginners Club

Searchability's Gabbi Trotter co-founded QA Beginners Club in 2019, to help offer a safe environment for people who are interested in becoming a QA / Tester. The events are held regularly in the City of Manchester - click here to learn more.

Northern Power Women

We collaborated with Northern Power Women as Sponsors and contributors for their Podcast in 2019, with our recruiter Laura Coppell on the expert panel as well as our recruiter (and Captain of Stoke City Womens' Football Club) Meg Bowyer taking part in an interview on career balance. This event was a great way to champion some of our own Searchability ladies, and deliver advice around job search too. Read more in this blog.
