Inspiring Women in Technology

Our help, support and advice to develop your workforce.

Did you know that: 

  • Whilst over 50% of the potential workforce is female, only 3% of females say they would consider technology as their 1st career option. 
  • Across the UK only 15% of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) workforce is female.
  • Only 5% of leadership positions in the technology industry are held by women.

UK Female Tech Workforce Stats

At Outsource, we are proud of our diversity, with 49% of sales, back office, account management and leadership roles taken up by females. As a technical workforce solutions provider, we are frequently asked by our customers how we can support them in improving their gender diversity and we wouldn’t be taking care of our customers and candidates if we didn’t work to address these concerns and make vital changes. 

We recognise that making changes at the attraction stage is too late: 

  •        What’s the point in tailoring your job adverts to attract more females, if the females aren’t reading the adverts?

  •        Why is this evolving, innovative and creative industry so misunderstood?

  •        Why are we not selling technical careers to our future female workforce? 

So what can a specialist recruiter such as Outsource do to help raise awareness? 

Read our regular blog updates and we also encourage everyone we engage with to 'get inclusive' and join our LinkedIn group.

We also hold regular Inspiring Women in Technology Meetup events and we'd love you to join us for drinks, nibbles and great networking. Have a look at the amazing panel for our last Meetup.
