Pledge to help make Greater Brighton the best place in the UK for anyone to have a fulfilling career in the digital sector.

What is the Skills & Talent Manifesto?

Although as a digital sector we are usually defined by the technologies we use, we know that our ability to succeed lies in the skills and talent of the people we employ and with whom we work. We recognise as individual businesses, as a sector and as a region that we will only thrive if we attract and support talented people.

Our simple but ambitious goal is nothing less than to make the Greater Brighton city region the single best place in the UK for anyone to have a fulfilling career in the digital, media and technology sector.

This manifesto is about recognising that if we as businesses cooperate around this goal, we will hasten its success.

The set of beliefs, aspirations and commitments it contains have been developed to achieve this goal. Signatories to this manifesto pledge to work individually and collectively through their businesses to achieve its aims.
