Partnership aims to help bring talented women into tech jobs

August 29 2018

ALD Automotive has become the first business to partner with Bristol based Women’s Tech Hub and Women’s Tech Jobs.

The aim of the venture is to recognise female talent within an historically male-dominated sector.

ALD, based in Emersons Green,  is the leading vehicle leasing operation in Europe, managing over 1.5 million vehicles across 43 countries.

Women’s Tech Hub’s mission is to create a support system for women in technology, focusing on practical strategies such as mentoring and confidence boosting. The organisation has also launched Women’s Tech Jobs to find great companies for women in technology to work with and be supported throughout their careers

Rob Baker,  from ALD, sad: “We’re very excited to form what we hope will be a long term partnership with the Women’s Tech Hub.

“We actively promote equal opportunity, fairness and impartiality and the values and ethics of the Women’s Tech Hub are closely aligned to our own core business values. We believe that diversity strengthens our business, providing new ideas and allowing us to continue to be one of the most innovative organisations in our sector.”

Janice Rae of Women’s Tech Jobs said: “We’re thrilled to be working with ALD Automotive, who are a truly forward-thinking organisation. We’ve been so impressed with how women in tech are encouraged and supported in the business. ALD is really setting itself apart in this area and we’re delighted to be partnering with them on their journey”.
