TechTalent, an AI-driven EdTech business, has announced it will be creating 150 new tech jobs in the West Midlands.

The 150 jobs will be created in collaboration with both small and large businesses operating across a range of sectors in the region. 

TechTalent expects the first of the new roles to be confirmed imminently, with the full 150 jobs steadily rolled out in the coming months.

The organisation, which is based in Birmingham, handles the entire administrative process of recruiting and training individuals before placing them with businesses to meet their specific needs.

Having analysts and technology specialists employed by TechTalent means businesses can call on their services flexibly, whether they need tech expertise for a short bespoke project or for a long-term placement.

Janice Rae, TechTalent CEO and founder, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to announce we are creating 150 new skilled tech jobs in the West Midlands. We’re seeing huge industry demand for individuals with specialist skills across a range of tech disciplines and are in a perfect position to help meet this demand.
