Phoenix is now a member of Manchester Digital

Our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and the technology sector in the North West continues with our recent partnership with Manchester Digital.

After partnering with one of the North West’s most established innovation hubs, HOST, in 2021, we are continuing our dedication to diversity and inclusion and the technology industry in the North West of England. Manchester Digital is the home of Greater Manchester’s digital and technology organisations, working with them to build their presence in the region and make an environment for them to succeed.

One of Manchester Digital’s main priorities is its Talent and Skills programme. By providing professional development and training, Manchester Digital aims to bridge the digital skills gaps and inspire the next generation of digital professionals. With our dedication towards providing learning opportunities and development for our staff, this is an aspect which really attracted us to join this community. Also, their commitment towards the next generation will enable us to find talented professionals for future vacant roles. Take a look at our current vacant roles now.

Speaking on Phoenix joining the Manchester Digital community, Partnership Manager, Kate Wilson said, “We are delighted to welcome Phoenix Software into our digital and tech community at Manchester Digital. We look forward to emerging Phoenix Software into our initiatives which support the development of a robust and diverse sector.”

Becky Wilson, Head of Microsoft Licensing and Strategic Development at Phoenix comments on the partnership, “Our strategic partnership with Manchester Digital will allow us to collectively unlock key opportunities and drive sustainable growth within the region’s technology space. The programmes and initiatives Manchester Digital deliver align perfectly with Phoenix’s own objectives and goals, so I’m confident that together we can make a difference.”
