Curated jobs for the digital & creative community in Derby & Derbyshire.
We thought you'd like to know the new Mainframe jobs board is now live! It's all about getting our community talking directly. We want employers in our region to find the great talent we know exists locally and we want our local talent to stay local.
We know that some of the UK’s most talented digital & creative businesses call Derby and Derbyshire home.
The Mainframe Awards are an unprecedented opportunity to highlight and celebrate these talented creatives and their work.

Did you know that your business could be eligible for an Elevator grant?
Creative and digital businesses in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire wanting to buy in external expertise can access a grant which refunds them 30% of the supplier costs. Projects should be temporary and related to supporting business growth. Elevator grants are available from the Big House team at Nottingham Trent University.

In August I was invited to take part in a Mainframe event, to discuss the idea of Digital Disruption, and to talk a little bit about Ara, my robot songbird that was exhibited as part of the Machine Made: Art, Robots and AI exhibition.

We were treated to a facinating evening with Leila at our August Mainframe event on Digital Disruption. As with every great speaker she left us wanting to know more so we popped across a couple of extra questions and here's what she had to say.
