Have you been in a room where all the possible solutions to your recruitment and CSR needs are in one place, tailored to your company?

Whether you are looking to hire juniors (software engineers, data scientists, security specialists etc), diversify your recruitment pipeline, upskill your employees or you are at the stage where you would like to contribute to solving talent and skills shortages, TOMAS will make sure you find your answers.

There are 69 ways in the region of Amsterdam to benefit from the local tech talent ecosystem. Finding the right talent, project or partner is time and resource consuming. TOMAS creates opportunities for businesses to meet the key educators, programs and projects that fuel the ecosystem with (diverse) tech talents.

Within 2.5 hours you will get the most recent picture of the local talent development ecosystem, have the opportunity to pitch your needs to a wide range of (pre-selected) talent development initiatives, engage in the strategic discussion and have 1-on-1 matchmaking with the local heroes.

Some of the TOMAS initiatives: Codam, Techgrounds, DeeploAI, Codaisseur, Equals, Make IT Work, Hack Your Future, Techionista, BIT, Code to Change, Iron Hack, TechMeUp, HelloMentor and many more on TOMAS .
