With an aim to encourage more women to start and sustain a career in the tech sector, Sparta Global is thrilled to have been recognised for helping to close the gender gap and showing more women that IT and technology subjects aren’t just for men…
After graduating from university, it can be a daunting experience to enter the world of employment – particularly when you are looking to enter a competitive industry such as technology. This step can be even more difficult for women with just 17% of the people working in technology in the UK being female.

Whether you are a graduate looking for your first opportunity in technology or a seasoned IT professional seeking a role in a new, supportive working environment – Women in Tech is a platform for success. As part of its annual Employer Awards, and in recognition of our continued efforts to attract more women graduates to the tech industry, Sparta Global has been crowned “Female Grad Employer of the Year!"
At Sparta Global we are dedicated to increasing diversity in tech through supporting the development of graduate women. Our talent team visits universities across the UK to discuss the incredible opportunities and career prospects available to women seeking a career in technology. From the first five-minute conversation at a graduate fair, to your first job role in tech – we support and nurture our women throughout their journey.
