Jill McKinney, Head of Skills at Sunderland Software City, said, “This is a very exciting time at Sunderland Software City. We’ve been lucky enough to be awarded some brilliant projects, such as Digital Pathfinders, Tech Startup Sunderland and Tech Talent Ready, which has enabled us to create several new roles and hire fantastic people. We’re delighted to be investing in talent yet again, and are looking forward to welcoming the new hires to the team”.
