    The city’s biggest employers will be present at these meet-ups and will be actively searching for skilled graduates in multiple areas such as cyber security and fintech. "At the NI Science Festival, we work to make STEM accessible to people of all ages and abilities, and to encourage people to develop themselves and pursue career in these thriving industries," NI Science Festival Director explained Chris McCreery.

    MCS Group STEM recruitment specialist David McCrisken was keen to promote the event to STEM students, saying "MCS Group is delighted to be supporting the Beers & Careers series which is a fantastic showcase of Northern Ireland’s STEM employers. Each evening will feature truly innovative an cutting edge organisations."
