WHAT'S YOUR ALTERNATIVE JOB TITLE?

Are you a fixer or finder, a time saver, a life safer, a sharer, carer or fun maker? Which of our campaign's alternative job titles do you identify with? Together they highlight the impact of technology in our world today. #WhichOneAreYou

THE FIXERS

Accordion open/close icon

Some see numbers, you see the broken code. Some see wires, you see the outage. And you fix it, keeping society connected, up and running – cutting down the downtime. Fragile technology robust again.

Are you a Fixer or know somebody who is?

THE FINDERS

Accordion open/close icon

People and places, pets and property – we locate them with the tech you design and build. Thanks to digital navigation systems, tracking devices and mapping, we know where we are today, and we know where we’re going.

Are you a Finder or know somebody who is?

THE TIME SAVERS

Accordion open/close icon

It’s the most precious commodity of all, and technology helps us to make more of it. The IT you design and build gets us to do things more efficiently. And we get back the time once wasted… on chores… in queues…  

Are you a Time Saver or know somebody who is?

THE LIFE SAVERS

Accordion open/close icon

Technology enriches our lives, but you go a step further – you develop tech that preserves lives. From digital healthcare to innovative safety systems, in your hands technology is making the world a safer place for us all.

Are you a Life Saver or know somebody who is?

THE SHARERS

Accordion open/close icon

You deliver the technology that brings us together – the devices and apps we use to share news with friends far-away, or a wish-you-were-here from our holiday, and quiz nights, and music, and photos, videos, memories and laughs.

Are you a Sharer or know somebody who is?

THE FUN MAKERS

Accordion open/close icon

Entertainment and leisure, it’s a serious business. Pleasure seekers will find you where cutting-edge technology meets good old-fashioned fun – pushing creative boundaries, innovation and smiles.

Are you a Fun Maker or know somebody who is?

THE FORECASTERS

Accordion open/close icon

You do something special with tech, you use it to see into the future. Powerful predictions powered by data… consumer trends, market forces, security risks, weather events, the nation’s health, global activity – we’ve never been so predictable.

Are you a Forecaster or know somebody who is?

THE CARERS

Accordion open/close icon

Your IT is heart-shaped. You understand the huge difference technology makes to people who need an extra helping hand. You design the solutions that give them greater comfort and wellbeing, support and independence.

Are you a Carer or know somebody who is?

THE PROBLEM SOLVERS

Accordion open/close icon

For most of today’s problems, technology has the solution. It’s not always obvious, that’s what keeps it interesting. That’s why you have a plan, a process – and because there’s nothing more rewarding than working it out.

Are you a Problem Solver or know somebody who is?

THE COMMUNICATORS

Accordion open/close icon

Business agility has leapt. We now work with people all around the world from our own kitchen table. And you make it happen – resilient networks and integrated platforms connecting clients and colleagues, wherever they are.

Are you a Communicator or know somebody who is?

THE FUTURE PROOFERS

Accordion open/close icon

You’re a step ahead, a visionary, with an eye on the horizon. But you’re taking action now. You’re building a sustainable digital society, accessible for everyone – so we’re all primed and ready for that horizon too.

Are you a Future Proofer or know somebody who is?

THE INSPIRERS

Accordion open/close icon

You’re closing the digital divide and creating a diverse digital profession... you have the skills and enthusiasm to spark curiosity in others, to lead their journeys into tech, with a passion fuelled by every light bulb moment along the way.

Are you an Inspirer or know somebody who is?

THE PLANET PROTECTORS

Accordion open/close icon

You don’t just know the power of tech… you know how it can be used to tackle the greatest challenges our planet’s ever faced. You’re designing the IT solutions we need to solve the climate emergency and sustain our world.
