“We have a fantastic quality of life here in the North West, with a lower cost of living, less traffic, and excellent leisure activities right on our doorstep. However, it’s the career opportunities that exist here, the salaries on offer, and the prospects for future growth that are the real attraction for ICT professionals.

“These are the messages that Tech North West wants to promote, and it’s why we are proud at SL Controls to be involved.”
