HERO Podcast


About the podcast

With the STEM industry experiencing rapid innovation during the global pandemic, and with an historic skills shortage to contend with, the team at HERO Recruitment believes there’s no better time to tap into the knowledge and expertise of our industry leaders to discover why a career in STEM is a rewarding experience.

In this podcast, we speak to leaders in STEM about their own career journeys in this unique sector, the challenges they’ve faced along the way, and their forecasts for the future. We’ll discover what it takes to manage cutting-edge tech projects, and the teams that help to deliver them in an ever-evolving landscape.

Through a series of open exchanges, our guests will share personal anecdotes, market insight and industry predictions. We want to inspire the next generation of STEM talent by showcasing the success of real people who are already excelling on their leadership journeys.
