You can see our full programme of events here We know you are awesome and we’d love you to join our team.

Working With Us

Girl Geek Scotland has always relied on volunteers to help us create our world class events. We fit our work into coffee breaks and after hours effort. Many hands make light work, and for every event we have an “All hands on deck approach!”. This means that the Lead for one event will offer support to the Lead on another event. You may be coordinating Industry Leaders for one event and serving wine at the next! As we are expanding there is a need for clearer lines of communication, and we are now developing specific roles that meet the needs of our community, funders and partner organisations. We are getting more and more men attending our events. We have one or two men joining our team this year and would welcome more applications from the boys. Its great to have guys in tech onside! If you are prepared to roll up your sleeves, we can help you reach your ambitions!
