We had a fantastic week last week sponsoring and attending #DataTalent18 & #DataSummit18 as part of #DataFest18. It was amazing to see what is happening within the Data and Technology Sector. 
Thanks to everyone who came and visited our stand and workshops. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. 

Data is everywhere. Data is the new oil. Data Scientist is the hottest job in tech. It’s not how much data you’ve got, it’s what you do with it… In a world where data plays an increasingly important role, meet Scotland’s Data Warriors.

MBN Team continues to grow.


As a leading global provider of people solutions, MBN is only as good as our people. Every day, we play a vital role in helping client organisations to identify the very best people to help them to create value and grow with confidence.  One characteristic in common with all of the organisations we work with is that they have very high expectations of our consultants.  As part of an ongoing growth strategy, we respond by recruiting truly outstanding people.

As a fast paced, agile business, it is vitally important that MBN recruits the best talent and the best fit individuals to join the company. On this occasion we welcome Darren Moffat and Ryan McFeeley into the MBN Academy.

Designed to help to create an ‘employer of choice’ proposition to attract new staff and engineered to support development and retention of the very best staff and managers, our Academy is something we are very proud of.  

Darren left school and was a professional footballer for three years with his most recent club being Ross County FC. He then worked as an electrical engineer before joining us at MBN. Specialising in Data Science & Analytical recruitment, if you want to find out what roles are available, get in touch with Darren now.

Ryan has a degree in Psychology from the University of Strathclyde. He started his recruitment career in 2016 primarily specialising in graduate level IT roles in Software Development and Testing.

We wish them both the best of luck and look forward to their contribution. 


Blockchain: Enabler or Disrupter?
Blockchain Panel Discussion



MBN were delighted to take part in this even which was organised by Glasgow University International Law Society & Glasgow University Business.

One of the most discussed technological developments today is the Blockchain – the technology behind the digital Bitcoin currency that is expected to shake up our world economy. It allows for an integer and efficient transfer of not only information but anything of value (think money, intellectual property, contracts etc.). While its application and impact on the financial sector have been more evident, other industries are now also hoping to profit from the technology. What are the possibilities and potential pitfalls of the Blockchain? How will it impact our economy and society? What industries will it affect and what will it replace? More importantly, what role can the UK/Europe and Scotland in particular play in becoming a leader in the field?

The panel discussion covered different business and legal areas of Blockchain, with UK and International Experts stepping up to give an insight of their experiences of this timely and important topic.
