About the TTC

Watch this short video. Or this is an executive pack about the TTC. This is our Signatory menu showing ways in which Signatory companies engage with the TTC. We also have a short video about the impact of Tech Talent Charter (TTC) on the UK tech ecosystem.

This is the list of TTC Signatories (over 700 organisations).

Links to the TTC Toolkit:

Cost? There is no cost to be a Signatory. TTC is a not for profit organisation supported by the UK Government’s Digital Strategy.

What is the commitment? People, Plan, Practice and Data

People: Have a Senior Signatory with responsibility for the Charter commitments, and a named Principal, Data and PR contact.

Plan: Employers of tech
Have a plan to improve inclusion; including adopting inclusive recruitment and promotion processes and practices to support the development and retention of a diverse workforce (you'll find loads of examples of what other organisations are doing in our Open Playbook to help with this); OR

Consultants, Recruiters and other partners
Developing a plan to work with employers/clients and underrepresented groups to improve their inclusion and diversity in tech; supporting them to adopt inclusive recruitment and promotion processes and practices.

Practice: Collaborate with other Signatory organisations and the TTC to share what has worked and what has not worked for your company.

Data: Every September, contribute employment diversity data (anonymised and aggregated) for publication in our annual Diversity in Tech report.
