Need help to find creative people to work with - what skills are you looking for?

Skip to notices

The current crisis means that we are all having to think about how to do things differently to keep the business going. Unfortunately, not many of us will be fortunate enough to have all the skills we need in-house to achieve this. The XpoNorth Notice Board is an easy way to let others know what skills you are looking for, and will be a useful place to see what work might be available for creatives, so, whether you need a film maker, coding skills, experience of online sales or anything else, this is the place to post.

We will promote the board as widely as we can, but in order to keep this as up to date as possible, we are not 'recommending' or evaluating the skills levels of respondents, we will just do what we can to link people up.

If you have any questions or need some advice, just send a question by e-mail to Claire and we will get back to you with a response as quickly as we can.
