As the UK’s digital technology industry continues to grow six times faster than any other sector, there has never been a better opportunity to apply for a place at the CloudStratex Talent Academy and begin the New Year with an exciting tech career. Founded by leading London-based tech firm, CloudStratex, the Talent Academy was created to address the UK’s digital skills crisis, by providing paid on-the-job training and funded professional qualifications, to those with the ability and motivation to become an IT professional.
Internationally recognised for its operational integration services, CloudStratex has built its reputation by transforming how blue-chip businesses leverage next generation technologies, and its Talent Academy epitomises its approach to excellence. Therefore, smart, motivated individuals from all backgrounds are invited to apply to become one of the academy’s Gen-L’s (Generation of Leaders). Successful applicants will be intuitive, problem solvers, with great communication skills and a fearless manner. Most importantly they will want to genuinely learn about technology and be driven by the need to exceed their own expectations, and those of others.
Those selected by the Talent Academy will not only benefit from CloudStratex’s home-grown training pathways but will receive funded technical and business professional qualifications and certifications in specialisms such as AWS Cloud, Agile Methodologies, ITILV4 and DevOps. Throughout their time at CloudStratex, Gen-L’s will be given numerous opportunities to be client facing, as well as develop their leadership skills, by taking responsibility for individual projects and managing others. Furthermore there is a great starting salary and a range of benefits for those who become part of the CloudStratex team.
Fred Flack, Head of Talent Academy at Cloudstratex stated: “The UK has rightly developed a reputation as an innovation nation and technology businesses are at the heart of the UK economy, making cities greener and underpinning the financial, health, manufacturing, and mobility sectors. That means there will be an even greater need, above and beyond our existing one, for the UK’s workforce to be technologically educated, trained, and upskilled. Therefore, as a company that genuinely recognises the importance of CSR, we are delighted to do our part, by offering free training and a great career path to those looking to improve their situation, in what can only be described as the toughest of times.”
Adrian Overall, CEO added: “In our increasingly interconnected and globalised world, the application of technology is a competitive differentiator for any business. Unfortunately, there is a severe digital skills shortage which means that supply cannot keep up with demand. Companies are already spending billions on recruitment, temporary staff, and consultants to plug the gaps in their capabilities, but this is clearly not a sustainable solution. We are confident that our Talent Academy will be a part of the solution, making a real difference to the bottom line of UK PLC, as well as those looking for a new and exciting career in technology.”
