Our award winning graduate Academy has helped build our exceptional technology practice since 2013. Find out how it can help build yours.
We ran our first Academy back in 2013. At the time, we were exclusively hiring junior people into our consulting teams with maths, comp-sci and engineering degrees. We often found ourselves having to provide training and sometimes individuals with the right technical skills were lacking in the harder to teach soft-skills, required to work effectively in collaborative teams.
To address this, we took the decision in 2013 to bring in 13 individuals, hiring them based on technical aptitude as well as the required soft skills, drive, determination and resilience.
In 2016, we extended this model beyond fulfilling our own demand, to provide individuals directly to customers who were looking for flexible ways to bring in the best junior talent and with the best training. Our customers were delighted then and continue to be delighted now with our people, hiring them after a period of time and growing their own permanent teams and capability.
Equipped With The Necessary Skills To Succeed
Our rigorous selection process means that we only recruit the top 1-2% of applicants. We test for the right blend of soft-skills and aptitude for success in technology delivery roles, including good communication and team working skills as well as a natural aptitude for technology. In our experience, the degree subject that someone studied is less important than their natural (and prior to this point often undiscovered), latent technical ability.
Academy Engineers are trained across the technology engineering lifecycle; from Agile software delivery methods, DevOps, test automation and performance testing, through to business analysis, web technology, databases and software development.
Our first-class technical training is delivered face-to-face by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) certified trainers who are seasoned and experienced practitioners; this ensures that our Academy Engineers can add immediate value to your project.
Women In Technology
“Selection of recruitment and resourcing partners is crucial for an organisation like Tunstall, which is focussed on putting its people first. The Ten10 Academy shares these values by investing in both technical and people skills. They also provide their people with significant pastoral support while they are with us on client site. This was a key USP that really attracted us to Ten10.”
