Benefits

BUILDING A FLEXIBLE TALENT PIPELINE

We source, train, and deploy talent in locations across the globe; running classes throughout the year that focus on Java, Python, SQL and DevOps practices and more, which can lead to roles within Software Engineering, SRE, DevOps, Analytics and Analysis.

CULTIVATING A DIVERSE WORKPLACE CULTURE

The Pioneer programme enables us to support our clients’ diversity ambitions through the adoption of inclusive recruitment practices that support all marginalised and vulnerable groups. Our programme is open to young people from different social backgrounds, alongside those returning to the workplace or looking to re-skill, which immediately expands the available talent pool and boosts workplace diversity.

DEVELOPING EMPLOYEE EXPERTISE

We work in true business partnership with each one of our clients. As part of our committed approach to talent development, we give all our clients’ employees access to our Academy, enabling everyone in their business to benefit, and learn, from our full technical library.

INCREASING WORKFORCE CAPABILITY VIA FTE CONVERSION

Our clients benefit from the ability to convert Pioneers to FTEs at no cost to the business from 18 months onwards. Our Pioneers are permanently employed by IQUAD until they are transitioned to our clients’ workforces, free of charge, enabling us to ensure a smooth transition process.

SUPPORTING QUALITY ASSURANCE

Relevant qualifications and certifications underpin competence. All our Pioneers are certified within their own specialist area of expertise. Certifications held include AWS Cloud Practitioner, PCEP Certified Python Programmer or Java Programming, amongst many others.

CREATING & SUPPORTING CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Our Pioneers are full time employees of IQUAD. Through our team of dedicated engagement managers and technical trainers, we monitor and manage every Pioneer’s performance, productivity, and ongoing development. This ensures that their progression is always in line with our client’s expectations. We are also fully committed to supporting our Pioneers’ wellbeing on an ongoing basis.

Diversity & Inclusion

Inclusive talent management

Understanding and respecting diversity in the workplace is an important issue for all of us. Our inclusive approach to talent engagement management allows every person to feel comfortable, heard and supported. We work hard to build everyone’s confidence in their careers, regardless of background, race, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity.

Eliminating unconscious bias

To support diversity and inclusion, our assessment platform helps the Talent Acquisition team to run fair and objective test campaigns by removing any unconscious bias within the recruitment process.

Challenging unconscious bias in our own practices has helped us to cultivate an increasingly diverse workplace culture. We use this learned experience to help our clients remove implicit bias during their own interview selection process, for the wider benefit of everyone in the organisation

Supporting returners

By engaging with our experienced returners to work, each one of our clients has an innovative way to expand its talent pipeline, improve business performance and boost workplace diversity. Our training pathways, technical support and mentorship allows returners to acquire additional or refreshed skills, as we build their confidence in reintegrating back into a career, often supported by flexible working arrangements.

Social mobility focus

Through our Pioneer programme, we are continuously working hard to provide improved access to career opportunities for those from disadvantaged backgrounds through targeted engagement activities. This is helping us to make a real difference, enabling our clients to create more diverse workforces and inclusive workplaces that are based on diverse talent rather than privilege.

#

Academy

Our Pioneers continuously build upon their knowledge and experience through training and certification across development, frameworks, practices and tools. This builds our Pioneer’s confidence and technical ability, enabling us to direct them to the relevant career pathway across our Software Engineers, SRE, Data Analytics and Technical Business Analyst pathways.
