Goldman Sachs had plans to launch a new Engineering office in Birmingham and needed to hire and build it out quickly. We were a core part of their strategy to introduce new engineering talent into the new office. They were struggling with finding diverse tech talent, and specifically wanted to address their low level of Black employees.
Characteristics of our solution
We provided diverse tech talent through our open programmes – we run ongoing training courses to allow everyone the opportunity to learn to code on their own terms. From the open programme graduates, we found individuals who were willing to relocate to Birmingham to work with Goldman Sachs.
We have a pool of high-quality Engineers who are open to working across the UK, having completed one of our coding courses. They’ve all been trained in Java and Cloud Engineering skills, which were necessary for the roles available at Goldman Sachs. We’re able to offer rapid deployment of job-ready technologists due to this ever-growing talent pool, an aspect of our solution that was hugely effective in terms of the timeframe of this project.
Three of our consultants interviewed with Goldman Sachs through their standard process and passed with glowing feedback – a notably exceptionally high standard to meet. We assisted with the consultants’ relocation to , as well as ongoing support from our Consultancy Management team at every stage of the process, from interviewing through to onboarding and employee wellbeing.
