There’s always a 4 week notice period and a swap in/swap out policy. We also have a fantastic _nologist support team who look after the consultants to ensure we tackle anything before it becomes a problem.

_nology Consultants are on client site full-time and are treated like a client employee. We encourage them to join in client culture and socials.
_nologists have been through 12 weeks of practical, hands on training using tools they’ll use in the workplace. This means they can start delivering from day 1.
Beyond this, we have a dedicated consultant support team who solely focus on _nologist professional and technical development. They’re technically experienced and can tackle any issue the _nologist has. This helps to relieve reliance upon any line manager, saving them time. This support is full-time and unlimited across the 18 month programme and a key part of the service.

The Technology Consultancy Programme is a fully funded programme.
You will receive 12 weeks of full-time fully funded tech training. Upon successful completion of your training you'll receive a conditional job placement. We'll look to place you as a Junior Developer or Junior Cloud Engineer into one of our UK clients. The role could be based in an office, hybrid or remote.

This course is delivered fully remotely via our online training platform. You’ll be taught in real-time, so there’ll be plenty of opportunities to interact, ask questions, and get to know your fellow students.
This course is 12 weeks long, and you’ll be training Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm (you'll get any bank holidays within this period off). Your training period will start on a set, allocated date, which cannot be changed.
You’ll train in squads of 8-16 people. It’s super interactive, so you’ll work closely with the other trainees and the coaches.
You won’t get paid, but your training will be free! Your salaried role as a Tech Consultant will start once you’re working on your first client project.
The training is very intensive, and requires a lot of time and brain power! Some trainees keep part-time jobs, but you should be prepared to be putting maximum effort into the course.
If you are placed into a role and you're unhappy, we do our best to understand why that is and help – through speaking with client, providing coaching or additional upskilling. We would want the process to be a positive one for both you and the client, so we’d do our very best to help and sort out the situation. If we think the client is being unfair/providing a bad environment, we’d withdraw you, otherwise we’d work with you get you back on track and feeling happy in the workplace. It is so important for us that you are happy.
In regards to leaving employment during the first 18 months with us, you would then be expected to pay back the training fee on a pro rata basis. I.e. if you leave after 9 months, you'd be expected to pay half of the course fee approx £4.5k.
Your pension and benefits will come through us, so these benefits include: Bonus holiday for strong attendance, employee discounts, eyecare vouchers, season ticket loan, cycle to work scheme, tech loan and client referral. £1,000 if you facilitate an introduction to a new client/new client area resulting in a _nology placement!
