Skyscape Cloud Services is embarking on an aggressive recruitment drive to support the company’s delivery of cloud computing in the UK public sector. Skyscape has grown to 85 employees in just three years, with expectations to double that figure by 2016, and has won a number of high-profile contracts within central and local government.
“This company has grown quickly in a short period of time becoming a successful enterprise that creates jobs and is focused on continually innovating, in order to surpass customer expectations,” said Simon Hansford, CEO at Skyscape Cloud Services. “We are at the start of a very exciting journey, and potential employees have the opportunity to be part of that and join a young, rapidly growing company. They will play a key role in supporting exciting fast-track projects that will support a revolution in public sector ICT and the delivery of public services online.”
Skyscape is looking to hire experienced and passionate professionals interested in joining a company with the aim of accelerating digital transformation and the adoption of cloud computing in the UK public sector. It immediately has over 30 new roles across the organisation, from pre-sales cloud architects, cloud technical leads, web developers through to engineers and customer service experts. Further information can be found on Skyscape’s careers page. Speculative applications are welcome.
In addition, Skyscape has invested in tackling the skills gap with a work placement programme for a select number of undergraduates to gain experience in cloud and virtualisation technologies. The programme is open to students on sandwich degree courses that want to develop cloud skills and gain experience in the operation, development and marketing of cloud solutions. This month saw nine undergraduates join Skyscape as part of this programme and it is hoped that more than 15 will join as part of next year’s intake of undergraduates.
