Tech firm CloudStratex has opened its doors as it seeks Gen-Ls – the next generation of leaders. 

Based in London, the Talent Academy provides paid on-the-job training and funded professional qualifications to people seeking a career as an IT professional. 

CloudStratex, which has built its reputation by transforming how blue-chip businesses leverage next generation technologies, has urged smart, problem-solving, motivated individuals with great communication skills from all backgrounds to apply. 

Fred Flack, head of Talent Academy at Cloudstratex, said: “The UK has rightly developed a reputation as an innovation nation and technology businesses are at the heart of the UK economy, making cities greener and underpinning the financial, health, manufacturing, and mobility sectors.  

“That means there will be an even greater need, above and beyond our existing one, for the UK’s workforce to be technologically educated, trained, and upskilled.  

“Therefore, as a company that genuinely recognises the importance of CSR, we are delighted to do our part, by offering free training and a great career path to those looking to improve their situation, in what can only be described as the toughest of times.” 

Entrants to the programme will earn professional qualifications and certifications in specialisms such as AWS Cloud, Agile Methodologies, ITILV4 and DevOps.
