Cloud Technology Solutions wanted to grow

Cloud Technology Solutions (CTS) are a leading international, Google Cloud Premier Partner, providing unique solutions using Google Cloud.

They merged with Dutch data science and machine learning expert Qlouder in 2018 (making them Europe’s largest Google Cloud practice). They wanted to grow their team in the UK, so they wouldn’t have to depend on contractors for niche digital skills.

Upping their Cloud capability – fast

We worked with them to build a programme that would give them 12 certified GCP data engineers.

They chose to grow their team using our 'Accelerate' Solution. Where we recruited, trained and on-boarded talented, technical graduate consultants for them. It was important that we found the right people to join CTS – and gave them the right skills.

We took care of it all

We took care of recruitment – which included running campaigns to attract the right people, and assessing and selecting candidates. As well as delivering all their technical training – so they had the right skills as soon as they started work.

We designed 12 weeks of bespoke Google Cloud training. 12 graduates attended our residential programme. They worked onsite at CTS as their permanent employees.

And we present…12 certified GCP data engineers

As a result of working together, CTS grew their cloud capability in the UK quickly. Now they’re able to retain knowledge, skills and experience (which wasn’t possible when using contractors).

They were impressed with the GCP Engineers that joined them – who exceeded their expectations.

James Doggart, CEO at CTS says:

“A key priority for us as we continue to expand is to recruit exciting young talent that can lay the foundations for the future of the company. This commitment is the reason why we’re currently the only fully dedicated Google Cloud partner that operates a full graduate scheme. Working in the tech sector, it’s imperative that you never stand still. We’re always looking to strengthen our talent base and ensure that we’re adding new skills in a range of different disciplines to the business. It’s this attitude that allows us to remain agile and adaptable as new innovation and technology reaches the market. The whole team is very excited to welcome this new group of ambitious young individuals and see them play a key role in the driving the company forward and shaping its future.”
