QA connects businesses with individuals skilled in the latest Microsoft technology. Our Recruit-Train-Deploy talent model is a unique hiring solution for businesses. We recruit the highest calibre technically-minded consultant candidates (through predictive A.I. screening, telephone discussions, face-to-face interviews and technical assessments) and train them via our unique BCS-accredited academy.
By handling all recruitment, training and administration, QA reduces your risks and costs of hiring, helps your business overcome any skills gaps, and enables you to rapidly scale your Microsoft-project delivery capability. Following deployment, we ensure your consultant continues to develop and learn and we provide you with the flexibility to convert the consultant to permanent staff.
