Alchemy Technology Services five-week training programme will offer employment training for 20 participants hoping to make their mark in the technology industry.
The Alchemy Technology Services Assured Skills Academy, funded by the Department for the Economy and delivered in conjunction with North West Regional College (NWRC), offers industry-relevant pre-employment training and upon successful completion of the course participants are guaranteed a job interview with Alchemy Technology Services.
Director of Skills at the Department for the Economy, Graeme Wilkinson believes this is an excellent opportunity to gain skills that are in demand. He explained: “This latest Assured Skills Academy with Alchemy Technology Services will equip participants with the skills to become a Technical Analyst or Business Analyst in a fast-growing sector. Those who complete the course will gain an industry-recognised qualification and be ready to compete for a job.”
Mr Wilkinson continued: “Last year we successfully delivered training for over 400 individuals through Assured Skills Academies. The Programme has been a great success in delivering the skills that are required in our local economy. This success has largely been due to the partnership approach with businesses, Further Education colleges and Universities.”
Successful participants will be working in Alchemy’s centre of excellence for Digital Transformation in the global insurance market, with the potential for significant travel opportunities.
Anne O’Neill, HR Manager at Alchemy Technology Services, said: “Our first four Assured Skills Academies were very successful in bringing through people that we could employ and set on a fulfilling career path. With the support of the Department, we are delighted to be offering 20 more high quality training places in the North West.
“Our previous Academy graduates are already working on significant global projects with our clients and have travelled across the UK, wider Europe, the US and South Africa.
“This is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to enter the insurance technology sector and we look forward to welcoming successful applicants into the Academy.”
