The Deloitte Business Transformation Academy is seeking new technology talent.
The Department for the Economy, in partnership with Deloitte, is offering 20 places in a new Business Transformation Assured Skills Academy.
The new Academy will provide participants the opportunity to learn valuable and in-demand skills in robotics and cloud engineering, which are becoming increasingly important to the changing world of work.
Training will be provided over eight weeks at Belfast Met, and those who successfully complete the Academy are guaranteed a job interview with Deloitte.
Karen Butler, Head of Talent at Deloitte in Northern Ireland, commented: “This Academy is an exciting way to bring talented individuals, who have little or no technology experience, into the workplace and help us prepare our clients for the future of work.
“The Academy is designed for both those who have recently graduated or have previously worked and are looking to learn new technology skills and want to start a new career with Deloitte.
“The Academy will focus on developing both technical skills and softer skills so we are looking for individuals who are innovative, enjoy working collaboratively and are problem solvers.”
Director of Skills at the Department, Graeme Wilkinson added: “This Business Transformation Assured Skills Academy is an excellent opportunity for people to gain the skills they need to start a career in business technology.
“Academy participants will receive the very best industry-relevant pre-employment training available at Belfast Met, preparing them to compete for a role in this exciting sector.”
Applications are open until Friday February 21. Applicants must have either a 2:2 degree in any discipline, or HND/equivalent in an IT related discipline and must be at least 18 years old. Previous experience is not required.
Academy participants will receive a weekly training allowance of £150 plus travel expenses.
The Deloitte Business Transformation Academy will commence on Monday 23 March and finish on Friday 15 May 2020.
