Recruiting top-tier talent is a crucial challenge for companies seeking to excel in the rapidly evolving digital landscape. In response to this, many organisations have embraced the ‘hire, train, deploy’ model, recognising the importance of nurturing skilled professionals to meet recruitment demands effectively.
A long-term workforce solution, companies that follow the hire, train, deploy approach proactively recruit individuals who exhibit the right attitude, aptitude, and potential to excel as successful consultants. These individuals undergo training tailored to clients’ specific technology requirements or in in-demand industry specialisations. Once the training is completed, these consultants are deployed to work on client sites, filling roles on a contractual basis. There is also the possibility of transitioning to permanent employment after a mutually agreed-upon timeframe. The hire, train, deploy model offers organisations the opportunity to secure the necessary skills, retain emerging talent and intellectual property, and establish a cost-effective talent pipeline.

At _nology, we go beyond this conventional approach with its innovative ‘attract, train, assess, support’ methodology. By prioritising ongoing support during client deployment, _nology ensures both employee success and client satisfaction.

Attracting Exceptional Talent: _nology’s recruitment process begins by casting a wide net to attract exceptional talent. Rather than relying solely on traditional recruitment channels, _nology adopts a comprehensive approach. Actively seeking out talented individuals from various backgrounds, including career switchers, graduates, and those with non-traditional education paths, the talent pool is expanded, ensuring a diverse and dynamic workforce, fostering innovative problem-solving and creativity.

Rigorous Assessment: To guarantee that its employees meet the highest standards, _nology employs a rigorous assessment process. Applicants are assessed through a competency-based, blind CV process and selected based on their mindset and capability rather than education or experience. This includes:

A 3-stage assessment process to gain access to the programme, including a solo interview, aptitude test, and group assessment that involves a JavaScript lesson and group problem-solving activity

2 weeks of pre-course digital learning to cover the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

This assesses key skills like intellectual horsepower, logic, pattern-finding, learning on the fly, perseverance and problem solving which are all necessary to thrive during tech training and employment.

Comprehensive Training: _nology employs top-tier experienced trainers who provide hands-on guidance in the latest technologies and frameworks. _nologists hone their skills working on real-life client projects. This immersive approach equips employees with the knowledge and expertise required to excel in real-world scenarios, ensuring they are ready to hit the ground running. Training includes:

Ongoing Support: Understanding that professional development is a continuous journey, _nology remains dedicated to fostering growth and success beyond the training phase. Employees are paired with mentors who offer guidance, feedback, and support throughout the deployment period. Regular check-ins, performance evaluations, and access to additional training resources further bolster employee development and satisfaction.

Client-Centric Approach: _nology’s ‘attract, train, assess, support’ approach extends beyond employee benefits and positively impacts clients as well. By providing ongoing support, _nology ensures that employees remain engaged, motivated, and productive, leading to superior results for clients. The company’s emphasis on mentorship and support fosters strong relationships between employees and clients, promoting effective communication and collaboration.

In an increasingly competitive market, the ‘attract, train, assess, support’ approach adopted by _nology sets a new standard for talent development and deployment. By attracting exceptional individuals, providing comprehensive training, conducting rigorous assessments, and offering ongoing support, _nology not only equips its employees for success but also ensures optimal client satisfaction.
