Embedded C and C++ development vacancies led us to more engineering assignments in the electronic and mechanical engineering industries. We worked on CNC, mechanical design, electronic design, QA, production and manufacturing management jobs for all sorts of companies. Some made planes, some made actuators, and some made drilling equipment for Oil & Gas and more. So it has been a mix of companies working in different areas of expertise.
Here are a couple of examples of companies we helped to scale up.
EdgeIPK were a software product development and professional services company that specialised in retail banking and insurance. Talent Cluster didn’t help them from day one, but we came in at a critical stage for the business as they needed a lot of Java developers to work on their product and in the professional services team and without them, they would have been in big trouble. We successfully found them experienced Java Developers and testers continuously over two years and project managers, product managers and trainers. Finally, we found them the right staff, which enabled them to sell the product and business to Temenos, the leading global software development company for the Financial Services industry.
We haven’t scaled any engineering companies yet where we have been the sole supplier, but we want to.
We helped many people start their careers in software development and engineering.
The variety of people we have placed in jobs has been huge lots of different characters and people from all over the world.
We were lucky enough to place some candidates with disabilities and individuals whose circumstances differed from the norm.
We built great relationships, which are still going, and we want to do more.
What’s next? That’s the best bit because we plan on helping many more people to get jobs and many more companies to get what they need.
