IT Recruitment Firm Invests in its Future with Talent Programme

The main objective of the Future Talent Programme is to recruit, train and retain our own future recruiters

With VIQU’s continued focus on developing knowledgeable recruitment consultants, and the IT and Cyber Security industry spend estimated to increase from 16 billion to 1.6 trillion globally, we made the strategic decision to launch our Future Talent Programme this year.

The main objective of the Future Talent Programme is to recruit, train and retain our own future recruiters. At VIQU, we’re passionate about continually developing Expert 2 Expert recruitment consultants that can give our clients and candidates the best service possible.

So, we began the Future Talent Programme journey with the appointment of Bobby Banerjee, a learning and development specialist, with a breadth of experience as a special technical recruitment consultant. His passion for sharing ethical, customer-focused recruitment skills and his belief in VIQU’s vision for supporting individuals who are extremely knowledgeable about their specific sector, gave us confidence that Bobby was the right individual to lead this programme successfully.

“I am passionate about creating an environment and culture, different to other recruitment agencies, where we concentrate on developing recruitment experts – truly knowledgeable people that can visibly add value to their candidates and clients. Being able to own the whole process and seeing some great people grow into successful consultants, is what I thrive on.” – Bobby Banerjee

The first group of trainees going through the Future Talent Programme are called Amar, Léa, Dharam, Nathaniel and Phoebe. They started their careers at VIQU a couple of weeks ago and they’re already gaining positive feedback from the wider team after securing multiple interviews by the second week and an offer by the fourth.

Our first group of trainees are expected to be in the programme for 6-9 months until they’re ready to move over to the main team, where they’ll specialise in exciting markets, such as Cryptocurrency Systems, Digital Forensics, Data Privacy and Ethical Hacking.

“In order to meet our ambitious growth plans, we wanted to start gaining, training and retaining our own trainee recruiters. Bobby is one of the most respected L&D leaders in our industry, so there was no better individual to appoint and ensure the success of the Future Talent Programme. Our new colleagues have made a huge impact already and we will shortly commence interviewing for our second wave of trainees!” – Matt Collingwood
