We are delighted to announce that alongside Academy, a leading provider of technology training programmes, SIS Academy has officially launched and is providing opportunities for those looking to pursue a career in technology.

The collaboration kicked off this week from our HQ in Milton Keynes, and saw the 12 aspiring individuals begin their new careers as Academy Software Engineers, Academy Software QAs and Academy Business Analysts.

In a bid to diversify the SIS workplace, no prior computer science experience or qualifications were needed. Academy carried out a rigorous process to identify the top five per cent of candidates, ensuring highly skilled individuals continue to enhance the company’s products and services.

Over the next 15 weeks, expert instructors from SIS will lead the selected cohort through an immersive course where they will upskill in software engineering, data, cloud technologies and leadership.

On successful completion of the course, candidates will then move into their chosen role of Software Engineer, Software QA, or Business Analyst, where further room for growth and career development will be made available.

Julian Wheeler, Chief Technology Officer at SIS, said:

“Congratulations to the 12 selected candidates who will embark on the SIS Academy programme. We hope it will lead to a long and fruitful career within the company as we continue to innovate our leading products and services.

“In developing advanced software to automate TV production and real time data processing for events, we are providing the opportunity to bring in an entire graduate intake, take them through training together, and then embed the new cohort alongside our experienced development teams.”
