Kickstart Programme

We are pleased to announce the approval by the DWP into the Government Kickstart Programme. We will be forming a partnership with The Graduate Project (TGP) who will support us in finding suitably qualified candidates that fall into the criteria for the programme and guide us through the steps we need to follow to ensure we make a success of this initiative.
 
We see the kickstart programme as a great mechanism for young people to start their career, we will be offering some great roles that we believe candidates will be able to grow into and have the freedom to develop their talent.
 
We are excited at the prospect of what the next generation of graduates and school leavers can bring to our business, with new up to date ideas, enthusiasm and creativity and from our business perspective where they will be able to express their ideas and expand their knowledge.  
 
We have a lot to learn ourselves as we coach and develop this group into the ways of business life and give them a good start in the working world and the ways of working.
 
A key to the success that we have had and what we will drive into this new team falls under the ethos of our business which is to do interesting and challenging work to support our customers and build our business, but more importantly to have fun and enjoy the work experience.
 
We look forward to welcoming our new candidates over the coming weeks. If you know of anyone or have a family member that fall into the category to be part of the kickstart programme we would be very happy to hear from you. Please drop us a message through our website in the first instance and we can then progress from there.

Data Strategy & Architecture

The need for an organisation to have a Data Strategy is primarily driven by recent and ongoing changes in regulation with increasing global quality and ownership standards being set for data. The approach that regulators are taking are onerous on businesses today and especially within the Financial Services sector, with acts such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation – EU law 2016/679), the Banking Executive Accountability Regime (BEAR in Australia), the Senior Manager Regime in the UK and similar requirements from the Monetary Authority of Singapore meaning that senior executives are now personally accountable for customer/client data and the security and quality of such data.

We are seeing that the key business objectives for most financial organisations are :

Getting out of the “red” regulatory obligations and gaining an adequate level of compliance

Being compliant with local and global Regulatory bodies which now includes sign off on quality of data

Consistency of Data

Consistency of propagation of Data and associated governance

Customer data aggregation to manage risk holistically across all product offerings

Real Time Data Capabilities and lowering technology costs (using SAAS, microservices and Cloud)

There has been an explosion in the number of data platforms with examples such as Hadoop, NoSQL databases and Analytics pipelines that support massive amounts of data for storage and processing.

There is an evolution and progression to data storage which utilises the concept of a data lake. This is an extension to the concept of a Data Warehouse that stores data from both structured and unstructured data sources (such as social media feeds, weblogs, sensor data from IOT devices etc) which can allow the necessary governance and quality aspects of data management to be addressed as well as providing a rich data source for Analytics.
