Grayce and Collaboraite partner to inject in-demand data skills into digital transformation programmes
Grayce and Collaboraite’s collaboration will enable both parties to support customers on a wider scale
Emerging tech talent management consultancy, Grayce, has announced its new partnership with the growing data and digital consultancy, Collaboraite, to help tackle the UK’s growing tech skills shortage. As emerging technologies such as Machine Learning increasingly dominate, the partnership will see Grayce provide Analysts under its Data+ programme to fuel Collaboraite’s ability to help organisations build their data and Agile delivery capabilities. The collaboration will unlock cost-effective resource solutions with a long-term talent pipeline for Collaboraite’s customers while offering Grayce’s Analysts’ the support of expert leaders in leading complex programs through Collaboraite.
As emerging technology advances, many businesses across all sectors and regions have been keen to invest in digital capabilities such as Agile, Cloud, AI and Machine Learning to help evolve their operations and business analytical abilities. However, with technology innovating at speed, the UK is facing a growing technical skills gap, with almost half of businesses struggling to recruit specific roles requiring data skills, threatening innovation growth in the UK.
Working together, Grayce and Collaboraite will work to help the emerging workforce gain critical data skills and businesses in their journey to becoming digital-first. Their partnership will allow Grayce’s graduates to gain valuable experience working in data under highly experienced technology leaders. Meanwhile, Collaboraite will gain a pipeline of fresh and diverse talent to help deliver the consulting needs for clients looking to invest in data technologies.
This customer-centric partnership allows Grayce to build on its Data+ offering, a three-year data-focussed Development Programme that develops skills in Data Science, Data Engineering, Architecture and BI and Analytics through extensive training and client-facing work with Grayce’s partners. It comes at a time when the demand for data skills is increasing.
Matt Stagg, CEO of Collaboraite, commented: “We are thrilled to partner with Grayce at such a vital time for the technology industry. Data skills are in increasingly high demand due to emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and we’ve seen a huge ask from clients to expand into data-related technologies. Grayce will offer us the necessary resources to help us continue our commitments to deliver innovative, client-focused consulting that will be even more time and cost-effective for our clients. At the same time, we are delighted to be able to help propel new talent into fulfilling, successful careers in the industry through the right support.”
Amy Gornall, Strategic Growth Manager at Grayce, concluded: “One of our most important values at Grayce is “We are human, and we care”. At Grayce, we are here to help our graduates gain relevant experience in meaningful jobs and welcoming environments.
