Charles Taylor CIO Jason Sahota told CIO UK that it’s imperative to find the right skills in the workforce.
“I’ve been a firm believer in my career that one of the best ways to do that is to grow talent,” says Sahota.
“And now I’ve taken the business to a certain size over the last two and a half years, this year was the first year that we’ve reached a particular size where I want to start bringing in new talent and building and training up that talent moving forward.”
To do this, Charles Taylor InsureTech has launched a three-year graduate programme that offers successful applicants the opportunity to work across a variety of disciplines to develop their skills, with support, mentoring, and training available at every stage
“We’ve pretty much had a 100% acceptance rate on the offers that we’ve sent out, which also gives me confidence that as a new startup business – although we fall within the Charles Taylor family – after two and a half years, we’re now seen as a business that is able to attract new talent that’s coming through,” said Sahota.
