Our stable of Foundation Partners is steadily expanding, and their breadth of expertise is astonishing. We were therefore delighted when we learned that IT  recruitment specialists Cerco wanted to come onboard. We warmly welcome you to the fold!

Who are Cerco?

Cerco launched in 1989 as Granada IT Services, initially providing practical courses for candidates looking to start a career in IT. In 2003 they added a recruitment / contract arm enabling them to place trainees directly into fully paid work. From 2010 Cerco evolved to become the business it is today – offering free training and recruitment opportunities to the right candidates and providing a quality, trained workforce to clients. Cerco has more than 30 years of experience as a technical services business and provider of highly motivated, skilled and versatile IT professionals to industry leaders. Amongst their clients they are proud to include BT, Fujitsu, Computacenter, NCR, Bybox, Vista and HP amongst many others. By taking candidates with the best potential, and training them to a high standard in both technical ability and customer service, Cerco can consistently meet the high expectations of its clients nationwide.

Chris Barlow, Managing Director had this to say:

“Since 1989, Cerco has been helping individuals make their way into the IT sector, via a combination of both training and job opportunities through our industry partners. Our recognised training programme assists you in becoming a successful candidate in the IT world, and more recently moving into the cyber security space. Our team of experts are waiting to support you on your journey to IT.”

Thanks for coming on board and supporting the Foundation and what we do, we look forward to working together in the future!
