ServiceNow, a leading digital workflow company that makes the world work better for everyone, has announced that it is working with Lloyds Banking Group as part of its NextGen Professionals Programme. Three participants who have recently completed the programme have accepted job offers from Lloyds Banking Group.
NextGen addresses the talent shortages currently faced by companies and helps participants carve a path towards long-term employment from communities that are typically excluded from the workforce. Supported by customers and partner companies like Lloyds Banking Group, the initiative generates employment opportunities for the digital workforce of today and tomorrow. Another partner includes the Refugee Council, an organisation working with refugees and asylum seekers to provide support and advice and help refugees navigate the barriers of entering the UK labour market.
The participants come through to the programne via a number of partner initiatives. One is the Skills Bootcamp, running in partnership with The Department for Education and New College of Humanities, a member of Northeastern University’s Global Network.
NextGen has been designed to focus on assisting candidates that have been traditionally marginalised by the technology industry. By its end, candidates are certified with a suite of new digital skills that can help them land a new role in the digital economy.Click below to share this article
