Who We Are

The Talent Academy is a way for you to offer value to the business and our clients by presenting new ideas and  interacting with our network of experienced practitioners to make things happen.
This is not a scheme where you have to tick pre-determined boxes to progress – this is an opportunity to work with a range of people from your Talent Academy peers to experienced practitioners and founders.

We are practical and professional

We want creativity! If you see an opportunity for change, take it!

We are honest and face things head on

Why the Talent Academy?

We know that there are bright, capable people with diverse skill sets out there who can bring fresh perspectives to help solve the IT problems of today – they just need the opportunity to show it.


We provide you opportunities to:

Get involved with different practices and projects depending on your interests

Complete training and industry standard certifications.

Work with experienced members of our team and learn from them.

Our Values


Focus & Contribute.

Integrity in all we do.


Have a thirst for knowledge and work on continuous self- improvement.

It’s OK not to know, but not OK not to ask


Demonstrate value everyday- take the work seriously, but not yourself.


Challenge ourselves to do the right thing for the client- “we” not “I” or “you” attitude.
