Join us on our journey to create a world where tech is built by everyone, for everyone.
futureproof is a technology training company, dedicated to launching and developing the tech superstars of the future. We want to create a world where the best talent, regardless of background, will build the tech of tomorrow.
We select the top 2% of talent, training them in full-stack software development and technology fundamentals to prepare them for a two-year placement in tech.
We mentor and coach our associates throughout their placement to ensure they can deliver the right mix of skills and approaches to our clients' businesses.
Our course is free to associates because we believe in ability, not just the ability to pay. The best talent is diverse talent.
It’s at the heart of what we do.
The coming together of people from different backgrounds is at the heart of innovation – it's by working outside of our usual pattern of knowledge and combining our unique life experiences that we develop a greater understanding of the markets and people we are seeking to connect with.
Currently, just 19% of the tech workforce are women, and only 14-15% of the UK tech workforce are from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
Fostering diversity as a core value allows you to build a workforce that is more representative of the UK population and therefore better able to serve its audience’s needs.
Prioritising diversity and inclusion also has a snowball effect on your reputation and attractiveness with new talent.
According to Glassdoor, 67% of job seekers consider workplace diversity to be a key factor when considering opportunities, with more than 50% of current employees expressing a desire for their current workplace to do better as far as diversity is concerned.
In a market as candidate led as the technology sector, this is crucial for staying ahead of the competition and attracting the very best talent.
This is the promise we make to our students, and to the companies we place them in.
