The UK Defence sector accounts for many billions of spend and is probably one of the most complex areas of UK government, spanning all the armed forces, and diversifying into cyber through the advent of the National Cyber Force. Never before has digital, data and cyber been so critical to defending the nation, be that via data capture on big platforms (submarines, aircraft carriers, fighter jets etcâ€¦) or by providing digital tactical support to deployed troops, or through the growth of operational cyber activities to tackle the increasing malevolent cyber threat from international detractors.
To support this we have develop an unrivalled database of candidates with every level of clearance required to support UK MOD projects and programmes. We know and understand the UK Defence landscape and have built unique talent pools of individual talent that can support projects in less well supported locations, driven by where the MOD has to conduct its activities.
Our services are delivered directly to UK MOD clients via approved frameworks, but we also work with a wide range of Defence primes and sub primes, supporting the staffing of projects from the South Coast to Scotland and overseas.
Defence as a sector is a key pillar of what we do, and where we see long term growth, examples of our work are:
- Working collaboratively with a leading private sector supplier to build and integrate a synthetic environment for an MoD customer. This involved building a team consisting of Data Science, Software Design and Development, Test as well as project delivery personnel and BA support. The project was pioneering and from ground up. This was achieved within a six month timescale and provides significant external support to critical infrastructure within MoD.
- Completing on a high priority demand with a US Defence contractor in building a team of Software Engineers and Tech Architects deployable within a four week timescale. In partnership and with clear, defined processes, the objective was achieved ensuring support for their capability on a designated high secure project.
- Providing a solution to MoD directly on supply of DV cleared tech contingent labour. A challenge was identified in the smooth and expedient supply of contingent labour into a digital arena, we worked closely up to 3- Star level to alleviate any blockers hindering effective supply. Successful deployment was achieved across both Delivery roles and Cyber roles over a six month timeframe.
