Long-term unemployed? Meet FIT at Jobs Expo Cork

FIT: Fastrack into IT

We are delighted to announce that FIT will be exhibiting at Jobs Expo Cork.

If you are long-term unemployed, finding work can feel hopeless. It does not need to be. FIT is an industry-led initiative committed to transforming the lives of marginalised jobseekers and disadvantaged communities. They do this through their innovative ICT training courses. The initiative works in close collaboration with a number of bodies. Their primary partners in education and training include:

  • SOLAS
  • Educational Training Boards (ETBs, formerly VEC)
  • Third-Level Institutions
  • Leargas
  • National Training Agencies
  • Community Organisations
  • Leader Companies
  • Rapid Coordinators
  • Local Authorities
  • Employment Pacts

Supporting at-risk people and communities

FIT supports jobseekers at risk of, or already experiencing, long-term unemployment. They also work with early school leavers from disadvantaged communities.

As a result, they support the socio-economic transformation of marginalised jobseekers and disadvantaged communities. Firstly, they do this through offering innovative ICT training courses as a gateway to employment. FIT also develops and promotes technology-based programmes as well as career development opportunities. These are for jobseekers who have become detached from the labour market since Ireland has moved towards a knowledge-based economy.

Technologies now permeate across all industry sectors. Consequently, their work is now more crucial than ever. Therefore the initiative ensures that all jobseekers have the necessary skills to compete for new opportunities as they emerge.

Successfully assisting jobseekers

Established in 1999, FIT is a registered charity as well as a not-for-profit organisation. Since then, they have expanded substantially and now operate across the Republic of Ireland. In addition, they have recently commenced programmes in Northern Ireland under the banner FIT-NI.

To date, over 16,000 job seekers have completed their skills development programmes. Of this, in excess of 12,500 progressed into employment. Currently, 3,500 job seekers are participating in their programmes.

Recently the EU Commission cited FIT as one of the most effective employability initiatives in Europe.

What’s it like to work for Aspira? We have answers!

Aspira

Jobs Expo sat down with Clodagh Geary of Aspira to find out what working for the company is like. Aspira will be recruiting at Jobs Expo in Cork. They are an award-winning Irish company with global reach. Aspira have offices in Dublin and Cork, and offer consultancy and IT services to companies around the world. Their clients include AIB, Coillte, DePuy Synths, EirGrid, ESB and Electric Ireland and Laya Healthcare.

You have offices in Dublin and Cork. Are you recruiting for both?

Aspira have clients all over Ireland, and also in the UK, USA and Europe. Some of our team work directly on site with clients, while most work from our offices in Dublin and Cork. We have technical IT and Project Management roles to fill in both locations. In addition, given our geographic spread of clients we also want to hear from people who enjoy travel and would like to work in different locations.

Describe a typical day in the office?

A typical day depends on your role. We try to keep people focused on one project at a time. If you are a software developer, you might spend three to six months focused on designing a system or application and then developing and testing that solution for release to a client. If you are a project manager, you will focus on whatever is going on at that stage of the project. However, if you are working in a general operations role, then you need to multi-task! You could be meeting clients, writing proposals, attending trade shows, delivering consultancy, reviewing tenders, selecting vendors – you name it! We have a very diverse business environment! We try to match the roles to people’s preferences. Some people love to focus on a single project and get into the zone, whereas others enjoy the variety that comes with multi-tasking.

Other than skills, what are the qualities you look for when hiring new team members?

In addition to qualifications and certifications, we have a set of core competencies that we look for in our people. These are intelligence, professionalism, work ethic, initiative, attention to detail, ability to communicate and teamwork. To us, these qualities are more important than experience using a particular set of tools. This is because smart, committed people will quickly learn new tools. We also like to complement our team with diverse cultures and a clear view of our common company objectives.

What can new hires expect during their first week?

We have an induction programme. This takes people through the company’s structure, mission, values, culture and so forth. Then we assign a mentor to the new hire so that he/she has somebody that they can informally approach with any questions. The mentor takes responsibility for the new hire and ensures he or she is being looked after.

As a project management specialist company, it is important that we live up to our standards. The small things are important – things like ensuring the new hire has their accounts set up in advance, has a desk, and has a laptop. It never ceases to amaze me how some companies leave their new hires hanging around for weeks while they ‘find’ them a laptop or give them email or internet access! We aim to get people to be productive quickly, as the best way to learn and integrate with the team is to take on some real tasks and deliverables.

Is there anything many new hires find challenging when they first start with Aspira?

We are not a hierarchical company. I think this is great! We encourage everybody to express their opinion and to challenge things. Nobody is ever told “it’s not your place to say that.” However, I know that some people who have joined us, coming from more rigid hierarchical background, have taken a while to ‘get’ this. Our CEO encourages us to tell him if his ideas are rubbish. Of course, you then need to explain why, and ideally have a better idea ready to propose!.

What makes Aspira a great place to work?

Three things – the client focus, the expertise of the team, and the wide range of services. There is intense focus on identifying and meeting client needs. This makes it a very enjoyable place to work. Since our clients really appreciate our services, it makes it a pleasure rather than a chore. The people working in Aspira are seriously smart and have loads of experience. Furthermore, the culture encourages sharing of ideas and bouncing questions and theories off each other. This makes it a very engaging and learning experience. Finally the range of services is huge. This means people don’t get pigeonholed into a particular narrow role. Instead they have the chance to get involved in lots of different areas. I think you gain as much experience in one year with Aspira as you would in five years in another multinational.

What about opportunities for advancement?

There’s a lot of emphasis placed upon learning and development. Aspira encourages and supports people in gaining professional accreditation and certifications. We are a training company as well! There is also a culture of promoting from within wherever possible. Because Aspira has been consistently growing, there is a lot of career opportunity for people. That’s not just to become a manager, but also to take on more senior technical roles. Some companies force people down the managerial route in order to advance their careers, but Aspira has a twin track, covering both managerial and technical roles.

What do you enjoy most about your own job?

Aspira have enabled me to take a broader view of my own skill set. I previously worked for system integrators and resourcing companies. Because of my skills in that particular area, and the ability for that type of business to be a high revenue earner, I was left to run that type of division and churn numbers for the rest of the organisation. I am much more involved in every level of the company, and hope that my own input has helped us achieve the growth of the organisation, not just through placing consultants on projects.

Most of us have had at least one interview that didn’t go according to plan. Have you ever messed up a job interview yourself? If so, could you tell us about it?

Once, I was part of a group interview. A panel interviewed two of us. I noticed my co-interviewer starting to act strangely. It turned out that years earlier she had been in the army and had worked with one of the interview panel him in the army. Unfortunately, back then she submitted a complaint that ultimately led to the interviewer being dismissed from the army and turning to civilian life. When both parties realised who the other was, it was obvious there was not going to be a job offer. I could not get out of that room fast enough.  Awkward!

Is there anything else you’d like potential recruits to know?

Aspira is a company that treats people with respect. There is also a great culture where people work hard and have fun. There are a lot of people here who have been here since the company set up ten years ago. They are enjoying the recent plans for even larger future growth. They like that new staff members enjoy the consistent values and culture that we have promoted from day one. The newer approach to aligned objectives, and a gentle introduction to a more structured organisational chart has been received well.

There is a great bonus, working for a training company! Particularly in relation to career development from a technical perspective. Newer recruits are surrounded by some seriously talented technical people, who are happy to share their knowledge. We adapt the same approach with clients, always looking to share and adopt a skills and knowledge transfer approach to our engagements. Having strong partnerships with Microsoft and Dell, and other great technology leaders gives our staff access to a wide arrange of courses and certification opportunities. For the PMs and BAs, we encourage them to follow PMP, CBAP or Prince 2 certifications. Careers don’t stand still at Aspira!
