In a fast moving world businesses need to be future-proof which means employing cutting-edge technology and the best people. Doris finds talent that is smart, innovative and ambitious - they stay ahead of the curve. IT has never been more vital, and next generation business talent never more in demand.
Today’s young people are tech-savvy and capable. Doris knows that if you give them an opportunity to succeed they will. We recruit straight from school and university and we also love smart applicants with experience who are currently under-employed and not fulfilling their potential.
Training and mentoring these dynamic young people within a work environment doesn’t just benefit them; it benefits the customers bottom line. At Doris, we understand that through a process of ongoing mentoring, training and development from industry experts, we can continually supply the brightest and best new recruits to re-vitalise the world of IT and business.
We place our employees on assignment directly into successful organisations, where it matters most, integrated within our customer teams, delivering key business objectives. We create lasting relationships and ongoing opportunities. We drive productivity in line with today’s economic challenges. In a nutshell, Doris is refreshing the world of IT.
IT doesn’t have to be complicated. Doris was born out of our simple commitment to provide a better service for our customers. By focusing on people, our small team of directors are experts in matching the right skills with the right opportunities.
We set up Doris in 2012 with two main objectives:
We are very proud to say that we have placed over 100 employees and apprentices within our now global client base.
Hopefully our website will tell you more about our wonderful people, as well as the significant contributions they are making to the companies in which we work.
From my initial meeting with Doris I was bowled over by their professionalism, the very high calibre of their trainees and their passion for making a difference to the lives of unemployed or under-employed but highly talented young people.
Our apprentices have been in role for a short time and are already delivering value on real projects and are beginning to show what they can offer to their wider teams.
Entrepreneurs are solid job creators and in the UK there is a national skills shortage, particularly in the IT sector. We have joined forces with Doris and in the last 12 months have taken on a number of graduates, across a variety of roles. These are exceptional skills and fresh minds that many other small to medium sized businesses in this country are missing out on.
I was very impressed with the quality of the shortlisted candidates that Doris provided and the speed with which they were able to respond to our need. Ruth was just right for the role and is doing a fantastic job for the organisation.
We are delighted to be working with Doris on this exciting project. We are inspired by the work Doris does to help young people launch their IT careers. Now we have a partnership in place that can provide the support these youngsters need as they strive to become the next generation of IT experts.
It also means we can help our customers to not only save costs but also contribute to the wiser social responsibility agenda in the North-West
In the time that we have worked with Doris IT, I have rapidly seen the energy, enthusiasm and talent that represents their difference. Working in highly technical areas and exceeding my high expectations, I have to applaud Doris and a big well done to Paul, Martin, Chris, Adrian and Aaron
It's great to work with a values based business that offers exceptional capability at lower cost. We are working together to build meaningful careers for young people who have delivered for us from day one.
Our IT Apprentices are vital members of the Shop Direct Team and we are privileged to have a team of Doris mentors supporting us who are passionate about our business and driven to achieve success for our mutual benefit. Our Apprenticeship Scheme is a critical element of our people strategy and we’re proud to say you're hired!
We saw very quickly that Doris’ passion for developing people underpins and gives balance to all the amazing technical training that these young people are given. Doris’ encourage people not only to take responsibility for learning about their own behaviour, but also to incorporate that learning into the way they 'show up at work' every day. It’s a breath of fresh air, which sets them up for future success.
Doris is a shining example of the small businesses who, by working in partnership with e-skills UK are helping to kick-start the UK economy. They are finding, training and inspiring the next generation of IT talent, attracting the right people into the sector; identifying areas where skills are in need; and supporting their learning and development. This is helping to create the technology capability the UK needs for innovation and global competitiveness.
