We Are...

sure that talented young people are the future of IT services. Through training, mentoring and employment we work to create the next generation of IT, Business and Digital professionals


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.

This is Us

With over 25 years of IT and business experience, we each know more than a thing or two when it comes to developing IT talent.

Our Customers

Our customers are forward thinking and recognise the benefits of employing and developing young people, using the Doris approach to find and keep the best talent. Here's how they find working with us...

The Co-operative Group

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.

Matthew Greaves, Programme Director.

eg Solutions

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.

Elizabeth Gooch MBE, Founder & President


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.

Dave Gough, IT Director


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

Lisa McGuinness, Corporate Accounts Director

The Co-operative Bank

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

The Corporate & Executive Coaching Organisation

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.
