We have always been passionate about helping graduates launch their career in ERP, and we’re now delighted to announce our formal graduate programme, the CBO Academy, in partnership with the University of Sunderland.
In 2014, we began a pilot programme which resulted in developing 2 highly qualified consultants. They are now fully certified in Epicor ERP 10 and delivering value to customers, working on our support desks and shadowing senior consultants on-site, where they continue to be mentored and coached.
After the success of this pilot scheme, we are launching a formal programme in partnership with the University of Sunderland, who offer the right courses, support and guidance for graduates to start work in our field.
Damien Sullivan, Director at CBO, said:
“We’re excited to be working with the University of Sunderland on this programme. We aim to select candidates not on their ERP skills but rather their aptitude, attitude and having some experience in customer care. We know we can teach them the skills they need as long as they have the right approach.
Our next step will be to sponsor candidates through Degree Level Apprenticeships where they will sit degree courses tailored to our requirements whilst working within our company. We see this as a longer-term path that will provide us with employees who have been brought up with the right skills and approach from the beginning.”
Keen to keep up the momentum, we have already selected a candidate who will be coming on board at the beginning of 2018, and we’re confident we’re growing the consultants of the future, and instilling in them the ethos of growing through customer success.
