Case Studies

  • Name: Catriona McGlynn

It’s been an exciting experience to see how a data team functions first hand, and to be able to play a meaningful part in it. In my current project, I get to be involved with data virtualisation and creating an API. I’ve especially enjoyed the insight I’ve had into the technical architecture of the project. Thanks to the team here at Digital Futures, I felt like I was set up for success. The collaboration between Digital Futures and the client partner has provided me with a strong support network in helping me to achieve my goals. With these strong foundations in place, I look forward to developing my skills as an engineer and to continue learning in my current role.

  • Name: Jarod Wilson

Digital Futures continue to develop and enhance my technical skills by sourcing and providing courses relevant to the projects I work on to ensure I deliver high quality work for our client, as well as offering the opportunity to obtain certifications in addition to the ones I have already been supported to achieve. Through regular one-to-one meetings with my engagement manager, I am able to provide updates as to how things are going, as well as share any concerns or problems I might have. We also have larger meetings with my fellow engineers deployed at the same organisation to stay connected, hear how they are getting on and share any useful information.Thanks to Digital Futures, my leap into a career in data has been extremely rewarding, and I am excited to see where my journey will take me.

  • Name: Pranay Alamalakala

My training with Digital Futures played a critical role in preparing me for this role – I am able to apply the theories and concepts I learned in a practical setting. Digital Futures continue to support me with upskilling, check-ins, regular development opportunities and access to a supportive community of alumni and trainers to help me continue growing professionally and achieve my career goals. Digital Futures provided me with an opportunity to upskill and make a career transition, which I believe has been the best decision of my professional life so far. I am so grateful for the opportunity and feel well-prepared to take on new challenges and continue to grow in my role.

  • Name: Raluca Dragomir

The first thing that excited me about Digital Futures was the mission statement. It seemed like the perfect place to get the skills I needed to break into the tech world. The application process was also amazing. At that point I was so used to lengthy application processes that took hours to complete. But applying to Digital Futures was fast and the process focused on my skills and thinking rather than my lack of experience. The Academy was challenging and rigorous, with loads of things to learn in just 12 weeks. However, it was also one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had. The instructors were extremely supportive, and my peers were amazing. I still keep in touch with friends I made in the Academy! My favourite part was getting to work on fun projects with amazing people and get to bond with them.

  • Name: Shivam Sheth

The decision to start a career in tech has been wonderful for me; I am learning new skills every day and solving interesting problems. It has met all my expectations of work and has me excited to start each day! When moving client side there was a lot of support from Digital Futures. The Engagement Team met with me multiple times to make sure I was settling in and that I was developing professionally. I am glad I’ve ended up in a live service role, I think it suits me really well. The cross-disciplinary nature of the job allows me to apply the software, data and cloud architectural skills I learnt in the Academy and to improve them. The attention I was given in my starting weeks and months helped me to feel comfortable navigating this system. The work I do in the public sector has a positive impact on the whole country and is something I can take pride in!
