Otta's take on Multiverse

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

The skills required in the workplace are changing as more companies become technology-focused. Digital marketing, software engineering, product design and data analysis are the careers of the future.

No longer do you have to go to university to learn these skills. Coding schools (such as Makers Academy and General Assembly) have shown that you no longer need a Computer Science degree to be a software engineer.

Apprenticeships are very suitable as an alternative pathway to prepare young people with career-relevant skills. The government has recognised this and introduced a levy in 2016 that forces companies to invest in apprentices. Multiverse (formally WhiteHat) timed its launch perfectly, using the introduction of the levy to ignite excitement around apprenticeships.

It has previously been voted ‘Training Provider of the Year’ by apprentices, and partners with leading companies like Google, Facebook and BP to match apprenticeships with incredible career opportunities. Over 1,000 young people apply to join Multiverse’s programme each week, and its using its substantial fundraises to expand throughout the UK.

Diversity & Inclusion at Multiverse

Siobhan Randell headshot

Siobhan Randell (Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion)

  • We want to be a leader in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), so we’re working hard to drive the change we want to see in the world, inside Multiverse.
  • Everything we do in the DEI space is undertaken with the goal of being representative of the geographies in which we operate – and our apprentice community. Gender diversity has been a long-term challenge for the tech world. We're proud that 55% of our UK Team identify as women, this increases to 64% of our Global Leadership Team (director level and above). We're also proud of our thriving LGBTQQIAAP community, comprising 11% of our UK Team.
  • We're committed to improving the diversity of our workforce, at all levels. We continue to invest in early talent through our in-house apprenticeship scheme – something we know is a fantastic route into our organization for exceptional talent from a diversity of backgrounds.
  • Last year we identified improving the diversity of our Global Leadership Team (director level+) internally as an area of focus. Steps that we took included introducing robust DEI monitoring processes, rolling out Inclusive Recruitment Training to all staff involved in the hiring, and launching our first internal, Global Leadership Accelerator program.
  • We’re proud that in the last 12 months, the representation of colleagues from ethnic minority backgrounds at director+ levels, globally, has increased from 6% to 19%. This is good progress but we still have work to do and are committed to building a leadership team that is representative of our colleagues and of the communities we serve.
