Crowned 'Best Place to Work in IT'
It’s been an outstanding few months for Rob Dance our CEO. Not only was he recently crowned as the IOD Wales’s Young Director of the Year, but in October, RockIT was awarded the Fast Growth 50 award for Sustainable growth, setting a new internal record of five consecutive years of growth. The highlight for this year however, is that we are delighted to announce that we have also been awarded as Best Place to Work in IT at the UK IT Industry Awards.
“This award win hasn’t just happened overnight. It’s the accumulative effect of employing the right people, with the right attitude, that all help to shape the company, drive improvements and implement the internal business initiatives that have helped to place RockIT as such a formidable employer.” - Rob Dance CEO
Equally, attributed to our ability to secure such rewarding accolades is the excellent talent that we are able to source on our doorstep. It’s fair to say that South Wales is a hub for thriving technology and therefore, our location plays a big part in being able to source highly skilled and knowledgeable individuals that provide a breadth of experience for our work force. It’s these people that make RockIT such a fantastic place to work, thriving with opportunity that’s equally matched by our passion to do well.
These are just some of the comments, from the people that make this company so great – its employees.
"Progression is an important part of your career at RockIT, and unlike in other companies, it is actually achievable!" - Kim – PA to the CEO
"Rob often goes about things his way, with the confidence and conviction to question anything conventional and if required, plot a different path. Annoyingly, he’s often right!" – Ashley – Development Director
"Rob has personally provided advice and encouragement which has developed me as a manager. Without Rob, I would not have been given the career progression of recent months." – Jamie – AST Department Manager
"Rob could see my potential and where my skills could be utilised and took the chance on me, and coming to work here was the best thing I have ever done." – Billie – Talent Department Manager
"This company is on its way to greatness and it is getting there fast!! Thank you for being such a great employer." – Emily – HR Officer
"Since I started things have gone from strength to strength, but I am most impressed with support from our team managers, both with process and technical issues." – Spencer – FRT Engineer
These views are shared throughout the company, mainly because RockIT is a vibrant work environment, where so much emphasis is placed on our ‘People’. We know that happy people deliver a great service, and so we make it our life mission to provide our people with an environment full of opportunity, where they can have fun, flourish and grow with the business. It’s because of our focus on individual progression, that so many employees see us as the best place to start or springboard their career.
