Our embedded performance management process plays an important role in supporting colleagues’ personal development opportunities, while providing role purpose and clarity.
Career paths guide options and our commitment to internal mobility and the open approach to vacancies support our ambition to retain our talented teams and enhance careers within the Group.
In FY23, 504 colleagues were promoted to more senior roles and 64 colleagues took up new roles within the organisation. Across our global operations, over 500 new colleagues joined NCC Group.
We actively encourage mentorship within the organisation, with formal and informal agreements in place across the organisation. Our global delivery community are actively encouraged and supported by senior technical experts to their reports on our dedicated technical blog. This mentorship programme is critical not only for their development, but also plays an important role in the broader security community.
We are in the process of developing our new management development programme which will ensure our managers have the right skills and behaviours to effectively lead their teams in the future.
Developing the next generation of talent
Since 2013, we’ve welcomed over 200 colleagues into our Next Generation Talent Programme, which has gained industry recognition including the 2017 Job Crowd Top 100 companies to work for in the “IT Development and Consulting” category. In 2022, we received over 700 applications for 40 places across our global operations.
We are an industry partner with the UK Government’s CyberFirst scheme with representation on the advisory board and colleagues across the UK getting involved to support various activities in local schools. This also includes providing summer placements and bursaries to students going through the scheme.

By investing in our people, we will position ourselves as a market leader in cyber security, delivering effective solutions for our clients – always looking forward, using our insight, innovation and intelligence to meet the most complex of cyber security challenges head on.
We will continue to contribute to the broader challenge- beyond individual client challenges- by engaging and collaborating with regulatory bodies, governments and industry organisations, participating in discussions on cyber security policy, and raising awareness of cyber threats.
