Myriad IT is one of four Microsoft business partners that has signed up to the YouthSpark Career Pathways pilot program.
Non-profit organisation, Infoxchange, and Microsoft recently teamed up to create YouthSpark IT Career Pathways aimed to address the IT skills gap and give young people who face significant barriers to employment, their first step towards an IT career.
Myriad IT is a Melbourne-based company that provides end-to-end business technology solutions to clients in Australasia, Asia, Europe and North America.
According to the company, this marks an exciting step for its corporate social responsibility, as it will be one of the Microsoft business partners that has signed up to the program to provide graduates with traineeships in their businesses.
The YouthSpark graduating students have completed a nine week program where they gained their Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology at the Microsoft Academy, and are now looking forward to commencing traineeships with the program’s partners.
Myriad IT is currently in the process of recruiting its first graduate from the program who will be joining Myriad IT as a junior support resource in its infrastructure services team.
“We are thrilled to have Myriad IT onboard with YouthSpark and we look forward to seeing what the future brings,” Infoxchange said, in a statement.
