A few years ago I answered an advert for an IT technician job with Cerco. They assessed and trained me, then found me regular contract work with large corporate businesses in what can be a difficult industry to get into.
Throughout my time with them they always acted with complete professionalism and honesty. Listening to some of the stories from engineers who had worked with other companies I realised this was why I enjoyed working for them so much and why I would recommend them to anyone starting out as an IT Technician.
Matt Pimble Former Royal Marine, now working in IT in Dubai
After 20 years working within the Telecoms / IT sector. I found myself redundant following a company sale. I applied for a job at Cerco IT and within the week, I was on my first job. The engineers and office staff were incredibly easy to work with. I have never worked with such a professional and honest organisation as Cerco IT, in my time in the industry. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If my circumstances had not changed. I would still be working with them. Either working full time or as a side project.
I would recommend looking into working with Cerco IT.
Chris Hollins
I have to thank Cerco IT for giving me the opportunity to go on the one-week course.
I had no idea at the time it would lead me to a full-time position, working in an area of employment I had wished to achieve years before.

Best regards and many thanks to the Cerco IT HQ team.
Charlie Burns
In such short period of time I gave up a job, I passed two tests, I had a place arranged for a course and I made a promise not to disappoint. Then, I became your employee.
6-7 months later, I have to tell you that it has been a pleasure and an honour to be part of Cerco, and I hope I represented it successfully.
I would also want to thank you for this opportunity (I know it sounds like a cliché), but it’s exactly what it was as it introduced a whole new world to me and it gave me the chance to prove myself. It was a great learning journey and I enjoyed it. Cerco will remain the company I respect and will recommend. Thank you!
Cornelia Graduate
Cerco is a genuine oasis in the IT career debutant’s search.
When I came across Cerco, it took me 2 attempts to qualify for training - and am I glad I persisted!

Supported by first rate administrative, training and recruitment teams, Cerco IT have taken me from zero to confident IT starter in barely 3 months.
My journey started with a totally supported week’s IT course and CV update; A variation of temporary assignments offering confidence-building exposure; and has culminated in being put forward for a job opening which saw me successfully recruited.
I cannot overstate the confidence gained from the Cerco experience.

I really am so positively impacted by the whole team:
  • Ruby and Ella's diligence and warmth
  • Ian's superb IT training
  • Keiron, Catherine and Katherine's approachability and guidance
  • Becky's confidence-inspiring support during the job application / interview process

I first heard about Cerco at an employment fair in Bristol. The information about the training given gave me an irresistible opportunity to move into a field I have always been interested in. Whilst the courses available through other providers give qualifications they do not offer the opportunity to use the skills in the field.
The application process was straightforward and the pre-course information gave me the boost that, even though I had a fairly sound knowledge of computers before, I would not only learn a lot but that it would also be challenging.
On starting the course the learning curve began slowly but ramped up quite rapidly.
However, due to the high standard of instruction, everybody on the course was able to keep abreast of the material. The practical aspects of the course especially assisted in cementing the theory and, as well as the course material, we were given information the actual role that we would be expected to do in the field.
Stuart Dean Royal Navy
Cerco is an excellent company to work for especially if you are new to / looking to get into IT.
After completing the 5 day course I was immediately placed in a role working all over the UK for a large company carrying out various different jobs with multiple other engineers who are great to work with and will help you out as much as they can whilst you are still learning the role and gaining experience.

I really enjoyed my time with Cerco and the girls in the office were brilliant and very helpful and polite which made my experience with Cerco great, specifically Ruby and Kat.
