“Having served for 5 years in the Army often working with IT daily, I knew that I had transferable skills. Having not had a civilian job before I was apprehensive as to how things would pan out. If employers would want to take me on, and how I would fit in?
Cerco enabled me by inviting me to an initial assessment day, ran by Dan who made everyone feel at ease. Cerco provided an in-depth day and concluding in a 90-minute practical exam designed to see what level of IT people possessed.
30 minutes after the assessment I was sat down for an informal chat with one of the account managers, who provided me with a job offer. I couldn’t believe I had just been offered a job. Cerco’s process which included doing a lot of legwork regarding job applications really made things easy and trouble free for me. From not knowing what the future held, to the end of the day being offered a competitive job at a huge IT firm is a testament to Cerco and the way that they operate.”
Cerco IT as a whole genuinely changed my aspects in life, under no obligation at all they secured me a perm role without any hesitation and before doing there course. Leanne and the HR team made everything a breeze when I was told I had an interview and then to follow the job it was surreal, the feeling of accomplishment was all owed to Leanne.
There one week course is the best course I have attended in a long time Dan was a fantastic teacher along with an immense knowledge in all IT installations, software and hardware, Dan made the week as entertaining and humours but cramming as much knowledge in as possible. Hats off to Dan!
Being military I found Cerco at an employment day they offered a range of work opportunities for a FREE course.
If it weren’t for Cerco IT I wouldn’t be in a dream job as I am now Thank you so much I cannot recommend them enough!
“Cerco IT provided an enjoyable course experience and lead me to various contract employment opportunities initially, then leading to my first permanent job since leaving the Army. The Account Managers are a pleasure to deal with providing job support when needed, always in touch about more opportunities.

“Cerco have acknowledged my previous IT skills, gained from the Armed Forces and have helped me get on the IT ladder in the civilian World. Cerco have put me in a great position where I am increasing my IT knowledge everyday”
Working with Cerco has been amazing. It’s very good company to work with especially for beginners to learn IT and Networking. As beginner you will get loads of confidence.
“I had been out of the IT world for 14 years with Cerco IT’s help I am now back in the thick of it. I passed an online test and then completed a five-day course at Crewe, the trainers and staff were friendly and helpful and the course was well run. After a short time Cerco IT arranged my first interview. I am now enjoying my first contract job. It’s great to be back, thank you Cerco IT.”
My work with Cerco IT so far has been great. Considering It had been a long time (10years) since I working in IT. Apart from doing an Engineering MSc 3 years ago. Cerco has made it easier for me to pick up where I left from and more. I have been able to dust up my tool box and get back on the job so quickly. The one-week training was intensive but very useful for someone to pick up the skills and update with what’s current on the market today. All the Engineers that I have been paired with on the job have been very helpful and at the same time let me get on with the job without patronising. The account managers are very good when it comes to matching Engineers with the jobs. I was sent out on a job on my own and did very well through I felt it was nervous to start with. Cerco has helped me build my confidence back and I feel ready to take on bigger projects.
“My experience with CERCO IT has been wonderful. Only few days after I started my training with them, I have been offered an interview, A week later I started working on my first contract. Working for CERCO IT gave me the opportunity to get to know different area in the IT industry and for one. I consider them great professionals, especially Maha, a person who really cares for the well-being of the people who work in her charge.”
Regarding the work with Cerco I would first like to say how good communication is.
Whenever I had doubts or query’s regarding work, I always receive an email answering my doubts/query’s within hours.
(This also included payrolls communication)
The work environment is very professional and the pay/work ratio was very balanced. (I.e. Easy work = lower pay, harder work = higher pay)
It was also very easy to fill out timesheets and expenses which took up less than 10 minutes of my time on the weekends.
Even though I have currently only been working on one project I got the gist of how the company works and can tell other projects would be handled the same way as any other project.
Overall, happy with the team and the work I was provided.

Pros: Always learning
Cerco IT has given me the opportunity to get my foot in the door with IT.
The account managers here are very helpful in trying to find you contracts in your area and really fight your corner too. Sometimes you do have to travel but its a great way of seeing the country.
Just keep your head down and the work will come to you.
As a chef im glad to finally get weekends and nights off. I have even had jobs where the day is all over in an hour.
Everyday on the job is totally different because you meet and deal with a whole range of people which helps develop alot more skills than just IT.

I have been working for Cerco since February 2018. I found them very friendly and there was no issues about payment. I believe Cerco is a great place to work.

In 2010 I retired from Her Majesties Navy after 33 years. After spending a year doing my own thing I decided that I missed a working environment and the comradery it could bring. So I decided to get a job following a number of unsuccessful applications I received the opportunity to attend a recruiting seminar by CERCO IT in 2011.
Following successful recruitment tests and interview I was offered CERCO IT’s two week orientation and training course with the successful completion leading to possible work as a contractor.
These contracts could be short or long term and may in some instances lead to possible full time employment. There was the also the possibility of being offered interviews with potential employers looking for engineers.
I have during my time working for CERCO IT worked on varied range of jobs for various companies.
These include but are not limited to: BT, VISTA, FUJITSU, HP, etc.
The contacts I was involved with were varied but are again not limited to the following:
Removing and installing Tills, Back Office PC’s, Server’s, Hand Held Terminals, Printers, Chip & Pin machines and Wireless Access Points for various retail outlets.
Removal and installation of equipment for other companies including Government departments.
Carrying out Training and Floor Walking for companies, including government departments.
Carrying out various auditing tasks for companies again including government departments.
Although the work provided is dependent on availability from the various companies requirements for contractors CERCO IT endeavour to encourage companies to use CERCO IT’s engineers. This why CERCO IT are keen to employ engineers that are not only capable of doing the job but have a great work ethic.
I particularly like the fact that I can work very flexibly in that as long as I give CERCO IT reasonable notice and I am not currently on a contract arranged by Cerco IT I can take time out.
