Work with us

Everyone is an Apprentice

We have introduced a learning and development pioneering Policy at iungo for all employees to be Apprentices, including co-founders. This doesn’t mean that we pay our employees  £5.28/hour, but it does mean that we invest fully in our employees’ development and encourage them to invest in themselves. This is about building confidence as much as capability, and our experience so far illustrates a strong link between learning, confidence, and performance. 

We created this Policy initiative for two reasons. Firstly, we wanted to use this message to shape our organisational culture, demonstrating that we are open to new ideas and committed to continually improving our capability and working practices. Learning and development is crucial in shaping our business. More broadly, we want to change the perception of apprenticeships and highlight them as the ultimate symbol of social mobility. 

How we recruit

We do not concern ourselves with where you are from, where you are now, what you may look like or even what you have done before. Our recruitment process is based on our novel “AAA” framework – Attitude, Aptitude & Ambition. 

We recruit people based on their attitude towards our company and our mission; their aptitude to grow with the business and with our support, develop the required capabilities; and we consider a candidate’s ambition to determine if iungo’s strategy aligns with individual career goals and if integrating them into the company today will enhance the future dynamic and competency of our team. 

Our “AAA” framework prevents unconscious age, gender, and race discrimination from impacting our advertising, interviewing, or decision-making processes by eliminating prerequisite requirements such as experience. Our framework forces us to think long-term about our talent acquisition decisions, considering the whole person and their future potential.

We prioritise mental health and wellbeing

In the midst of the pandemic, we started a digitally native business, with all our team members working from home. As the team grew, we received more requests to meet in a collaborative space. Following a 12 month trial, we made the switch to full-time office working in June 2023 – and we couldn’t be happier! Bringing us all together has created a collaborative and inclusive culture and contributed to individuals’ positive mental health and wellbeing.

Building on our digital roots, we make full use of digital tools including Google Workspace, WhatsApp, and Trello to create a pervasive theme of team collaboration. We prioritise engagement and team building with a popular schedule of social and wellbeing initiatives.

We try and have some fun too!

We are award winning

iungo has been named Cardiff’s Best New Business at the Cardiff Life Awards 2021. The judges commented:

“iungo innovated smartly to create an app helping people affected by Covid to identify new roles in different sectors.

“Creative, strategy and tech pioneers.”

 

iungo is also one of five Welsh start-ups recognised by Tech Nation for high growth potential in the 2020 Rising Star Awards.

Our pioneering learning culture was highly commended in the Rising Star Leading the Way Diversity and Inclusion Awards 2021. The judges selected iungo for

“using apprenticeships internally as a symbol of social mobility and normalising the approach by making every employee an apprentice (fostering an always learning culture). iungo Solutions have also put in a rigorous approach to recruitment and selection based on externally validated assessment models to remove bias in the selection processes.”

 

iungo has recently been selected as a finalist for TWO Culture Pioneers Awards.

“I’m really blown away by this submission. I’m glad iungo is sharing what they are doing with the wider world as many will be inspired.”

Blaire Palmer, Culture Pioneers Judge
