The tech sector has an acute labour shortage. In order to deliver one million tech jobs by 2025 and for Australia to embrace the opportunity technology jobs embody, addressing the skills gap is priority number one. Research suggests that only one in four people finishing computer science degrees in Australia will go on to work in tech roles locally. And currently – only one in 10 of people studying those degrees here are women.
_nology’s mission is to create and deliver world-class, diverse tech talent for the industry. We are able to break down barriers so that the highest-potential individuals, from non-traditional backgrounds, can pursue their goals of working in tech, no matter their backgrounds, education, or experience.
We specifically market to underrepresented groups, including women, ethnically diverse individuals, the LGBTQIA+ community, those with disabilities, and those from underprivileged backgrounds. By using language and imagery that is very inclusive, we can dispel myths about working in the tech sector and prove that there is space for anyone with the passion and aptitude to succeed.
_nology fully funds training programs for our candidates, ensuring we don’t discriminate on social mobility and give access to careers in technology to as many members of the community as possible. Bootcamps and tertiary education can be completely restrictive – tens of thousands of dollars in fees have excluded many individuals. By removing the barrier to entry, we believe we provide one of the most inclusive environments around for those wanting to enter the industry.
