Talent International (www.talentinternational.com ) has been selected as one of a small group of recruitment partners added to the new G-Cloud 7 Framework for Testing and Quality Assurance Services.  The move will see Talent further strengthen its position as the leading IT recruitment partner to the UK public sector.

G-Cloud 7 is the latest iteration of the government’s cloud service which reduces red tape, giving all Government organisations easy access to a range of services via its Digital Marketplace.

Based on the latest Digital Marketplace figures released late last month, total sales through G-Cloud reached £806m by the end of September. Central government departments were found to continue to drive the bulk of demand for services.

Talent UK Executive Director, Andrew Scholes and his team played a key role in securing the G-Cloud 7 supplier status award, stating, “As firm supporters of the G-Cloud initiative, we are delighted to be one of the first suppliers added to the updated framework.

“Modern technology, including cloud-based working, continues to increase in popularity throughout the public sector and Talent is proud to play an important role in sourcing people with the technical expertise to help drive the adoption and evolution of this throughout various public sector divisions.”

For the past year Talent has reported 40% overall growth across the UK and operates out of four offices in London, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester. Talent UK forms part of the Talent Group which has 15 offices throughout the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
