Quint Wellington Redwood has established a new label that provides young IT talent to the firm’s clients. With the launch of ‘Quint Young Talent’, the firm taps into the growing market for skilled and ambitious tech-savvy talent amid booming demand for digital transformation. 

“With Quint Young Talent we are meeting growing demand from our clients for young digital talent,” explained René Albers, who heads the new practice of Quint Wellington Redwood. The professionals services firm, which is headquartered in the Netherlands and has operations on five continents, provides services at the intersection of management consulting and technology, specialising in among other areas digital transformation, sourcing, agile, DevOps and IT management. Quint Wellington Redwood also has a training arm, Quint Academy, which provides training courses on topics such as agile, ITIL and Lean Six Sigma.

The new arm, Quint Young Talent, will operate as a standalone practice alongside the other business units and will focus on sourcing, training and developing young talent seeking a career in digital. Graduates who have completed a study in IT are able to apply for the programme, with those selected enrolled into, according to Albers, a “state of the art” two year career development programme. “Our programme encourages professionals to get the best out of themselves, helping them build relevant knowledge and gain practical experience. Quint Young Talent is an excellent springboard for the career of talented digital graduates.”

Quint Wellington Redwood launches new label for young digital talent

For Quint’s clients, the new wing provides an offering for one of their major challenges in the talent sphere – gaining access to young digital talent. Against a backdrop of a booming digital transformation market, organisations are embarking on a war for talent, with several analyses released in recent months showing that demand is increasingly outstripping supply. Albers: “Many organisations are as part of their digital transformation endeavors in a state of rapid change. The demand for new talent is enormous and few organisations are capable of fulfilling this need.”

Quint Young Talents will work side by side with clients at their premises, and if successful, customer organisations can at the end of the two year term hire the young professionals on a permanent contract. “If there is a click between the two parties, we offer this unique possibility,” explained Albers. Quint Young Talent has launched in the Netherlands, with future roll-outs to other Quint offices dependent on the results gained in the country. 

The announcement comes one month after Quint closed a large acquisition in the Netherlands. The addition of Paphos Group, which joined Quint’s technology consulting arm, added around 80 employees to its ranks, taking its overall headcount to over 300 employees.
