Caerphilly IT firm to triple its team

Team Metalogic, an IT services firm based in Caerphilly, is investing heavily in education for its employees in a bid to accelerate growth.

The company, which offers a range of B2B telecoms and cloud solutions, has unveiled plans to triple the size of its workforce over the next three years.

As part of this recruitment drive, three members of the team have begun external education courses to develop their leadership and knowledge.

Managing director Mike Parfitt and senior business development manager Paul Thomas are completing the 20Twenty Leading Business Growth Programme at Cardiff Metropolitan University. And Liam Torrance, service desk manager, has started the Upskilling@Work programme.

Speaking of why the business has invested in three members of its staff undertaking intensive courses, Mike said: “Finding the right people with the relevant skill-set has been difficult at times, so when we have the opportunity to develop talent then we need to do so.

“We have a team brimming of people with the right attitude so it is vital we continually develop to expand our knowledge and understanding of our business, the sectors we work in as well as management and leadership.”

The 20Twenty Leading Business Growth Programme helps leaders to improve their capabilities, innovate and achieve profitable, accelerated and sustainable business growth.

Paul said: “I am really enjoying it and it is just what I need in my life right now and is hugely motivating. We are making the most of it and will apply it to the business in order to help us achieve our grand plans.”

Mike added: “These courses will really help us realise our potential and get us on our way towards our goal of tripling in size by 2021.”

Liam’s course, Upskilling@Work, is being funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government and is aimed at enhancing skills and increasing productivity in the workplace.

He said: “The course is bespoke to my needs and the requirements of the business, which is very practical when applying the learning.

“It feels as though the course has had a positive impact on my work almost instantly and I am really grateful for the opportunity to help the future of Team Metalogic as well as my own professional development.”
