Birmingham-headquartered IT services business SCC is cementing its position as the region’s biggest private employer with employment figures soaring in key service areas.
SCC is Europe’s largest independent technology solutions provider and has been based in the city since being founded in 1975.
The company has invested heavily in Data Centre & cloud services over the last five years, and the return is now being realised with revenues up and new job opportunities created to help boost employment in the Midlands.
One area in particular that has grown exponentially since its launch in 2012 is SCC’s multi award-winning secure cloud service for the public sector, Sentinel by SCC.
Sentinel by SCC is the first Pan-Government accredited cloud platform of its kind and keeps data secure to Official/Official Sensitive (previously IL2 & 3) standards.
Since the service was launched with a small team three years ago it has grown to employ more than 50 dedicated staff, with further expansion already underway set to attract another 40-50 jobs within Birmingham.
Practice Manager for Sentinel by SCC Kelvin Ayre said: “UK businesses are looking to SCC to deliver secure remote access and innovation when protecting sensitive data. Sentinel by SCC has enabled us to do that and the business is in excellent shape. The strategic investment in Sentinel by SCC has returned substantial growth and in turn created new jobs for the Midlands region.
“As a Birmingham-headquartered company proud of its roots, we’re delighted to be supporting the local economy and creating so many new jobs for home-grown talent. The forecast is further growth and we will continue to expand – it’s an exciting time for SCC and prospective employees alike.”
SCC’s Data Centre & Cloud Services business posted an 87% increase in FY15, and was recently named Best Performing SaaS Partner at Becrypt’s annual awards, recognised for product innovation and forward thinking for Sentinel by SCC.
