Degree diversity: making our team stronger
At Bistech, our team comes from a diverse range of backgrounds, many not related to technology at all — because the key skills you need for a successful career can often be transferred from different professions or acquired through our extensive training opportunities.
To dig a little deeper, we recently donned our detective hats and collated the data from our people’s university qualifications so we could understand the range of degrees that have led to successful careers at Bistech. With Tech and Business leading the way, we also benefit from the transferable skills Science, Sports Studies and even Archaeology can offer.
So what exactly do we look for in a successful candidate?
The Technical Support Team
We want to see that you’re totally committed to ongoing learning and developing specialist knowledge to kickstart your new career in one of our tech support roles. Although an IT qualification is an advantage, a genuine interest in technology and excellent customer service skills are a must.
The Software Development Team
Due to the intricacies of emerging software and programming languages, our Software Development team has 100% degree relevance, from Software Engineering to Forensic Computing and Security. You’ll have the opportunity to work with and continue to develop sophisticated, high-quality software from the off.
The New Business Sales Team
And as for our Sales team, we look for exceptional communication, ambition and the drive to succeed — all of which are transferable skills that can be acquired from any degree or previous customer-facing role. At Bistech, we don’t use scripts; this is a sales role with integrity, so confidence and quick thinking are essential.
We believe in our training, which means that for most of our roles we hire on attitude and potential — and train for skill. By providing ongoing education and support, as well as tailored career progression opportunities, we demonstrate our commitment to investing in our team. What we look for in our candidates is an interest in technology and a dedication to self-improvement — whether they have relevant experience or not. If this sounds like you, we’re currently looking for talented individuals to join our expanding team in a variety of roles, so make sure you take a look at our current vacancies and apply today!
