PR | Atlas Cloud invests in graduate talent to fuel growth

Working for an emerging tech scale-up can be challenging, but it can also launch your career in unexpected ways. The House of Commons Science and Technology report found that a lack of digital skills costs the UK economy an estimated £63 billion in lost GDP every year. Atlas Cloud is eager to support the local community to bridge the digital skills gap by encouraging younger generations to opt for a career in tech.

With this initiative, Atlas Cloud has recently employed graduates to fulfill business development roles.

Rachael Myers joined us after graduating from York St John University with a degree in Primary Education. Speaking about her time here she says, “My time at Atlas Cloud so far has been amazing. All of the team are brilliant and everyone has made me feel so welcome and supported.”

“I’ve learned so much already and continue to learn new things every day. Everyone in the office is keen to support me and help me understand more about the technology, the company and anything else in between. Our CEO, Pete Watson, is great too and has encouraged me to sign up to training courses, attend events and arrange my own meetings – all of which have been really valuable for my professional development.”

“If I had any advice to give to other grads who are entering the working world, I’d say that work can be really fun if you have the right attitude. Throw yourself into it and make sure you do at least one thing each day that is outside your comfort zone because that’s where you’ll learn the most.”

Oliver Rupp also joined us as a Business Development Executive after graduating with a degree in Business Management from York St John University. “I have loved it here, to be honest, I have learned a lot in a relatively short space of time. I feel like Atlas Cloud is a great company to further develop my career. The team is a fantastic group of people and the culture of the business is really unique, which makes me love my job.”

“The most valuable thing I have learnt from being an Atlas Cloud employee is that positivity and attitude is key to do anything. Attitude is ultimately the one thing in life we have full control over.”

“If I could tell my 21-year-old-self something it would be something that Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, “you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets”. Working in such a fast-paced environment, like Atlas Cloud, isn’t always easy but if you are determined and throw yourself into the deep end with maximum effort, you will reap the rewards and create a solid foundation for the rest of your career.”


Speaking on the experience of taking on millennials in a fast-paced environment, Atlas Cloud CEO Pete Watson says, “Atlas Cloud has always invested in emerging talent through graduate and apprenticeship schemes. These schemes have welcomed bright and capable young people that are hardworking and have grown up in a world of technology into our business. They’ve shown that with the right support, training and environment they can flourish and be part of an exciting, fast moving and scaling business.”

As Atlas Cloud has achieved 80% growth over the last 12 months, we are currently looking to expand our workforce with start dates in September. We will be looking to recruit Business Development Executives, Technical Engineers and Technical Consultants. If you’re interested in a career at Atlas Cloud, view our vacancies and apply here.
