NextGen Success story- FSB Technology

Success Stories
Posting date: 22 April 2024

Improving tech diversity through Harvey Nash NextGen solution

FSB Technology is an award-winning sportsbook platform at the forefront of innovation. During periods of significant growth, FSB wanted to ensure hiring incorporated a long term people and talent strategy for technology which was inclusive and forward-thinking.

Objective

To promote inclusion and diversity within the tech team, FSB wanted to increase the number of women and talent from underrepresented groups it hired, which was much lower than industry average. Additionally, the company needed to attract candidates with exceptionally high analytical capability and technology skills given the complexity of the platform.

Solution

FSB engaged Harvey Nash NextGen to develop a technology focused graduate programme to support diverse hiring alongside skills development. Harvey Nash’s NextGen hire train deploy solution was able to cast a wide net to attract graduates from many diverse backgrounds. Specifically, we looked for those with high aptitude and a passion for a career in technology. Our training academy then upskilled these talented individuals in the technical and soft skills they would need to add value right away and succeed in a professional technology team. We customised a curriculum to cover Full Stack Java Development and React alongside professional skills and commercial awareness.


“We immediately saw the value in partnering with Harvey Nash NextGen to improve the diversity of our tech teams. Giving young people from diverse backgrounds an opportunity is something we are wholeheartedly behind at FSB.”

by Sam Lawrence, Chief Technical Officer, FSB Technology

The Results 

Over 12 weeks, our trainees underwent intensive training in the Academy and delivered against tight learning and project deadlines. We were pleased to increase the size of our intake based on strong candidate performance during interviews. Further, our first cohort included 75% Female participation and 75% inclusion of underrepresented groups. Following the first successful cohort, Harvey Nash NextGen ran a second programme the following year, further improving diversity and long-term skills development at FSB Technology.
