"I started hunting for a testing job but kept coming up against the exact same problem with potential employees; automated application processes... Enter Scott Logic, which did the unimaginable: it actually wanted to know you as a person right off the bat, rather than making you jump through pointless hoops."

"I sent out CVs but every potential employer came back, saying: 'No, you’re not experienced enough'. I was stuck, and then Scott Logic gave me a chance. I think the company took notice of me because I was so honest about my lack of experience and stated that I just needed an opportunity to learn and prove myself."

“I was thrilled to be hired and was enrolled on the Graduate Programme... The great thing was all the graduates were located in the same open area of the office, so you could get feedback from someone who was coming to the end of the scheme or reach out for help from employees.”
