Bridging the Skills Gap With Robust Assessment Processes and Bespoke Training and Coaching Programmes

Pareto Innovate offers a contracted Business Analyst and Project Management resource to clients through a graduate assessment, technical training, placement, soft-skills training, and coaching solution.

Here at Pareto, we receive over 35,000 graduate applications a month. However, we are determined to only work with talented individuals, who can Innovate within this space. The Pareto approach calls for a stringent assessment process to find the top 20% who will make 80% of the difference to your business efficiency. Our robust 4-part screening process includes competency-based questions, a technical test and a 5 hour assessment day to ensure that successful applicants are of the right calibre for your PMO, BA, and Business Transformation and Change needs.

What makes Innovate the right solution for your PMO/BA resource needs?

We understand that the demand for talented and knowledgeable Business Analysts and Project Management candidates has catapulted in the last five years, and has accelerated even further post-Covid. As a result of this, we recognise that there is an industry-wide shortage for such individuals and therefore, we want to support both our diverse candidate population, and our clients.

As the UK’s largest graduate assessment, placement and training provider, we have the resources and knowledge to implement a solution. Partnering with Firebrand and adopting an Accelerated Learning training plan, our preassessed graduates undertake an intensive technical training programme, covering five courses and resulting in nine industry certifications. We set out to equip our candidates with all of the tools they need to be effective within your business change and transformation environment.

Our focus is on upskilling talented graduates to industry standards, supported by a structured soft skills training programme, and monthly technical and business coaching sessions.
