New AND "club" opens in London.

London technology “club” announces plans to narrow digital skills gap with fifth city office

A London technology company has announced plans to narrow the digital skills gap with the launch of a fifth “club” in the capital.

AND Digital helps organisations with the ability to build digital products and grow their internal capability along the way. The announcement comes as the company’s latest research suggests that data skills in particular are a major challenge to growth for many ambitious companies in the city.

AND’s recently launched Fuelling Growth in an Age of Data report, outlines the capability and skills issues that many UK businesses are facing when it comes to using data to leverage growth.

Paramjit Uppal, founder of AND Digital, said: “The research calls out a pressing need in the London area for data capabilities, and it is just one aspect of the so-called ‘Digital Skills Gap’ we face as a nation.

“Data skills are a critical component of the challenge to build the skill-mix, capabilities, mindset, and ways of working most London-based organisations are trying to solve.

“It’s for this reason that we’re opening a fifth Club in London. We are investing to help organisations accelerate their capabilities and equip themselves with the skills they need to not only survive but thrive in a more uncertain and increasingly digital-first world.”

AND’s new London club is set to create another 100 jobs in the city in the next 12 months and will be headed up by new Club Executive Zoe Kelleher.

Zoe Kelleher, commented: “What attracted me to joining AND was its unique approach to equipping businesses with the attributes needed for sustainable success and growth. Like AND, I truly believe that tech and data alone can only take businesses so far.

“AND’s approach to putting people at the heart of everything it does is a real example of how all businesses should operate. Its ‘club model’ means we can keep the close relationships and individuality of a small company, while also providing the scale of impact of a large company in the work we do with clients.

“This has been a winning formula for AND, as demonstrated by its explosive growth in London and the UK to date.”
