About the role

AI is surrounded by misconception and hype. Delivering AI solutions is fraught with complexity, uncertainty and risk. There is a shortage of experts who can support the understanding and delivery of these technologies.

  • A large team of experts that can deliver end to end solutions: With consulting and development capabilities in a range of AI technologies and specialist knowledge of some of the leading tools, we are best placed to support AI initiatives.
  • We use a service design based approach in our hearts: We really mean it when we say the customer is at the centre of our solutions and we build that into new technologies.
