Security Cleared Software Developers

The Client:
Our client is a leading UK consultancy to Central Government

Engagement Date:
16 April 2018

The Challenge:

Our first engagement with the client assisted in delivering a security cleared (SC) Agile software team to work on a Beta Product.

The client had been let down last minute by multiple resources. The challenge was further complicated by a last-minute change in working location due to available hardware and seating. Finally, candidates’ clearance had to be held with a Central Government agency due to transfer timeframes.

Challenge accepted…

The Solution: 

Utilizing a carefully developed network of known Central Government consultants, combined with unique Security cleared searching tools, we successfully identified 3 consultants:

  • Candidates identified were ID, Quality and Security Status referenced prior to submission.
  • Pre-arranged telephone interview slots confirmed with CV.

The Value:

The project team was successfully delivered to the new site, ahead of schedule. The team is still based in Croydon and doing exceptionally well.

Due to the existing network and pre-screening checks, we reduced a complex hiring process down to a number of hours.

The client was able to accept telephone interviews on receipt of CV, interview pre-screened candidates and make an offer within a few hours. Combined with digital contracts, we secured all 3 resources the same day.

The Feedback:

"CPS Group – Professional Services Division has demonstrated a strong understanding of the Consultancy and Central Government space. Our project is now secure, and we also now recognise the ability to pursue larger more aggressive projects with the backing of CPS-PS."
