COVID-19 career impacts

Here at Lolly Co, we pride ourselves on our passion for technology. But we don’t just dedicate our time to accelerating client businesses - we want to encourage more people to enter and excel in the technology industry. Unfortunately, a variety of barriers block the entrance to the digital field, from privileged access to training to our fight for equality in the workplace. We wanted to change that.

We believe in giving people a chance. And we know they are far and few between.

That’s why we set up the Lolly Co Foundation, the stepping stone needed for those that require that extra support to break into their future career. For those that missed out on the privilege needed to break into the technology industry, we can provide the guidance and the training that can ensure they enter their dream job.

The specific support on offer for those that secure a place with the foundation includes the necessary training for business technology professionals in a range of programming languages and other digital capabilities required for the field, support regarding finding a job in a specific field and extra assistance with interviewing and applications.
