Managing partners Tim Smeaton, 49, and Simon Walker, 43, founded this London company in 2016 to address the skills shortage and lack of diversity in the technology sector. It hires graduates and professionals, trains them for four months in disciplines such as data, artificial intelligence and cloud tech, and then embeds them for two years with clients such as AstraZeneca, Sainsbury’s and Lloyds Banking Group. Kubrick paused training earlier this year when Covid-19 prevented clients from taking on new consultants, but it says demand bounced back quickly. Sales reached £18.7m in the year to June, and it plans to launch a new training programme in machine learning by the new year.
