SureCloud®, a supplier of Cloud-based Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Applications, and Cybersecurity Services has this week opened a new innovation center in Reading, creating 5 new jobs.
Headquartered in London, SureCloud has opened the new innovation center to focus on product development as the company seeks to further expand its GRC solution range. This will include the development of new software and products, requiring an expansion to the development team.
The company has initially employed five new team members and plans to recruit a further eight graduates in the medium term to focus on product development. With further finance and administration roles to also be added, SureCloud expects to hire 15 new people in total by the end of 2019.
Commenting on the new center SureCloud CEO Richard Hibbert said: “SureCloud is going through an exciting period of growth, having recently launched a number of new solutions and opened new offices in the USA. The innovation center will form a ‘center of excellence’ that is integral to our ambitious growth strategy for the next 18 months as we look to develop further solutions that meet the GRC and cyber-security requirements of the market.
We have chosen Reading as it is already home to the largest number of tech companies in the UK including Microsoft and Oracle, providing a hotbed of talent from which we can recruit. With its excellent transport links with London and the rest of the country, we are confident it will be an attractive option for candidates looking to build their careers in STEM.”
