Build knowledge at pace during your placement within a cloud delivery team working on innovative projects. We are very selective and only work with organisations that share our values and offer the most exciting challenges.
Get paid to learn with a training allowance followed by a starting salary of £30,000. Our model expects to offer salary increases throughout your placements, aligned to your development and performance.
Be guided and coached by mentors who prioritise your development, wellbeing and work-life balance. The bar to get into the Qualyfi Development programme is very high, but once you are in then we are here to support you in every way we can.

There are Cloud Infrastructure tracks for both Azure and AWS, where you will learn how to create a robust cloud infrastructure, including networking, security, governance, policies, storage, databases, compute and other fundamental building blocks.
The training will cover Infrastructure as Code (IAC) deployment methods using tools such as Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, Bicep and DevOps best practices.
You will explore how to build modern cloud-native applications using containerisation and/ or native PaaS services, as well as best practices for Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and GitHub.
The track forks into both DevOps and SecOps, providing you with further specialism and skill.

Qualyfi Elite Skills and Traits (QuEST) is our framework to find, assess and select the very best new cloud consultants.
QuEST is used throughout the candidate/ consultant journey from selection to graduation.

Qualyfi's curriculum and associated technology track syllabuses have been carefully considered and designed to ensure Qualyfiers are immediately valuable or billable on day one.
We accelerate learning and ensure that Qualyfiers become increasingly well-rounded consultants with a blend of both technical expertise and professional skills.
Our experienced subject matter experts provide Qualyfiers with ongoing coaching and guidance:

Joining Qualyfi and completing the Programme requires dedication. We do ask for your commitment to the course and your intent to complete the placement as agreed. If you join Qualyfi you will sign a 2-year contract to that effect.
After you accept an offer you will be scheduled to join an Accelerator for eight weeks. We pay you an allowance (equivalent to £21,000 pro rata) during those two months and until you land on a placement. When you transfer to a placement your salary then rises to £30,000.
Throughout the two year placement we continually monitor your progress and include a further 24 days of dedicated training during that time. We also run regular virtual and in-person events. Your salary will increase over the placement, in-line with your progress, up to a maximum of £45,000 in the second year.
After the two years is completed you are free to negotiate a new role with your placement company, or find the next exciting challenge. We hope you will remain an active participant in the Qualyfi Alumni and join us once a year for Qualyfest, or annual celebration of all things Qualyfi.
