Supporting Channel 4’s growth by providing expertly trained IT consultants

Background

Channel Four Television Corporation (Channel 4) is a publicly owned media company headquartered in London. Channel 4’s offerings include Film4, E4, More4 and 4Music as well as internet products 4oD and channel4.com

 

The Challenge

The Senior Management team were not satisfied by the quality of resource and speed of delivery by a number of the consultants’ and contractors onsite, which was coupled by paying high day rates and an increasingly high staff turnover.

 

The Solution

Testing Circle engaged with Channel 4 quickly early in 2012 by rapidly supplying a number of quality consultants to a highly critical project, which in turn was successfully delivered on time and in budget. Testing Circle produced an onsite fixed rate card solution, which allowed Channel 4 the ability and flexibility of using fully qualified consultants whilst managing their budgets and project pipeline accordingly.

In 2014 Testing Circle added further value by introducing a low cost IT Academy model which supports Channel 4’s continual growth by providing highly skilled and expertly trained IT graduates.

The combination of both models has proven to be and continues to be a complete success!
