Sparta Superstars: European Awards Finalists Announced


It was recently announced that two Sparta Global Consultants are in the running for the Graduate Tester of the Year category as part of the European Software Testing Awards, 2017, and have been selected as two of the five finalists.

Rodney Ruswa, was nominated by his client Channel Four, and Francis McGowan, nominated by client Norton Rose Fulbright; who are both Sparta Global Academy graduates, and now consultants within these two fantastic organisations.

Both Francis and Rodney have made an enormous impact within their client organisations, both being tenacious and willing, and have fit in well with their client’s team culture. They have both been trained within the Sparta Global Academy, in Richmond, in technical and business skills, and have become consultants to their clients through the Sparta Global client outreach team.

The announcement has come as a shock to both individuals, whose successes have been driven by their passion towards their end goals, and their eagerness. Both have benefitted from the free training, that Sparta Global provides, to the right candidates who have graduated at university in any discipline and want to succeed in tech; within one of their academies located in London, Birmingham and Leeds.

Rodney spoke of his shock Well it was a pleasant surprise as I was unaware of the whole thing, and it means a lot to me as it shows that the amount of effort I'm putting in is not going unnoticed.”

Francis said  "I have been on a journey which has taken a lot of time and commitment but I managed to achieve everything that I set out to. I have a lot of vision and I am always striving to do better, which means that I am still in the infancy of my journey to making my dream a reality. It’s an amazing opportunity to be nominated for the European Software Testing Award, which should give me a real step-up in my career."

This is a fantastic achievement for both Rodney and Francis. We are proud to have been part of their career journey and wish both candidates the best of luck with winning the award.
