The MOD embarked on a demanding programme to replace their outdated and diverse IT systems to the single structure Defence Information Infrastructure (DII). It is the single biggest infrastructure project in Europe and when complete, over 300,000 users will be connected to the system via 150,000 User Access Devices (desktops, laptops or mobile terminals) across approximately 2,000 MOD sites around the world with deployed and maritime platforms.
The Fuel Group were engaged in order to provide fresh talent for the programme at a time where there were significant skills shortages. We mobilised a significant pool of Security Cleared (SC and DV) Project, Programme & Portfolio Managers, Infrastructure Specialists, Software Developers and Technical Architects and deployed them in locations across the UK (including Scotland, West Midlands and the South West) on a contract basis.
At its height we had over 100 contractors on the project and not only did we manage the entire recruitment process from start to finish, The Fuel Group also assisted our client with gathering all of the paperwork required to transfer clearances – ensuring an extremely smooth onboarding process.
