Filling military digital skills gaps

WithYouWithMe is a veteran-led social impact company dedicated to tackling the global digital skills crisis.

Militaries require the right people at the right time, in the right quantity, and in the right positions. WithYouWithMe aims to address skills gaps by empowering Commanders to readily employ and retain members.

A testing and training platform developed by veterans to fill the tech training gap

WithYouWithMe pioneered a new model for aptitude and attitude testing that identifies people with the ability to thrive in tech-based roles and then provides them with accredited training to get them rapidly proficient.

We have deployed this approach with world leading defence agencies, government organisations, Primes and technology providers, ensuring they have the talent they need to ride the digital wave.

We found that 67% of servicemen and women tested through our platform have the same aptitude traits as the best software engineers.

  • Northrop Grumman logo
    Northrop Grumman UK is working with WYWM to assess for potential in untapped talent pools, providing people from diverse backgrounds – who may be new to a career in tech but have a natural ability to learn it quickly – with the chance to join their ranks.

    A ‘squad’ of ten has been deployed to NGUK’s biggest business unit – the cyber and intelligence business. Roles include business analysts, as well as software and Java developers, based in both London and Manchester. The squad’s backgrounds are broad and varied, from a former police officer with a disability to a neurodivergent military veteran.
  • Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade
    Increasing connectivity in the Pacific region is a force for significant social and economic development and inclusion – however it also has the potential to expose the region to increased threats from malicious cyber actors. Papua New Guinea’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is an initiative that acknowledges the benefits of Australia and PNG working together to foster a strong and resilient cyber security environment.

    The program, delivered by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade and WithYouWithMe, is supporting PNG’s development of local digital skills, which ensures they have the expertise required to detect and address evolving cyber threats and respond to cyber incidents.
  • CAF logo
    WithYouWithMe has been solving a broad range of tech and workforce challenges across the Canadian Armed Forces for more than two years.

    Of particular note is CAF’s Software Factory – a key digital transformation project which has seen WYWM deliver teams of diverse talent to build technology solutions using the Microsoft product suite. This model is agile and grows over time to ensure CAF can meet the evolving needs of its operation with in-house talent.
