New course upskills parents for Salesforce careers
London – December 9, 2021 – Slalom is delighted to announce its recent partnership with Supermums by sponsoring the Accelerate your Salesforce Career Coaching Course.
Research indicates women's jobs are nearly twice as vulnerable due to the pandemic than men’s jobs. Supermums addresses this through its mission to empower and equip mums with in-demand skills to help them bounce back from the economic disadvantages created by the current pandemic.
“We are humbled and seized by the impactful work that Supermums does in our communities and the opportunities that it creates by empowering parents with in-demand and valuable skills in the technology sector,” said Jitesh Soni, Managing Director, Slalom Technology. “This partnership sits at the intersection of Slalom’s culture, the core values of Salesforce and the mission of Supermums. We are excited about being able to make a meaningful contribution to help change the fabric of the broader Salesforce technology ecosystem and narrow the digital skills gap.”
The #MumsSkillUp campaign, in partnership with Slalom, is aiming to raise awareness and shine a light on resilient, flexible, and well-paid job opportunities that exist within the technology sector for women.
“We are delighted to have Slalom on board to help us raise awareness and scale the number of trainees on our course globally,” said Heather Black, CEO, Supermums. “Slalom will add extra value and training around what employers are looking for when interviewing candidates which will benefit the trainees greatly. Together we look forward to upskilling more mums in these essential skills and helping them to progress into meaningful employment opportunities.”
Salesforce estimate they alone will create 9.3M jobs globally by 2026 and need the talent urgently to fill these roles across EMEA, ANZ and USA.
The Accelerate your Salesforce Career Coaching Course is unique in the sector as it equips trainees with coaching tools and techniques, which are valuable emotional intelligence and communication skills to support mums in developing their own personal confidence in their quest to change careers and learn essential soft skills that can be deployed on Salesforce projects directly. Great communication skills are equally as valuable as technical skills when it comes to the success of any project.
