Manchester tech group’s £10 million contract wins create 1,500 jobs

A Manchester tech group has secured more than £10m in contract wins to create 1,500 new tech jobs in the UK.

Media City-headquartered IN4 Group has won multiple contracts across its three divisions, including £6.8m from the Department for Education (DfE), to deliver innovation programmes and skills into careers and apprenticeships.

This will impact more than 100,000 people over the next two years, from school students to adults, and will enable fair access to technology careers and digital upskilling whatever their background.

IN4’s Skills City division, one of the largest national digital Skills Bootcamps, has been awarded £6.8 million from the DfE to boost jobs and prosperity in the UK.

This will enable 800 new accelerated apprenticeships in tech, enabling companies to upskill their employees and adopt new technologies to increase productivity.

Mo Isap, CEO of IN4 Group, said: “Securing contract wins across all three of our divisions synergises the way we work and multiplies investment to a greater effect; we enable regional prosperity through the delivery of business productivity and talent development.”

IN4 has also successfully secured the CyberFirst contract in the North West, backed by the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), part of GCHQ, and private sector partners – boosting cyber education and helping students to develop valued tech skills. The CyberFirst programme has already generated support from across public and private sectors, including Apex partners: IBM, Northrop Grumman, KPMG UK, QinetiQ and BT.

This follows the UK government’s investment of more than £5 billion into its new National Cyber Force in Samlesbury, Lancashire, and will help meet the need for a highly skilled digital workforce in the emerging North West Cyber Corridor.

Additionally, IN4 will be delivering a £1.4 million contract, Innovate to Scale, from GMCA as part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF), administered by Salford City Council, through its operating contract at innovation hub HOST, the Home of Skills & Technology in MediaCity.

The target is to create 150 new tech jobs in the Greater Manchester region by March 2025.
