12.06.19, Reading: Mastek Ltd a leading enterprise digital transformation provider, has
today attended the Force for Good reception, hosted by the Prime Minister at 10 Downing
street to celebrate the UKs Tech Sector.
As part of its £12 million-pound investment into a new digital skills programme for
graduates looking to progress a career in tech, Mastek’s CEO, John Owen was amongst a
select group of key figures from the UK tech industry, including leading politicians,
entrepreneurs and innovators from across the country, invited to celebrate the positive
impact the growing technology industry has had on the nation’s economy and society.
John Owen, CEO at Mastek said, “This is an exciting time for Mastek and we are thrilled to
be recognised for our work in the industry. We are proud to be part of a sector that is
making such a major contribution to the UK as a whole – one that is helping the tech
innovators of tomorrow to gain key skills that are vital for the continued growth of the
Mastek’s multi-million-pound investment, driven by business growth and customer needs,
comes as part of a wider initiative for other businesses to address the skills shortage by
training and investing in people where the demand for high-level skills in sectors such as
engineering, technology, digital, and manufacturing continues to increase.
Fuelled by the company’s passion to improve the opportunities available in IT, Mastek
established a Graduate Development Programme in 2018 with the aim to create and
nurture the next generation of tech natives. The success of the programme has enabled
Mastek to take on 50 graduates this year with plans to double that number to 100
graduates in 2020.

Mastek grew by just under 30% last year and has now delivered 13 consecutive quarters of
growth and is anticipating even stronger business success this year. As part of its values,
Mastek believes it is the right thing to invest in the next generation to build the digital
workforce of the future, with plans to create 200 jobs through the graduate scheme alone
towards the end of 2021.
Following this, Mastek also employed 250 new people last year, sparking ambitious plans
for new investment in the IT industry over the next four years.
