The Company

Sparta trains graduates in a range of technology skills and then deploys “Spartans” in relevant roles with its clients, plugging the skills gap between university education and technology and business professionals. Sparta’s graduates come from a diverse range of backgrounds before being trained in one of the firm’s programmes, which cover in demand technology areas such as data engineering, software engineering, DevOps and business analysis.

By ensuring its own intake is diverse, Sparta helps its clients achieve their diversity and inclusion (“D&I”) objectives, and also provides advice around initiatives to improve D&I. The business benefits from a strong client base of UK corporates and public sector clients, including BUPA, Channel 4, Deloitte, Royal Bank of Scotland and The Home Office.

The Inflexion Difference

Inflexion will draw on its deep experience in the technology and training services market to build on Sparta’s impressive growth profile, including its investment in FDM, which saw profits grow five-fold during our partnership before successfully floating on the LSE in 2014. Inflexion are also currently working with Netherlands-based online IT recruitment and training services business Calco, as well as global resourcing specialist K2 Partnering Solutions, both of which are operating in similar markets.

Together we will address the substantial opportunity in new and existing verticals as well as exploring opportunities for international expansion.
