Nine Twenty Recruitment is proud to support the Women Do Cyber programme, and we are delighted to announce that applications are open for the next cohort of the programme!

The Women Do Cyber programme leads the way for reskilling and upskilling women into entry level cyber security positions, with the aim to mobilise and bridge more women into the industry. The next cohort of the programme creates 40 new scholarships and provides support from established women in cyber mentors through the Cisco and SWiT networks.

This programme has successfully provided a route into the industry for more than 20 women graduates and preparing them for cyber jobs, apprenticeships and further learning.

The scholarship provides opportunities for women with no cost, all tuition fees for three modules and the Cisco accredited Cyber Ops Associate qualification are covered within the scholarship. The academic credits gained throughout the programme count towards Glasgow Caledonian University’s entry criteria, if the student wishes to move on to further study.

Tech and Cyber are booming industries in Scotland, with over 13,000 new jobs opening per year. Nine Twenty are proud to support this programme and encourage women to get into the industry.
