From Retail to Insider Risk at Dyson
Before joining the CAPSLOCK course, Siân had decided to leave her position as a store manager at Debenhams. She was concerned about job security in the retail sector, and wanted to try something new. She then spent a few months researching and reading about cyber security and how to transition into the field. This lead her to CAPSLOCK, where she enrolled onto our full time cyber retraining bootcamp in March 2021.
After just two months on the course, and prior to completing the 5 professional certifications CAPSLOCK includes, Siân successfully secured this impressive cyber security role.
Speaking about her experience on our course, Siân said:
“I’ve loved how supportive the CAPSLOCK tutors and team have been. The curriculum has been amazing because the focus is on workplace readiness. The work that we have done was invaluable during my interview with Dyson. It’s been an incredible way to get a really broad knowledge of the cyber world in a short space of time.”
CAPSLOCK re-skill adults into cyber security professionals in 26 weeks or less.
Gary Billings, CAPSLOCK Head of Career Outcomes, said:
“The whole team at CAPSLOCK are incredibly proud of Siân for this fantastic achievement. She works incredibly hard, and it’s been a privilege to help her land her first job in cyber. It’s also a great review of CAPSLOCK itself. To have such a prestigious household name hire one of our learners is testament to how well our cyber-security retraining courses are working. We’re equipping people with the skills and knowledge employers need, and the results speak for themselves.”
