Frequently Asked Questions

At Revolent, we are dedicated to creating incredible talent. Through our two-year career programs, we recruit, cross-train and place skilled professionals in upcoming technologies, such as Salesforce and AWS.

As part of the programs our trained consultants, known as Revols, complete an 8-12 week training course, before earning industry-recognized certifications. This is followed by one or more placements on-site with our incredible clients, over two years, to refine their skills, undertake additional certifications, and gain valuable industry experience in real businesses.

We ask you to commit to two years on client site in order to get the full value out of the Revolent business model. For clients, this ensures a continuity of service with our Revols and, for our Revols, it ensures they have at least two years’ of commercial experience in order to help them progress in their career.

If you choose to leave during the two years, you will be asked to pay back the value of the training you have received, in order to allow Revolent to recoup some of the investment we have made in you. Your Talent Acquisition representative will discuss the details of the repayment clause with you and it will be outlined clearly in your employment agreement.

Your training will start with a two-week trial period so you can become acclimatized to working in your chosen field. This will also give you time to figure out if you feel the program is right for you.

 

You can leave at any point in the two-week period without incurring any costs. However, after the two-week period, you will be asked to pay back the value of the training you have received, as mentioned above.

You’ll be paid from the moment you start with Revolent (yes, this includes your training!) and throughout your entire career journey with us.

 

You’ll receive an hourly rate throughout your training and will then receive a salary, once you are placed on client site. 

All training takes place virtually. When you join Revolent, you will be part of a cohort of Revols in the same learning pathway, allowing you to expand your network and work collaboratively on projects.

All training pathways are between 8-12 weeks in length and differ depending on the training curriculum and certifications offered. Your dedicated Talent Acquisition representative will provide you with more information about the pathway you have selected during your initial phone interview.

Our Revols are the most important part of our business, so we invest  heavily in them. From day one, we’ll invest in your professional development and provide you with your own personal career development coach, as well as a bespoke Professional Development Plan (PDP).

Initially, you’ll work closely with your career development plan and, between the two of you, you will create a customized PDP, specifically designed to help you upskill and gain the certifications you’ll need.

You’ll also have access to our various support networks including our L&D and Consultant Success teams, Technical Trainers, Revol Ambassadors network of experience consultants already on client site, and our employee networks to help you succeed.

You can learn more about support and development at Revolent here.

All Revols are required to complete the entire training curriculum within their pathway. This helps us to guarantee that all Revols have the skillsets required to be successful in their on-site roles with our clients.

The criteria for each pathway will be laid out on the appropriate careers page. For Developer roles, we generally ask that all candidates have previous object-oriented programming and commercial experience, and have been through at least one software development lifecycle.

After the two-year placement period, you’ll have a number of options available to continue your career.

 

This can include staying with a Revolent as a senior consultant, joining your client’s team as their full-time employee, or becoming a member of our internal team helping to support Revolent as we grow the business. Or you can choose your own adventure in the cloud with the skills you’ve gained from working with us.

We work with a range of industry-leading clients across a number of sectors with new placement opportunities opening up all the time. Your Talent Acquisition representative will provide you with more information about the role you are applying for during your initial phone interview.  

Depending on client requirements, your day to day responsibilities will vary. On our Careers page, you will find general information about our roles. During your initial phone interview, your Talent Acquisition representative will give you with more details on the specific role you are applying for.  

We ask you to be geographically flexible to allow you to take advantage of the range of client placements available and to provide our clients with the best possible service, ensuring we have incredible talent ready to meet their needs. Depending on the available client placements, we may be able to make exception so please speak to your Talent Acquisition representative about your particular situation.

Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor visas or work permits. If you have questions about your particular circumstance, please speak to your dedicated Talent Acquisition representative.

If you need to leave Revolent for circumstances outside of your control, Our Consultant Success team will work with you directly to find a suitable solution. This may include taking a leave and returning at a later date.
