Mayflex and Zitko

Attracting a new generation of technical security engineers.

What is Zitko Talent? 

Zitko Talent’s designed to attract exceptional engineering talent from outside Fire & Security, including college leavers and those with experience in other sectors. The 12-month programme offers trainees paid employment from day one, combined with around 300 hours of certified product training and theoretical study towards a Level 3 industry qualification.  All applicants go through a detailed evaluation process, including state-of-the-art aptitude testing to create a high-quality talent pool.

Mayflex will be making its full range of courses available to Zitko Talent and working with fellow partners to identify and develop bespoke content. 

Tom Filce, Director of Sales in Security at Mayflex says: 

“With looming skill shortages it’s crucial for the industry to attract and develop its next generation of engineers. Zitko Talent provides us with a solid platform to help achieve this goal, alongside some excellent partners”.

Why are we doing it?

According to research conducted for the Security Institute in 2020, 73 percent of people do not know enough about the security sector or how to get into it. With the increasing skill shortage in engineering, there is an urgent need to attract fresh new talent into the industry. 

Joining forces with ZITKO Talent provides us the opportunity to promote the success of Security industry to a wide audience, including talented individuals who could be the next lead pioneers in the industry.

We will also be working with our partners on another key aspect of our mission: championing exceptional standards. And we will be helping to be part of a solution to the emerging skills shortage.

How does it work?

The curriculum fee covers all expenses associated with recruiting, training, and mentoring, as well as additional guarantees if your trainee does not complete their course. There is also government funding available.

The programme provides: - 

A solid launchpad for developing and employing high calibre engineers long-term – starting in installation and commissioning.

  • A thoroughly vetted pool of trainees from which to choose - ranging from college leavers and career changers to experienced engineers from other industries. 
  • Over 160 hours of world-class education, including Mayflex- developed certified network, telecoms and datacoms courses, including certified product training on behalf of IP focused vendors, such as Hikvision, Suprema, Avigilon, Paxton, and Trend networks. 
  • A minimum of six additional foundational training courses constituting up to 150 hours of relevant manufacturer certified product training. 
  • All training administration is taken care of by the Zitko Talent team.

James Vian, Technical and Training Manager at Mayflex says:

“The pandemic has significantly affected employment in industries such as aerospace and automotive. Some excellent people are looking for a job. Many others are questioning their future. With Zitko Talent we’re opening the doors wide into our industry”.

Zitko Talent - Employers

Hire and keep exceptional talent

Many employers we’ve spoken to avoid this route due to the training and administrative costs involved, as well as the perceived risk of former trainees being poached. 

Zitko Talent has addressed these challenges head on. We’ve radically cut training costs through our educational partnerships and volume purchasing power. 

And we believe the quality of training and experience on offer will produce engineers who’ll remain loyal to you well beyond their initial programme.
