The project, starting in September and open to high schools and colleges, is part of Kyndryl's plan to hire 700 professionals in Italy

Milan, July 22, 2022 – Experis Academy, the ManpowerGroup Italia Training Provider, in partnership with Kyndryl in Italy, the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider, is launching a Talent Bootcamp for high school and college graduates to become trained as mainframe systems engineers. Upon completion of the specialization course, selected candidates will be hired directly into Kyndryl Italia Innovation Services.

This training project is part of a broader commitment from Kyndryl for the Italian market to increase its workforce in Italy by 40 percent through the hiring of 700 new IT professionals by the end of the year.

The course for mainframe systems engineers will last six weeks, from September 5 to October 14, with a full-time commitment from Monday to Friday for a total of 240 hours. Courses will be held in virtual mode and will alternate moments of theoretical training with hands-on activities. Selections will be aimed at identifying 20 participants among high school and college graduates from each discipline. To apply, visit the dedicated section on the Experis Academy website.

Course participants will specialize in the mainframe domain and focus on high-performance computers with large amounts of memory and processors capable of performing billions of calculations and transactions in real time. The mainframe is critical for supporting data-intensive applications and processing – including commercial databases, dedicated transaction servers, applications for big data management, analytics and machine learning.

A systems engineer specializing in these supercomputers, such as those who will be trained by the Experis Academy course, will gain mainframe expertise that will enable them to manage the main utilities of the z/OS operating system, move autonomously within the ISPF interface, and write Batch programs in the Cobol language, in order to provide high-level consulting by translating the needs of client companies into technical solutions.

“More than one in four companies cannot find talent with the necessary IT skills. This is a problem not to be underestimated, especially from the perspective of PNRR, which has dedicated its first mission and a total investment of nearly 50 billion to the digitization of the country. For these funds to be used effectively, however, there is a need for professionals with the necessary skills to carry out the digital transition”, states Claudia Cattaneo, Head of Experis Academy. “Thanks to our training courses, it will be possible to introduce new talent and professionalism needed to further promote the competitiveness of domestic enterprises and the implementation of the PNRR. We are proud that Kyndryl has chosen us as a partner to support it in its business expansion plan”.

"The digital transformation of our clients”, states Sara Ornati, HR Leader at Kyndryl Italia, "needs to be able to count on innovative, constantly evolving skills that the labor market is often unable to offer. Training, development and upskilling of people, to which we dedicate significant investments, are therefore a fundamental aspect of our daily life and of the growth objectives we have set ourselves. I am certain that this initiative will bear good fruit, offering twenty young people with a technological vocation the chance to start a path, as experts, in one of the most in-demand professional fields".
