Dimension Data Job Framework

Dimension Data Job Framework is designed to help you find your entry point into our team and to plan your career with us. The framework maps all recommended career paths in Pre-Sales, Consulting, Technical and Project Management in the organisation to a global standard.

 

Technical training

At Dimension Data, we are serious about investing in our people’s development, especially keeping abreast with the latest technologies. Take our Unified Communications Training Initiative (UCTI) for example. This investment in our people has even impressed the analysts at Gartner! This objective of the programme is to address the global skills shortage of crucial Unified Communications skills. It fast tracks graduates and employees through the CCVP curriculum with a Cisco Learning Partner and includes our in-house IPT deployment methodology. Gartner identified our UCTI training programme as a best practice in the industry. In fact, they scoured the globe for similar programmes so they could compile a report of multiple best practices to share with their customers - but they couldn't find any. The result? The whole report is about us!
