Mission Ready

Thanks to Simon for the quick update. Contact him on Simon@missionreadyhq.com 

The info summarised...

Mission Ready has been training work ready Salesforce Developers for several years, and have the full support of Salesforce

The Mission Ready training includes a NZQA accredited Micro-Credentials at Levels 5 and 6, and includes an Intensive Salesforce Developer or Salesforce Functional Consultant Course, and a 10 Week Mentored Work Placement (Internship). We also train Software Developers and UX Designers.

We deliver training traditionally online, and have a Head Office in Auckland. We have worked with candidates and companies from Wellington previously, but want to establish a more permanent and consistent presence in Wellington (including support, office space etc.)

We are looking to recruit a Wellington Salesforce Cohort (up to 30 people) to start the Level 5 Credential in mid-April.

What we want from you (the Wellington Salesforce Community)

Look at becoming a Mission Sponsor (for the Level 6 mentored work placement) - its for 10 weeks, and you get access to talent at no cost. If you are looking to expand your team, this is a way to β€˜try before you buy’! These mentored work placements commence in

Identify any staff you would like to cross train – do you have help desk staff (for example) that you could use as Salesforce Developers/ Functional consultants? After 9 weeks of intensive Salesforce Training and a micro-credential at Level 5, they could come back to you as Junior Developers and complete their L6 Mentored Work Programme!

Let anyone in the Community who would like to train as a Salesforce Dev or Functional Consultant know – and refer them to Mission Ready!

Come along to out Launch of Mission Ready Wellington, in early March – and look out for further announcements in relation to this.
