Your diveristy partner for your future pipeline​

futureproof is an IT services business which assesses, trains and deploys software engineering talent.

Addressing the current skills gap and helping improve diversity within the technology industry are two of the main reasons we established futureproof as a cost-effective and trusted resource for clients looking to augment their development capability now while also building a sustainable pipeline of new talent for the long term.

We’re people-first and passionate about diversity. That’s why our training is completely free for the students, in order to attract people with ability, rather than the ability to pay.

Creating the next generation of software engineers.

futureproof, a La Fosse Associates company, was developed to provide companies with technology professionals to overcome their business challenges and to empower people from diverse backgrounds to become the next generation of software engineers.

Working with only the top 1% of applicants, we train our consultants in full stack web development and deploy them onto client site where they can add value from day one.

"A lot of people talk about the importance of hiring diverse teams, especially within software engineering, but then fail to change they way they hire. I was attracted to the futureproof model because I'm passionate about developing talent wherever it can be found. Diverse teams lead to better debates and ultimately better decisions. They also create healthier teams with better opportunities for succession planning."
Julian Brown – CTO – Comparison Technologies
