During 2012 Tower Hamlets entered into ground-breaking, seven-year strategic partnership with ICT Firm Agilisys that will create 250 permanent jobs and more than 1,000 vocational training opportunities for Tower Hamlets residents. The deal will also help the council secure over £29 million in back office ICT cost savings over the next seven years in a partnership designed to protect frontline services and local public sector jobs. In addition the council and Agilisys will create a pioneering new Apprenticeships Institute to drive economic opportunities for young people. Based in the borough, the Institute will become a centre of excellence for the training, development and work-placement of apprentices with public, private and third sector employers in Tower Hamlets and across London. Agilisys, one of the UK’s most innovative IT and business services providers, today announced it has been selected by Tower Hamlets for a ground-breaking, seven-year strategic partnership that will create 250 permanent jobs and more than 1,000 vocational training opportunities for Tower Hamlets residents. The £70m partnership will also help to implement the council’s new back office Finance and HR systems, as well as support their broader transformation programme.
