Case Studies


Stuart first worked for Cognito iQ in 1998 on the IP programme, returning in 2000 as a Software Engineer. He is now a Senior Project Manager in our Consultancy division.

“Throughout my time here, the company has listened to my career intentions and continued to develop me. This, combined with a lot of hard work from my side, has got me into the position I am in today. I became an accredited Prince2 practitioner which is crucial to my project management role. It also reassures the customer that I follow a recognised methodology when implementing what can be multi-million pound investments.”
