THE DO ACADEMY
We're passionate about developing talent, both externally and internally, to develop the next generation of 3D experts. Our culture as a business is to carry the value of professional development through everything we do. We started the DO Academy to train those new to the sector, and develop our own staff too.
This has led to us being awarded the BiTC Cymru Responsible Business of the Year for Talent Development 2018, and we couldn't be happier.
We also recognise it can be challenging to move from education to employment, and therefore also partner with university courses to deliver training lectures and offer regular work placements for students. Please contact us for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org
