Thoughts from the team
Category: News & Updates
Welcome to the Team Callan, Lauren and Mathew
With COVID-19 dominating the news we thought it was time for a GCD update! We’ve grown as a team, we’ve been shortlisted for two Digital DNA Awards, been involved in STEM programmes in schools, sponsored an award at the Young Enterprise Trade Fair and are supporting the Women Techmakers Conference 2020. It’s been busy and we are looking forward to the events still to come once everything settles.
In light of the current global situation with COVID-19, we at GCD wish to assure you of our preparedness for this situation and of the comprehensive plans we have in place for business continuity during this time of disruption. Read more…
20th January 2020 – an uneventful day for most, but for me it was an important day. Why? It was my first day as a placement student in GCD. As I sit here writing this and reflecting on the last 35 days (to be precise), I find myself asking a few questions: has my first month been a success? Have I settled in well? Have I learned anything?
The answer to these questions, in the simplest of terms – is a resounding, yes!
Wednesday 13th November saw GCD staff, clients and friends gather in our Lurgan office to celebrate 20 years of GCD. The event was attended by representatives of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council as well as the Deputy Lord Mayor Margaret Tinsley. Read more…
The last few months have been busy, we’ve undergone some office rebranding (soon to be revealed), we attended a few industry events including the NI Chamber’s Annual Networking Event and launched our recruitment campaign that included billboard advertising on the Westlink, social media and local press coverage. As a result of that very successful campaign, we are delighted to welcome two new team members. Read on to learn a bit more about them. Read more…
At GCD we aim to promote a culture where every member of our team has the tools and opportunity to excel in their career.
There are many things we do to support our team, from flexible working and personal development plans to family events and extended holidays. As part of this we’ve recently signed the STEM Charter, what does that mean? Read more…
GCD, a locally grown software company, have recently launched a campaign to recruit talented developers to the Craigavon area. The software engineering company, with their head office in Lurgan, are seeking to capture the attention of potential job seekers currently commuting to Belfast on a daily basis, many from the County Armagh, Down and Tyrone areas.
2019 is an important year for GCD, we’re celebrating 20 years in business, we reached the milestone of 30 team members and have continued to grow! We thought it would be a great time to introduce the latest recruits, Harry, Colin, Melissa, Sean and Aiobhin, and get to know them in their own words.
This weekend the gcd offices will be taken over by the coders of the future, when we will be hosting the first event for a new Craigavon CoderDojo club. We are really proud sponsors of this club and are genuinely passionate about everything they aspire to achieve.
