I am at the end of the recruitment process and was wondering what the salary is in 2021? I've noticed they now pay you a salary during your training period, too. Is this true? Anyone who has received an offer from there or is currently working there... would be appreciated. thanks!

I don't know. I didn't go through the process with them, but I did with Sparta Global, which works in similar way. Make you ask them to clarify any questions you may have before you sign your contract. I've never known these companies to pay for the training period, so make sure you clarify this and double check that it is in the contract. Typically the salaries aren't very high and will depend on location. The big thing to usually remember is that you must complete your commitment with them, which will include taking assignments at one of their partner companies wherever they are located. If you fail to complete your commitment, you will liable to excessively high fees for the bootcamp they put you through. At Sparta, this was like £15k. If you have the flexibility and no responsibilities keeping you in a single location, then it's not a bad way to get your foot in the door. They train you because they make a good fee for placing you with one of their partners. Once your contract is done, you may be lucky and get a perm contract directly with one of their partners.

My experience above is based on the software engineer roles. If you're going into a different area, then it could be completely different. But since you didn't clarify, I thought I'd share my experience based on that with a similar company.

They do offer you a salary during the training period, for the UK branch only. A recruiter told me its 18k during training and up until your first placement when it increases to 24k in your first year and 26k in your second. Despite the negative feedback in previous years, when I've been chatting to the recruiters they've been extremely helpful and actually want you to get in (I assume they make commission). For the tech graduates, they're dying for new graduates as theres a huge gap in the market, not so much for the business side.
