Founded upon a partnership between accomplished opportunists, Jessica Leigh Jones MBE and Tom de Vall, iungo models itself on the approach that “everyone is an apprentice”. This means providing its cross-industry expertise, mastery of human capital management and wealth of training knowledge to employees, partners and clients.

In line with its Latin namesake that translates literally as “to connect”, iungo aims to develop the connective tissue between policy makers, employers and training providers. The company provides organisational design and development solutions that target the future skill requirements of emerging and evolving industries throughout Wales and England. This approach helps close higher technical skills gaps within the engineering and manufacturing industries, with a focus on creating an international brand for apprenticeships and providing industry-tailored technical recruitment solutions.

This creative start-up also prides itself on its unique intrapreneurial approach to product and service development. The first of its products, OPUS by iungo, is a Careers Information, Advice & Guidance (IAG) Platform for 14 - 18 year olds. iungo aims to redefine the career landscape by providing bespoke data-driven pathways for its users based on transferable skills and experience. By highlighting the multi-step processes required to achieve their career goals, OPUS provides its users with the confidence to make informed decisions while starting or developing their career. The career routes are brought to life with local training opportunities and bespoke short-courses to develop employability skills and enable cross-sector transitions in a post-covid economy.

iungo’s Career Platform is built upon a non-relational graph database which aggregates, equates, and connects millions of employability factors on the fly, to create billions of bespoke user-driven career routes. The flexible and scalable architecture creates opportunities for rapid global expansion. Utilising its collaboration with the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (UNMGCY), iungo intends to scale it’s platform globally to support international skills-based migration within the next 18 months.

iungo’s goal is to enhance global social mobility and put Wales on the map as a destination for top talent.
