"Giving people the chances they deserve" is a passion of business software and services provider, Advanced.

The organisation says this is something that connects it with The Prince's Trust, the charity of which it is a patron, and one of the reasons why it donates £25,000 each year to support the work it does for young people.

And charity doesn't stop there, not least thanks to its UK Charity Committee, which organises competitions and activities to raise money for a variety of good causes, all underpinned by its 'Do the Right Thing' value.

Based in Slough, with offices around the UK and across the globe from the US and India to Australia, Canada and France, Advanced has 20,000 customers including the NHS, London City Airport and Harvey Nichols.

The business, which challenges staff to 'Dare to Be Different', hires for potential, assessing behaviour and aptitude, rather than knowledge and experience, believing the majority of learning takes place by doing. Entry-level staff follow a functional-specific development programme, but development opportunities include a range of upskilling and role preparation courses, including a Future Managers Programme.

Advanced has its sights set on becoming the number one provider of software and services in the UK, aiming to double its revenue in the next four years and strives to be the employer of choice by investing in staff from training to financial rewards for those exceeding expectations and fast promotions for rising stars.
