Storage reseller MTI wants to increase its headcount to help bolster its efforts in the cloud arena, including its quest to secure a Microsoft Azure Gold certification.
The Godalming-based firm says it poised to boost the size of its sales and technical teams by 10 per cent across the three countries in which it operates, namely the UK, France and Germany.
A new office in Moorgate was also opened this month.
The expansion plot follows MTI's takeover by private equity firm Endless LLP in January 2017.
Newly crowned CEO Scott Haddow confirmed MTI will be taking on apprentice and graduate roles as part of the headcount expansion.
"This is an approach that has worked so well in the businesses that I have led, and others in the channel that I admire," he said in a statement. "It is great to be helping to build a skilled and loyal capability from the ground up, to supplement the experienced talent that we are now attracting."
Haddow added: "This is not a headcount increase for its own sake. Since the start of the year we have designed services for delivery through the G-Cloud 9 framework in the UK, and across Europe we are working towards a Microsoft gold Azure partner accreditation after receiving silver accreditation this month."
