Invotra Limited, a leading provider of enterprise intranets, has appointed a new Managing Director, Billy Clackers.

Clackers most recently served as Product Director at Invotra Limited, having been promoted from the Management Team.

Clackers has led product development and spearheaded Invotra’s growth, having delivered key improvements to Invotra’s product offering including:

  • the launch of an extranet that provided organisations the ability to securely and efficiently share restricted information with other departments

  • a distributed publishing feature that supports the complex hierarchical structures of government departments, enabling comprehensive governance and improving efficiencies

  • delivering an overhaul of the entire product’s user interface utilising Google’s Material design in order to prioritise user experience and accessibility for end users

  • leading the implementation of several government department intranets for the Home Office, Department for Transport, Department for Work and Pensions and more.

The internal communications tool now leads in the public sector space, serving 47% of UK Civil Servants.

‘The apprenticeship scheme at Invotra offers an incredible journey, and one I am extremely thankful for. Not only are you supported to reach your potential whilst completing the courses, you are also put into meaningful work situations to gain vital experience (gone are the days of apprentices making tea). My ambition a few years ago was to join the Board of Directors, and to now be managing the board and the direction of the business is a true reflection of how much the apprenticeship scheme has had an impact on my success.”

From Apprentice to Managing Director

Today, 44% of Invotra’s staff are current or former apprentices, with Clackers being one of the first two apprentices employed by Invotra. Additionally, 40% of Invotra Limited’s Board of Directors are apprentice graduates.

Clackers (29) started at the company in 2011 as an 18 year old Software Development Apprentice. He went on to achieve a higher apprenticeship from the Chartered Management Institute, having started with a Level 3 Software Apprenticeship.

The apprenticeship scheme is catered to school leavers and young people as an alternative to going to university or sixth form, or anyone of any age wanting to upskill or change careers. It follows a learn as you earn approach, giving apprentices real work experience whilst gaining a qualification.

A Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer, Invotra has an award winning apprenticeship program that invests in developing homegrown talent. Invotra has won ‘Employer of the Year’ at the coveted National Apprenticeship Awards, both regionally and nationally.

“I’d like to extend a huge congratulations to Mr Clackers for his new role. I have witnessed Invotra’s award winning apprenticeship program over the last 5 years, seeing the opportunities and growth that have been provided to people from all walks of life. It’s great to see a story that demonstrates the value and success of apprenticeships.”
