We are Risc

Risc IT Solutions are an award winning Cloud Solutions Provider: pioneers of Cloud backup in the UK and a Microsoft Gold CSP. We have strong and longstanding relationships with multiple suppliers, and are very proud to only deliver the best solutions on the market. We’ve built our organisation on a foundation of trust, knowledge, experience and a dedication to first-class support. We deliver excellence at every opportunity.

That’s us as a company. But none of this would be possible without our people – they’re the heart of our organisation, so come on in and get to know the real us.

Croeso

As you’ll have noticed, this site is full of images of sea fronts, beaches, mountain ranges and vistas. All of these places are local to us and a short distance from our Head Office in Llandudno. Whilst the majority of our business is across the border, we’re proud to be Welsh, and in our spare time you’ll find us in the endless sandy beaches of North Wales and amongst the legendary mountains of the Carneddau – on land and in the sea. It’s a beautiful place to work and an even better place to live and if you ever come knocking, we’ll be happy to show you around.

Amongst our team we have a broad range of people with a diverse range of passions; rock climbers, jet skiers, martial artists, golfers, creative crafters, drummers, and even a member of the Welsh Cricket team – so we’re never short of interesting chat. This diversity means we challenge each other with different opinions and ideas, and it’s this that helps our business stay fresh and thrive.

The one thing we all have in common though, is that we care – about each other, our community, and our work. This means that we’ll make sure things are right if they go wrong, and we won’t sell you a product then ghost you. It’s also worth mentioning, we genuinely enjoy working at Risc, which is why most of our team have been here for a good while!

So, perhaps you’re thinking of working with us, or maybe you’re thinking about working for us – either way we’re always available and you’re always welcome.

Welcome

Hoffem ddweud ychydig o eiriau am yr iaith Gymraeg, oherwydd, heb os, mae’r iaith yn bwysig iawn inni fel busnes. 

Mae’r cwmni yn cyflogi llond llaw o siaradwyr rhugl – mewn byd delfrydol byddai’n braf i bob aelod  fedru siarad yr iaith, felly mewn ymgais i gyrraedd y ddelfryd honno – rydym yn cynnig a thalu i unrhyw aelod fynychu gwersi Cymraeg. Mae nifer yn mynychu cyrsiau coleg yn wythnosol – rhai yn cymryd eu camau cyntaf ddysgu’r iaith ac eraill yn eistedd arholiadau canolradd ac ar eu ffordd i fod yn siaradwyr rhugl. Rydym yn falch iawn o’r cynllun yma ac yn ei ystyried fel ein cyfraniad bach ni o gefnogi’r Gymraeg.
