Ashley Matthews

Job Before:  Sales Assistant

Job Now:  IT Support Technician @ Alliance Systems Limited


Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: May 2022

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I was looking for a career change in IT, but because of my rural location, there weren’t a lot of options nearby. This made being able to do every step via remote so useful from a time/cost standpoint.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
Getting stuck in with the LiveLabs, I quite enjoy getting to do things myself and I learn well hands-on, so the labs were great for reinforcing what I had already learned so far!
What's your current role like?
It’s challenging but very rewarding. The people I work with are fantastic and supportive, and there are no stupid questions, which is a great environment for a new career start. Additionally, the role is remote also means that I can keep travel and costs down in general, and I have more freedom in where I can live!
