Nick Yates

Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Course Start Date: November 2018
Job Before: Community Relation Manager
Job Now: NOC Engineer @ Custodian Data Centers

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I wanted to get into IT for some time and when my job at the time came to it’s logical conclusion I decided to take the plunge. I chanced upon an ad for IT Career Switch, did some further research and it soon became clear that they offered a well structured and detailed course that suited my needs.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I tried a few other things previously, a bit of web design and a bit of basic programming stuff, but all of it was a bit ad hoc. With IT Career Switch you have a clear path through your studies, everything felt focused and well structured. That, plus the support offered, made it far easier for me to be disciplined and organised with my studies. 

What's your current role like?

I love it, although at times it can be a bit daunting, At Custodian, we specialize in collocation, which means we provide the rack space, the power and cooling infrastructure, but the contents of the racks belongs to the customer. That means that when we provide remote hands we don’t always know for sure what ‘s going to be in the rack or how its configured, which certainly can keep you on your toes!

Martyn Jarrett

Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Course Start Date: September 2018
Job Before: Teaching Assistant

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I started the IT Technician Traineeship because I didn’t enjoy working in education and IT seemed like a viable option as it’s always been a hobby of mine.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

The livelabs were really good as it gave me a change to actually get some practice in. The IT Tutor Leigh was also really supportive throughout and so was the whole team.

What's your current role like?

It’s a very fast paced as working for the NHS there is a lot of end users the our IT department have to manage on a daily basis. Although it can be stressful at times (especially when systems go down) i’m really enjoying it and the team i work with.

Joshua Sweeney

Course Start Date: October 2018
Job Before: Bar Staff
Current role: PC Build Engineer @ Element Materials Technology

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I’ve always enjoyed messing about with computers and was tired of jumping between bar jobs so was eventually convinced by my girlfriend to take the plunge and pursue making my hobby my career.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

 The lab environments were a great way of introducing someone to  the business side of IT and I enjoyed being able to mess about in a closed environment with no worry of breaking anything.

What's your current role like?

My current role involves configuring laptops and desktops for new hires in the company and the occasional software troubleshooting. It’s a very busy role that has me communicating with members of staff all across the world.
