We’re delighted to report that Greg Jennings, IT Apprentice, has secured a full time permanent role as an IT Service Desk Analyst at the University of St Andrews.
Straight from school, Greg joined IT Services in July 2015 on a two year apprenticeship programme. One of the highlights of Greg’s apprenticeship was being shortlisted down to the final three for the title of Scottish Microsoft Apprentice of the Year 2016 – a fantastic achievement, beating off competition from over 1000 other submissions!
During his IT apprenticeship, Greg benefited from a work placement at Shackleton Technologies in Dundee – particularly enjoying client visits in their sites. It helped him gain a new perspective on IT support in a different business environment.
He also continues to be a proactive Apprentice Ambassador, by attending events at local Secondary Schools, talking to pupils about apprenticeships and the benefits and diversity in a career in IT.
We wish him all the best of luck in his new role!
