Today is the last day at The Apprentice Store for Josh Black who joined us in 2018 as a network support apprentice.
Josh recently participated in our first every ‘Apprentice swap’ with Gael Force. This was a big transition for Josh moving from a consultancy role with multiple clients, to an in-house team at a large company. As ever, Josh rose to the challenge, so much so that he was offered a permanent role with Gael Force.
Daryl Titcomb, IT Administrator at Gael Force explains: “In recent placements with Gael Force we were incredibly impressed with Josh’s capability and his enthusiasm to learn on the job. We are delighted that he will now join us in a permanent role within our highly active IT department.
“The Apprentice Store has been very supportive to our needs as a business which is fully embracing IT developments at a fast pace. We are very grateful to have been engaged with them in recent months, not only because we are gaining a young, motivated team member, but because we ourselves have learned a lot from the skills that young people bring to the company.”
David Massey, founder of The Apprentice Store congratulates Josh: “It is obviously a day of mixed emotions for me and the team. Whilst we are sad to see Josh go, we are so proud of him and everything he has achieved. We set up The Apprentice Store to create opportunities for young people in IT and Josh’s job offer with a well-established and significant employer in the Highlands is proof that the model works.”
We all wish Josh all the best for the next chapter in his career.
