Visitor Management and Control of Contractors solution provider, Safetynet Solutions, has appointed four new apprentices to its team at the company’s head office in Crewe.
David Eaton (18) from Congleton and Ryan McCandless (16) from Crewe have both joined the company and are combining on-the-job learning and hands-on training with their college courses. Safetynet also look forward to welcoming Matthew Jones (18) from Kidsgrove and Sam Preston (18) from Audlem in February.
All are undertaking a 12-month programme to achieve a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship – in IT, Software, Web and Telecoms, and Digital Marketing. To supplement their academic studies at Escalla, Crewe, David, Ryan, Matthew and Sam will undertake relevant work experience to give them an insight into working within a rapidly expanding technical business.
David and Ryan are currently working with the technical support department and implementation team, consulting and assisting customers who use the company’s software solutions to manage visitors and contractors attending their premises. All four apprentices will attain valuable knowledge of working in a demanding environment delivering cutting edge technology solutions.
The latest intake marks the fifth year running that the company has offered apprenticeships. Several previous apprentice appointments have proved a great success with apprentices still progressing well within the company – one taking a leading role in the sales department, another in project management, while others have gone on to study at university.
Established in 2000, Safetynet Solutions is the only company in the UK to supply the full range of Visitor Management and Control of Contractors systems, from its award-winning SkyVisitor and SafeWorks software, to print solutions and ID consumables. It supplies its solutions to organisations both large and small and counts many blue chip names as customers including ITV, Network Rail, Canon, EE, B&Q, Allianz and TalkTalk.
Commenting on the appointments, Russell Alderson-Scott, Director at Safetynet says: “Both David and Ryan have settled in really well and are showing a high degree of professionalism and talent. With them both wanting to pursue careers in the technology industry, we were very well placed to offer them the opportunity to develop in a supportive and dynamic environment.
“We have always been keen on appointing and training young talent as we see them as the future of not only our company but also our industry. As we operate at the forefront of our sector it’s vital that we stay ahead of the game and gain a fresh perspective and innovative thinking, and in our experience this is exactly what these young people offer. There’s no doubt that it’s a two way street as we develop with them as they develop with us!”
