UK Connect value diversity and inclusion as we understand that generating different viewpoints is a recipe for success. We recognise an apprentice will offer unique perspectives and upskill our workforce which is why we are so excited to have started our search for our first apprentice with ITP.
The Institute of Telecommunications Professionals (ITP for short) specialise in sourcing new talent within the digital industry. Since first launching their apprenticeship scheme in 2013 they have successfully placed over 100 apprentices in telecommunications–based jobs across the UK. They are the link between the employer and the apprentice and their efforts result in not only delivering businesses a valuable new team member but also help aspiring individuals kickstart their careers in their dream field.
Apprenticeships are just as exciting for both the employer and the apprentice. The idea of earning as you learn is an exciting prospect, gaining hands–on experience in a field you’re interested in and getting paid to do it. It’s an opportunity to learn transferable skills, meet experts in your chosen field and stand out from the crowd. We are thrilled to be offering this opportunity out and to add a new member to the UK Connect Team.
UK Connect are recruiting for an Apprentice 1st Line Support Analyst, a customer–facing role that will suit applicants with strong interests in IT and IT Support. They will join and become a valued member of our Service Desk team, working alongside and learning from our IT specialists who are the best of the best.
Head of Technical Operations
It didn’t take long to source dozens of skilled applicants who are keen to gain new skills and study towards recognised qualifications. After a telephone interview and much deliberation, six candidates have now been shortlisted for the virtual assessment day which is set to take place on Thursday the 15th of April. ITP has organised the group interview on our behalf and it will be packed full of fun group exercises.
“UK Connect have been a fantastic company to partner with so far and the process has been seamless. Jeanette has assisted us with our recruitment process by advertising the role and sending over candidate CVs for us to review and telephone interview. This support from UK Connect has been invaluable and has made what we do just that little bit easier!” Charlotte Goodwill, Head of Apprenticeships at the ITP
Each candidate will prepare a short presentation to help us understand their motivation for the role. The recruitment process will be a fantastic opportunity for each applicant to not only showcase their unique skills and talents but to learn from one another, building experience and expanding their knowledge.
