Heywood Telecoms apprentice secures career

Date published: 07 March 2019

During National Apprenticeship Week, which takes place 4 to 8 March, we are bringing you stories of local companies who take on apprentices, which benefits the business and the apprentice.

Nathan Hall completed his IT Practitioner apprenticeship at Atrium Telecom Ltd in Heywood in 2012 and subsequently secured a full-time position working as a systems engineer.

Over the past few years, the 25-year-old has built infrastructures and installed systems as well as being a point of contact for remote support and on-site assistance.

Atrium Telecom, which is based in Heywood, has years of experience working in the developing industry and assisting their partners with support contracts and system installations.

Kevin Beswick, Director of Atrium Telecom Ltd, believes strongly in offering apprenticeship opportunities and upskilling young people.

Kevin said: “Apprenticeship programmes are a great way to train new staff and it is very rewarding to see them develop and progress. I would 100% recommend apprenticeships to other businesses.”

Nathan said of his apprenticeship experience: “It was great that I could learn and earn at the same time. I really wanted to learn on the job rather than in the classroom.”

Atrium Telecom Ltd are so passionate about investing in work-based mentoring that they offer Bury College students the chance to complete placements. During these placements, students are also told about apprenticeship opportunities.
