Booming IT firm seeking apprentices for "boot camp"
7:30am Tuesday 12th June 2012 in Business
A Southampton-based IT firm has launched a drive to sign up six new apprentices.
The students will be given the opportunity to join Amicus ITS on a two-year “boot camp” apprenticeship programme that will see them end up with a nationally recognised IT qualification.
The recruitment drive comes on the back of a record year for the company that has seen an extra 30 staff hired and profits increased almost 250 per cent.
Managing director Steve Jackson said: “Amicus ITS is a strong advocate of apprenticeships and vocational learning.
“In partnership with Totton College, our ‘Boot Camp’ programme will ensure that apprentices gain the skills necessary through one-to-one buddying and mentoring, classroom training and self-study to become fully qualified IT practitioners.”
Totton-based Amicus ITS provides around-the-clock IT support to organisations including financial giants Aeges, Axa Wealth and Swedish car manufacturer Volvo.
