Due to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak, many sectors and organisations simply don’t have the capacity to be hiring right now. But not in the world of tech, especially at ANS. Our teams are growing and now is a great time to join as we help our customers navigate the new normal with cloud and digital technologies.
We’re looking for a new cohort of young and energetic apprentices who love technology to join our ANS Academy this autumn. Nurturing home-grown talent is what we love to do and you’ll see just why in this blog.
Meet Will, he joined the ANS Academy in October 2017 and in less than 3 years he’s gone on to become a Junior DevOps Engineer, working on some of the latest technology ANS has to offer. We caught up with him to find why he chose an apprenticeship with ANS and how he took the next steps in his career.
Hi Will, so what was your first role at ANS?
I started as a Technical Analyst Apprentice. After a couple weeks on the service desk, I progressed quickly from monitoring and mailbox tasks to picking up triage tickets (tickets that had pre-set solutions such as disk resizes, interface down alerts, snapshot requests) Our weeks were split between training and on the job practice (you can take a guess which I enjoyed more).
Why did you decide to join the ANS Academy?
I found ANS through a relative and saw they had an apprenticeship program. I got in contact with the apprenticeship manager and arranged to do some work experience to see what ANS was like and whether I could see myself working there.
When leaving high school, I already knew that I wanted a career in tech, and I didn’t really fancy the idea of going to college to sit in a classroom for another 2 years. I was eager to get hands on with industry leading tools and technologies and ANS offered me exactly that.
