DJS Research Ltd Celebrate First Successful Apprenticeship

12th June 2013 11:46

DJS Research Ltd are pleased to announce that Kieran Heald has been promoted to IT Administrator following the successful completion of his apprenticeship.

Kieran started with DJS Research in May 2012 and studied at Stockport College for one day each week. Following his promotion, Kieran has developed skills in and is responsible for providing daily IT support to more than 100 on- and off-site staff, maintaining IT equipment, delivering formal staff training, managing daily off-site data backups and ensuring the agency is technologically sound and up to date.

“I have really enjoyed my apprenticeship, and am looking forward to continuing to develop my skills at DJS Research Ltd in a full-time role. Even in the short time I’ve been here, the company’s IT requirement s have increased dramatically, and I’m excited about what the future has to hold – both in terms of the systems and software we utilise, but also in terms of the wider business and the direction it’s taking.”

Kieran is the first person at the northern agency to move from an apprenticeship to a full-time role, although the company is always keen to take on promising apprentices and has been commended by the National Apprenticeship Service for doing so. Elysha King is also nearing the end of her AAT-accredited accounting apprenticeship, having previously been involved in the Business and Administration side of the company.

Matthew Coulling, Operations Director, who has managed Kieran for the duration of his placement, had the following to say;

I’m really pleased that Kieran has opted to stay on at DJS Research full-time. He’s been a real asset to the company, and it’s great to see the apprenticeship scheme we set up a couple of years ago starting to bear fruit. It’s another example of what we’re about; developing young, local talent and providing individuals with jobs and careers. Congratulations to Kieran and I’m sure he’ll continue to excel.”
