CSG Apprenticeships

Hear from Callum

I wanted to kick-start my IT career after leaving school and the apprenticeship scheme offered by CSG was the perfect opportunity. I have always been interested in IT, ever since my school days. I have always wanted a role that requires me to resolve physical and technical issues, such as MSP/Internal IT. I think apprenticeships are a very good way to start a career because you get to study, alongside on-the-job learning. It's the best of both worlds! I have been able to progress from an apprenticeship to a 2nd Line Technical Engineer. I have also obtained some certifications along the way such as the Microsoft 365 administrator expert certification. I have vastly improved my IT skills and knowledge since starting at CSG. I started CSG with just knowing the basics about IT but now I feel very confident in performing advanced tasks and troubleshooting.

Hear from Harry

I had just finished my BTEC Level 3 in IT and was ready to start my career in IT. So far, I have passed my apprenticeship and become a 1st Line Engineer. I have also been provided additional training to achieve Microsoft MS-900, Sophos Firewall and Central qualifications. Since progressing from being an apprentice to a 1st Line Engineer, I have learnt a lot regarding Office 365, Windows OS, hardware, software and general networking issues. My apprenticeship has massively helped me learn the basics of IT, hardware repairs and running a workshop. Thanks to CSG I now feel confident going for a permanent role in IT.

Hear from Rhys

I studied IT in college and from this I wanted to get my foot in the door with an IT firm. I chose CSG as it seemed like a good place to work for plus I knew progression was available and since being with CSG, I have been promoted from within. I have now progressed through the ranks up to a Level 2 Engineer, there is still a lot more progress to go so I hope to keep going and keep learning. I have learnt many skills over the years from communication to in-depth networking skills, my skills and knowledge are growing down to the many vendor exams and training courses that I have participated in. I have been at CSG for over 6 years, emphasising the confidence CSG has helped build for me with regards to working within the IT sector.
