What Apprenticeship Scheme are you currently doing at Venture 1?

“I’m on an Infrastructure Technician Level 3 apprenticeship, working as a Support Desk and DevOps Technical Apprentice’”

 

What attracted you to working at Venture 1?

“I was looking through the website, and was instantly hooked after seeing ‘We don't believe in technology for technology's sake - it has to deliver real business value’. That line resonated to me because it showed that Venture 1 aren’t looking to ‘rip off’ clients, but actually aim go the extra mile to bring the best service possible; who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? ”

 

What sort of things do you do day-to-day at Venture 1?

“I start my day with the morning IT checks, where Ollie and I look over the internal systems to make sure we’re all up and running. Then I go through any support tickets and work on my tasks on the sprint board (with a game or two of pool in-between!)."

 

What sort of things are you hoping to learn at Venture 1?

“My main career goal is to become a cyber security analyst, and since Venture 1 both manage and help clients manage their internal systems, I’m hoping to gain a much deeper knowledge of networking and effective security controls – experience that I could only gain in a company like this."

 

What’s your favourite thing about working at Venture 1?

“Definitely the atmosphere. Work here goes beyond just a suit and tie, and you can tell that everyone really enjoys what they do. Even though I don’t have the experience that everyone else does, I’m still treated like a capable member of the team, and that feels pretty sweet.”
