Archant

Archie Doyle recently started a new journey as an apprentice at Hardware in the Vendor Operations team. Archie Doyle said the nerves of a new and first job were massive, however, I’m working with a fantastic group of people where I have had the warmest of welcomes and settled straight in.

I have come straight from Cirencester College to Hardware Group having completed my Business A level. I have chosen to go down the route of an apprenticeship scheme as I believed this will allow me to gain vast experience, contacts and ultimately knowledge of a real life working business and its industry. This is something I don’t feel I would gain at university; already within a month of working at Hardware I feel my knowledge of the industry has improved tremendously and I add something to my department. I applied for this job as I believed it to be a brilliant opportunity for myself. An ever expanding company giving me chances to progress my career and simply project myself into a very interesting industry.

 

With Hardware I have already been exposed to great learning opportunities. Within the first two weeks I had passed my JNSA’s (Juniper Networks Sales Authorisation) and had already been taken out to various different locations and feeling like a valued member of the team. To anyone looking at an apprenticeship with the Hardware Group I would say jump at the chance, grab it with both hands and put everything you have to taking advantage of it. It really is a brilliant opportunity. Within the upcoming years my ambition is to take all opportunities I get through hardware and turn them into success. Every day is a new challenge and my goal is simply to take that challenge and keep going until I reach my limit.
