Minster Micro Computers Welcomes Apprentices

Kidderminster-based Minster Micro Computers Ltd, one of the longest established and well-known IT firms in Worcestershire, having signed up to Worcestershire County Council’s apprenticeship scheme has welcomed three new apprentices in a unified approach to Minster’s business growth needs.

Minster Director, Mrs Susan Marlow, stated: “Recruitment of young people continues to be a challenge, and like many businesses looking to recruit young and talented employees there’s no shortage of applicants, just a shortage of applicants with the relevant skills.  After attending Worcestershire County Council’s apprenticeship scheme event, we signed up and very quickly agreed to take on three apprentices all studying the same IT apprenticeship course.”

19-year old Rheece started building his own PCs when he was still at school, excited by IT as it never stagnates. 18-year old Alex wanted to follow a career in IT after taking part in GCSE work experience. The youngest of the group Esmée’s interest lies in software and grew from her studies in IT at GCSE level. All apprentices are studying IT at level 3.

One of Worcestershire’s most recognised IT firms, Minster Micro Computers is a leading provider of Microsoft, SAP, Pegasus business software and 3CX, and delivers business software and hardware IT support services to customers locally and across the West Midlands, ranging from SME’s to corporate bodies with large multi-user networks.

Added Susan: “Rheece, Alex and Esmée will each receive in-house product and workplace training until they are fully competent members of our engineering team, with the potential of securing a full time position here at Minster once they successfully complete their IT apprenticeship courses.”
