A local University student studying Business Information Technology has successfully secured a 12-month placement with Kidderminster-based Minster Micro Computers Ltd. as part of his university degree course.
Joining one of the longest established and well-known IT firms in Worcestershire, 20-year old Ryan will work with and train alongside Minster’s SAP product development and support team over the next year.
Minster Micro Director, Susan Marlow, commented: “It has become more and more apparent that the next generation are being taught how to code and develop, which is fantastic, but they’re not being taught about how to service and support business products that are already on the market.”
“We approached a local University to voice our concerns and to see if they could help. After being impressed with both the undergraduates and the programme we decided to sign up. Our aim now for Ryan is that he gains both commercial knowledge and experience that will complement and add to his existing skill set, and at the same time we gain a fresh, enthusiastic individual who brings to the table fresh ideas and lots of enthusiasm.”
Having completed two years of his degree, Ryan is currently working alongside Minster’s software team having passed his pre-sales product training and examinations with an impressive pass mark; his primary focus now is support.
Software Team Leader Neil Hodgetts added: “This is an exciting time for Minster as we continue to explore new opportunities and build our engineering teams. Over the next 12-months Ryan will work with our engineers whilst earning a salary and extending his knowledgebase, with the guarantee of a full time job working with us at Minster once he graduates.”
