Bellingham IT, the Wakefield based IT specialist, has strengthened its team with the appointment of Sean O’Toole as an Apprentice Infrastructure Technician.

Sean, from Leeds, started his apprenticeship after hearing about the opportunity through Estio Training. Having expressed an interest in the IT industry, he secured an interview and taster day with Bellingham IT before accepting a place on the company’s programme.

Currently working towards his Level 3 Infrastructure Technician qualification, Sean will progress to a Level 4 Networking Engineer apprenticeship. He is also undertaking additional training including a Cisco IT course at Leeds City College. As part of his apprenticeship, Sean will support the team as they deliver first line support and assistance on data protection, security, cloud services, backup and disaster recovery.

Sean O’Toole comments: “I’m really enjoying my time as an apprentice at Bellingham IT. I get to learn from and work alongside a great mix of people. It’s fast-paced and productive so I can learn and grow in a safe but real environment.”

Paul Heigham comments: “Sean is a great addition to our team. He is already thriving thanks to the support and guidance that he is receiving.

“As a business we recognise the value that apprentices can bring to an organisation, not least in helping us to fill the skills gaps within our sector. As a result, we have established a safe yet practical environment that supports learning without impacting on our clients and the critical areas that we support them with.

“Our apprentices gain fundamental skills and qualifications whilst also getting a great deal of experience in a professional, busy office environment. ”

The Bellingham IT apprenticeship combines valuable practical experience and theoretical learning to prepare apprentices for their future careers.
