“I joined Intouch Advance in September 2016 as part of the apprenticeship scheme. I am currently in my second year and studying for a Level 3 diploma in business administration. During the first few months my role was to support the account director. I assisted with quote production and helped to manage the requirements of customers, by logging maintenance queries and ordering new equipment. In my second year I am establishing myself in a sales support role; offering advice, producing analytical documents and providing a range of administrative assistance to the whole sales team.
Throughout my time at Intouch Advance I have developed my communication skills; through regular contact with customers and colleagues, I have gained confidence in assisting with queries and producing documents to help clarify the information a customer requires. I regularly work with Microsoft Excel and have become proficient at using the programme, this has allowed me to enhance the reports I produce. Intouch Advance provides you with opportunities to learn new skills, meet and share the work environment with great people every day.”
“My Intouch Advance journey began in August 2017, when I joined as IT support. My key role when I started was supporting our IT infrastructure which has now expanded to looking after our external customers broadband connections. This consists of troubleshooting the connection and providing them with the most suitable support. Every day I am learning new skills and knowledge, an example is applying configuration to Cisco routers for our larger customers, such as The Card Factory.
I am currently working towards a diploma in IT and Telecoms professionals. Throughout my course I have studied a variety of business topics including: learning the best way to deal with customer issues and meeting the SLAs associated with issues, faults and physically fixing computer systems. Recently I have started to learn how to negotiate quotes with our top suppliers to be able to deliver the products and support our customers depend on in order to keep their business running.
It was the best decision to join Intouch advance as I have learnt so much more than working in a class room. I am gaining experience that is very important for my future. Intouch Advance is a positive fit for me, I really belong in the team and the best part of my job is knowing that no two days are the same!”
“Rather than learning in a classroom environment, I decided to join the Apprenticeships scheme. I secured a full time, paid placement at Intouch Advance and am studying alongside for the NVQ in Information Technology qualification, which I will complete in one year.
Initially my role was to provide IT support to staff, which has now expanded to providing technical support to Intouch Advance customers. I am gaining insights into the telecoms sector and my duties include network monitoring, fault logging and troubleshooting amongst others.
I have also been getting some exposure in Marketing, using my existing skills in video editing and assisting with social media activities. I have already learned so much from my mentor at Intouch Advance and I enjoy the new challenges my role offers every day. Learning in a work environment was the right decision for me”
“I support the Head of Finance ensuring all invoices are raised and paid on time and that we are being charged the correct rates from suppliers, as well as giving the agreed rates to customers.
So far I have learned a lot about the different customers we have and the suppliers we use. I am developing a knowledge of the telecom background and how it changes so much and so often, as well as constantly using programmes such as Excel, Ebillz and Sage to broaden my IT skills.
Every day I’m learning new skills and have met some fantastic people along the way.”
