ETHAN SECURES IT APPRENTICESHIP WITH FRONERI
It’s fabulous news for Ethan Raine who has secured and started an apprenticeship as an IT Support Assistant with Froneri, based at Leeming Bar.
Ethan said: “I am really grateful to Ms Mannion for letting me know about the apprenticeship opportunity. After completing a Zoom interview, I was invited to a second in-person interview when I was also given a tour of the site. I could tell that they were great friendly people and that it was going to be an interesting and fun environment to work. After considering my options post A-levels, I decided an apprenticeship was a better route into a career than going to university. I would encourage others to give it a go as it gives you an insight into working life and more responsibility.”
Cameron Choules, UK Head of Human Resources at Froneri, said: “‘We are so pleased to have Ethan join our Froneri family, where we hope he will enjoy his role and make a significant contribution to the success of our business.”
Ethan’s role will involve working on a number of tasks including IT hardware and software systems, training end users, supporting the call logging system and installation of equipment.
Liz Mannion, Careers Leader, said: “I know that Ethan received more than one job offer and he should be so proud of this fact. I am not surprised at how well Ethan has done, he has made this happen through his own hard work and determination from Year 10 through to Year 13.
“I remember visiting Ethan on his work experience in Year 10 and he was so professional and I knew then that he had the potential to go far. In the sixth form, he has spent a lot of time researching apprenticeships and he has taken his applications very seriously and this has really paid off with the job offer from Froneri.
“Richmond School and Sixth Form College works closely with Froneri for work experience placements and apprenticeships and we really value this partnership.”
