Nottimghamshire-based Your IT Department has welcomed two new recruits.

IT engineers Peter Marsden and Damian Joel have joined the IT business which is now based at Farrington Way in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire.

Your IT’s manging director Lee Hewson said: “We are really happy to have welcomed Damian and Peter on board. Both have very strong technical skills coupled with excellent customer service and they will be a huge asset to our business. One of the biggest considerations for us is how new employees integrate with the team and both Peter and Damian have blended seamlessly with their new colleagues and have really hit the ground running.”

“With our move completed and the team settled in to their new surroundings we are looking forward to a period of sustainable growth and a big emphasis on people development. We are fortunate to have a very talented team and we are keen to invest in their growth which will in turn help with ours.”

Civil and structural engineering company BSP Consulting has taken on its third apprentice administration assistant.

Simran Gangarh is the latest recruit to join the firm’s head office in Oxford Street, Nottingham – arriving just ahead of the 10th National Apprenticeship Week, which this year has the theme of ‘ladder of opportunity’.

“It’s rather appropriate that the theme of this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is ‘ladder of opportunity’ as BSP Consulting has just employed the company’s third apprentice administration assistant, with the previous two apprentice admin assistants having progressed their careers within the firm,” said BSP business development director Jef Todd.

“In the 1980s, I was a former candidate of the Youth Training Scheme – a scheme for helping 16 and 17-year-olds into employment – and I am a firm believer in training and apprenticeship schemes.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Simran to BSP and hope she will enjoy working alongside Katie and Hannah, who were our first and second apprentices.”

Katie White joined BSP in 2012 as a 19-year-old apprentice and completed level 2 in Business Administration. She was then taken on by BSP and subsequently completed level 2 in AAT, an accounting qualification, followed by level 3. She is now office manager.

Hannah Rawson joined BSP in August 2013 as a 17-year-old apprentice, completing level two and level 3 in Business Administration, and was also taken on after a year of working as an apprentice. She is now administration assistant at the company, which has offices in Nottingham, Derby and Leicester.
