Apprenticeships work at any stage in your career


Ryan works as a Cloud & Infrastructure Solutions Technician in the IT Department at Grey Matter Ltd in Ashburton. Ryan is 40 years old and an example of how apprenticeships are not just for learners leaving school.

Ryan has always had a strong interest in IT from his previous career working in Security Management. He decided that he would like to do something with this interest and with his excellent customer relation skills decided on a role within IT and consequently applied for the Apprenticeship vacancy with Grey Matter in 2019.

Ryan's role began within a IT support desk department and having completed his apprenticeship he has now moved into IT project work where he is using the knowledge and skills gained from the apprenticeship program (which included the CompTIA Net+, Security+ and ITIL ) to great use and has a very promising career ahead of him in IT.
