Eitex, a national IT Support business with offices in Nelson have improved the prospects of at least one local graduate by utilising the services provided by Pendle Borough Council’s Graduate Placement Scheme.
The scheme is designed to help local graduates find employment with local businesses, ensuring skills and experience is retained in the region whilst boosting the local economy.
Lee Hezzlewood, the Regional Director in charge of the Lancashire side of the business said “Although our Lancashire IT Support services are new for the organisation, we had a requirement to take on additional resources. There is a growing demand in the region for quality IT skills, particularly as more and more businesses attempt to make use of technology to improve their effectiveness and profitability.”
Marc McKinlay is the lucky graduate who was snapped up by Eitex, and Lee continued, “Marc has a range of skills and experience, which when added to his qualifications, bring significant benefits to our business and will enhance the quality of service we provide to our clients.”
Marc joined Eitex on the 1st of March and, after spending a couple of weeks training at Eitex’s UK Support Centre in Batley, Leeds is now fulfilling the role of 2nd line local support for Eitex customers across Lancashire and providing remote support to customers across the rest of the UK.
