I’m currently doing an advanced level apprenticeship at Union Street. I chose to work with Union Street as having researched the company, I realised that the experience and credibility Union Street holds in the telecoms channel is second to none, and that Union Street could offer a great opportunity to learn and gain experience in telecoms. This instantly attracted me to work with them and, as many previous apprentices had enjoyed success at the company, I was confident that the right training and support frameworks would be in place to help develop my skills and career.

This has proved to be the case. The company’s training courses, and the mentoring I’ve received from colleagues in my team, have helped me to develop a deep understanding of the telecoms industry, how our software works, and the role it plays in our clients’ businesses. My work is challenging and often requires me to find resolutions to complex queries which I find really satisfying. I learn new things every day and the team are always helpful and willing to lend a hand if you’re stuck or don’t understand something. There’s a fun environment and friendly atmosphere which makes this a great place to work.

I joined Union Street a few years ago as a member of the Development team. In my time at Union Street we have changed to work in an Agile way, working within the Scrum framework. This is my first time working to an Agile methodology and while it took time to become accustomed to the change of mind-set, I am now really enjoying the environment.

During my time at Union Street I have worked on some important projects, one being the development of the Benchmarking Service. This allows us to gather data from customers and produce reports comparing a customer’s data to statistical averages across all the sites contributing data.

Following Union Street’s adoption of the Agile Methodology, the company arranged training for me to become a Certified Scrum Master and I now act as scrum master to one of our scrum teams. The self-motivating, self-organising nature of the teams makes for a lively, refreshing environment. My scrum team now works on increasing the functionality of our web products.

One of the things I enjoy about working with Union Street are the people I get to work with. The company has a really friendly atmosphere so it’s easy for everyone to get to know everyone else. The people here are very helpful and willing to give a hand when you’re in need, both in and out of work. We regularly organise events and meals that people from all areas of the company join in with.

I came here straight from university without much hands on experience in software development. The training I’ve received has been great and helped me to quickly familiarise myself with what the company does and how it operates. I have now moved on to more complex development projects and had the opportunity to work with a multitude of different technologies, whilst experiencing first-hand a range of software development life cycles along with their advantages and disadvantages.
