Hamdi Tajeddin @ PMA Digital – Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month

I’m happy to announce that the winner of Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month is Hamdi Tajeddin @ PMA Digital.

 

LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Hamdi’s nomination is below:

 

Energy: PMA Digital is an incredibly high energy workplace and Hamdi has found his own inimitable place within our dynamic. Uniquely energetic, fun, funny, self-starting, highly attentive to detail and motivated yet cool under pressure, he is not only a great role model to younger apprentices, but even to his more experienced colleagues around him. 


Enthusiasm: 
Hamdi’s exponentially increasing ability, his can-do attitude and the great results he consistently delivers have made him the perfect candidate to take on some of our more challenging and high profile projects. He has done so with unparalleled enthusiasm. It’s not all glamorous, but Hamdi takes on even the more onerous tasks with the very same enthusiasm.


Willingness To Learn:
 Hamdi joined us a blank canvas and now finds himself a skilled and confident junior developer, a journey on which he has taken himself with gusto. He is beyond willing to learn – it is at the heart of his every day.

 

Ability To Take Feedback: Hamdi has successfully delivered projects for some of our most demanding clients; and with demanding clients comes demanding feedback. Not only has he taken this feedback on his broad shoulders – even when it requires the most frustrating backwards movement – but each piece of feedback has fed into his learning process.

 

Propensity To Take Action: In an incredibly fast-paced working environment, Hamdi has thrived under the pressure which comes with the job, always proactive in his approach to solving problems and delivering elegant solutions to complex problems. Forget having to ask twice – we don’t even need to ask once.

 

Congratulations Hamdi!

Samuel Edwards @ Digital Catapult – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

Samuel Edwards @ Digital Catapult – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

We’re happy to announce that the winner of Future LDN Apprentice of the Month is Samuel Edwards @ Digital Catapult.

LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Samuel’s nomination is below:

 

Energy: Samuel is our youngest team member, but is mature for his age. The team couldn’t believe that he turned 18 last month and I expect the visitors that he deals with daily would be surprised. Samuel is our front of house coordinator which requires him to greet visitors and help them with their queries. He treats everyone – our regulars and first timers – with respect. People want to talk to him because he has such a lovely disposition and is always cheerful.

 

Enthusiasm: Often Samuel will offer to come in early when he knows we will be busier than usual. We say no but he still turns up early, which is always appreciated. He’ll happily do extra tasks that are not in his job description without being asked to. Visitors are drawn to him because he makes them feel welcome.

 

Willingness To Learn: Twice so far Samuel has worked with other teams (design and the events teams) to get a better understanding of what we do. On both occasions he wrote detailed reports explaining what he learned; plus the experience has helped him with his existing role.

 

Ability To Take Feedback: Samuel wants to learn and is always open to suggestions. He will also suggest ways that he thinks can improve how he works.

 

Propensity To Take Action: We are changing the way we track visitors and meeting room usage. Samuel came up with two excellent ideas that will be introduced next month: that we receive allowance alerts for visitors who have a room usage limit, and that when booking a room in the calendar that it automatically goes into Salesforce. In the meantime, he has been monitoring room and hot desk usage, which can be time consuming.

 

 

Congratulations Samuel!

Energy: Emanuel has been at Caritas for 6 months and is truly an invaluable asset to the team. His sheer dedication to go above and beyond has definitely transpired in an impressive way and has shown through hard work you can achieve results.

 

Enthusiasm: Since Emanuel started his apprenticeship he has hit the ground running. He is honest, dependable and incredibly hardworking  and truly excels in an commercial environment. This is whilst fostering positive discussions in order to bring the best out of his colleagues.

 

Willingness to learn: The reason why I took Emanuel on was his response at interview stage that he would like to develop on

his areas of weakness e.g. communication skills. Emanuel has immersed himself into new projects and developed his sales etiquette skills which has proved vital for his role.

 

Ability to take feedback: Emanuel is a true team player and an impressive problem solver who is able to address complex issues as well as take feedback constructively. He is inspired by challenges and is able to resolve it with strategy and confidence.

 

Propensity to take action: As part of Emanuel’s apprenticeship he has been given targets both professionally & academically by which he has proved to me that he is able to balance the two with ease. Overall, he is a dedicated knowledgeable individual who is an absolute pleasure to work alongside.

 

 

Congratulations Emanuel!

Sai Ganesh Maheshwaran @ Potensis – Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month

Sai Ganesh Maheshwaran @ Potensis – Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month

 

We’re happy to announce that the winner of Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month is Sai Ganesh Maheshwaran @ Potensis

 

LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Sai’s nomination is below:

 

Energy:

Sai is a popular member of staff here at Potensis and for good reason. He is eager to get stuck in to his core helpdesk duties. If someone approaches IT with an issue, he is straight up out of his chair and off to sort it out and very happy to spend some extra time with the user to explain the situation and perhaps how to stop it happening again if it is within their control.

Enthusiasm:

Sai is always looking to take on the next challenge and is on the lookout for ways to improve processes. He is very keen on gaining a raft of certifications but does well in the work environment to facilitate that. It is clear from all the good work that Sai does how much he enjoys working in IT. He is also extremely enthusiastic about Pizza Pay Day, easily taking down a whole pizza on his own!

Willingness To Learn:

Sai has obviously found the career for him and to say he has a thirst for learning and knowledge is somewhat of an understatement. Sai’s propensity for studying and learning new skills is highly commendable. Sai is now well versed in Office 365 and associated applications, Mobile Device Management, has strong skills in elements of the Microsoft Cloud solution, is a well-rounded helpdesk technician and is starting to get proficient in PowerShell as well as passing scoring highly in both his CompTIA A+ certifications.

Ability To Take Feedback:

Sai actively seeks out feedback where he feels he might not have taken the best path to a solution; although it should be said that often he is being a tad too tough on himself. I am impressed with how well Sai takes constructive criticism on the whole and it is clear that he is trying to improve himself as an IT professional, not just his technical skills but how he interacts with people and how he deals with their IT issues on a personal level. Of the few development issues which Sai has encountered here, he has addressed them with maturity and conviction and has resolved them.

Propensity To Take Action:

Sai has reached the point in his job here at Potensis where clearly understands his role and acts accordingly. I am confident to leave Sai to his own devices and for him to effectively deal with issues as they arise in a logical, methodical and enthusiastic manner, but also to act accordingly if things arise where he should revert to someone more senior. This is the second time that Sai has been nominated for Apprentice of the Month. He has come along even further now in his development and enjoyed more success. I think this is Sai’s month to shine and reap the benefits of all the work he has put in.

 

Congratulations Sai!
