An apprentice of The Specialists Hub, Jack Murphy, achieved Special Recognition status at the ITA IT and Digital Apprentice of the Year Awards last week (12/7).
The IT and Digital Apprenticeship Awards set out to recognise the rising talent, role models and those making a positive impact in their careers. They are also the only awards which focus solely on celebrating digital talent.
The awards presentation evening was at The Reveller, Tower of London and was hosted by Geoff White, an Investigative Journalist who has covered topics such as the dark web and election hacking, and Jag Sohal, BCS Early Careers Liaison Officer who is “on a mission to help those in their early careers make a positive start in the IT profession” (BCS.org). Jack tells us that “it was an absolutely beautiful evening with some amazing talks from more amazing people!”
A key factor that consistently shines through is Jack’s willingness to give any task a go, regardless of previous knowledge or experience. Alongside his busy work life at Which? and his Cyber Security Technician masterclasses, Jack is also working towards achieving his CompTIA Security+ qualification. We, at The Specialists Hub think his professionalism, drive, and motivation are incredibly impressive and are more than worthy of recognition.
Receiving Special Recognition status is a fantastic achievement for Jack, with fierce competition and over 200 applicants in his Cyber category alone. Bob, his trainer at The Specialists Hub labelled it as an “outstanding result”, before going on to say that “Jack has consistently acted professionally from the start of his apprenticeship. He is very interactive in the knowledge classes and brings a wealth of experience from his employment to illuminate the session and pass on advice to the other apprentices.”
The Specialists Hub CEO and Founder, Bev McGowan stated: “Well done Jack and all the other finalists/winners. A fantastic group of talent coming through showcasing how valuable apprenticeships are.”
