Kevin – Software Developer Apprentice @ Sainsbury’s
“My experience has been nothing but positive and rewarding, enabling me to become a valuable member of my IT team.”
I have worked for Sainsbury’s Argos for almost ten years. I was working in distribution, first as Team Manager, then leading on to Planning Manager, and then an unexpected turn into IT Solutions and Implementation.
I’ve always had an interest in ways to improve how we manage the day to day operation through effective, user-friendly solutions and created many bespoke apps using the limited technology’s and resources available to me. I began learning in my own time through online tutorials and Google. While this improved my knowledge, I felt the imposter in the tech field very much.
Being on the Solution Developer apprenticeship is having so many great benefits for my personal development. The learning is very structured and fills gaps that are missed through self-learning. I’m learning new skills and techniques, and my overall confidence in the Sainsbury’s Tech environment is continually improving. Apprenticeships are great at developing people, and I’m looking forward to continual learning in my field.
