NEWCASTLE IT firm Calibre Secured Networks Ltd has made key appointments to meet demand for its services and support expansion.
Jake Reilly has joined the Science Central-based network and infrastructure specialists as a platform engineer providing server expertise and assistance with the installation and configuration of Cisco technologies.
Also starting will be Joe Davies, who joins as an apprentice working towards completing his Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in IT while supporting operations director Steve Nelson and the team on new contracts and existing installation work.
The news comes as Calibre continues to see growth on the back of proven Cisco network and service capability for education and public sector customers across the UK.
Work to complete a new IT infrastructure at social housing provider Eastlands Housing in Manchester and upgrades to Wrexham County Borough Council’s network has driven turnover to £750,000.
Additional work at West Park School, Darlington and support activity at multinational enterprise software giant Sage has further secured growth for the 10 strong Calibre team.
Managing director Karen Nelson said Calibre is continuing to invest in a highly skilled workforce as it gears up to meet demand and will benefit from the additional resources the new starters will provide.
She said: “We are continuing to grow and are now busier than ever before, so I’m delighted to welcome Jake and Joe to Calibre. They’ll be a huge asset to both the management team and our customers.
“Over the next 12 months we will look to support our talented team while continuing to nurture a new generation of young, skilled people within the firm and the wider industry.”
Joe Davies added: “I’ve always been a practical person and I was looking for a career opportunity in the IT sector that would allow me to learn a trade and gain really useful skills, while developing a wider understanding of business and working with customers.Posted by Calibre Web Team Posted on 29 Jun
