Mercury to put 50 Trainee Data Technicians through bespoke training

Mercury has announced that it plans to put 50 Trainee Data Technicians through a brand-new bespoke traineeship over the next three years.

As there is currently no national trade for Data Technicians, Mercury has created its own standard for would be technicians, who will undertake excellent technical education during their traineeship. Mercury’s Trainee Data Technicians will take part in a course that offers a solid mixture of onsite and offsite training.

The Trainee Data Technicians at Mercury will undergo a 3-year training programme whereby they will learn the principal roles and responsibilities of a Data Technician. Mercury’s trainees will work on key projects across a variety of clients’ sites, in Mercury’s newly created Data Technician Training Centre and with a variety of external training providers. Trainees will receive numerous accreditations from City & Guilds, CNET in addition to training and certification from all the major Global IT Infrastructure manufacturers on installation and commissioning, all of which are globally recognised.

Keith Foran, General Manager, Technologies at Mercury said “We are delighted to announce this fantastic new programme. This traineeship is a brilliant opportunity to offer an entry level role to 50 talented individuals who will form part of the next generation of data technology professionals.”
