17 year old's apprenticeship success at Magma Digital

Magma Digital apprenticeship programme has paid dividends for 17 year old Liam Walder, as he recently secured a permanent full-time role as a junior web developer after just fourteen months with the company.

Liam joined three months after completing his GCSEs in September 2012. He launched his career by starting as an apprentice web developer and has been learning at the same time as working, spending one day a week at college and receiving mentoring from his peers at Magma Digital.

Liam Walder stated that “an apprenticeship is an option I would highly recommend to any young person wanting to kick start their career. I am avoiding accruing student debt and have had the chance to benefit from commercial exposure to clients and business projects.”

Magma Digital is committed to giving young, talented people a chance in the workplace and is a proud member of the National Apprenticeship Scheme. The company demonstrates an established history of giving young adults key roles within the team, with three talented interns also transitioning into full-time roles after graduating from university.
