Elite sets aside £50,000 for training

Leading unified communications provider, Elite Telecom, has announced a £50,000 training budget in its bid to ensure that the company leads the sector with the most skilled and knowledgeable team of any telecoms provider.

The company has already invested significantly in both in-house and external staff training across all departments, often differentiating itself in a competitive recruitment market by offering training as part of a benefits package.

Amongst those who have benefited from the company’s investment in developing its in-house expertise are group account manager, Matt Adamson and senior accounts assistant, Craig Fox, who have both been sponsored by Elite Telecom to study for their CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) qualifications.

Matt is now just one exam away from being a fully-qualified management accountant while Craig, who has been studying for only a year, has already passed six exams and has four more to sit, putting him on track to qualify in September.

Matt says: “Training was always part of the package I was offered at Elite Telecom and it was one of the major reasons why I decided I wanted to work at Elite. The company has been very supportive throughout and I have been able to take the exams at my own pace. The time I have spent studying is an investment in my future career for me and it’s great that my employer also sees the financial support and time to study as an investment in skills development within the team.” Matt Newing, CEO of Elite Telecom added: “Nurturing talent within the business is part of our focus on ensuring we have skilled, motivated and loyal staff across the company. Setting aside a sizeable budget for training is a key part of our business development strategy and will ensure we offer specialist services delivered with consistent efficiency.”
