Excellent Introduction to Software Development
Technology Apprentice (Former Employee) – Edinburgh City – 19 January 2016
I joined Wood Mackenzie as part of a one-year long apprenticeship through QA Apprenticeships.
Wood Mackenzie, despite having never ran a program such as this, provided a fantastic level of support to allow the apprentices within the program to explore the areas of technology which they felt to be interesting, working the schedule around the apprentices as opposed to the opposite.
As a result, every apprentice that graduated from the program left the company with a well rounded skill set and with a brilliant foundation of knowledge to help them kickstart their career as software developers.
The atmosphere within Wood Mackenzie was quiet, relaxed and enjoyable to work in which helped promote good relationships between co-workers.
Close proximity to Haymarket Station, Free fruit, Plenty of social events
