Four up and coming stars of the IT industry have kicked off a new business-backed campaign to urge young people to take up Apprenticeships.

The four, from Atos, Capgemini, IBM and Logica, now part of CGI, feature in a new film highlighting the varied careers in the IT industry and explain the importance of the sector to the country’s economy.

Hayley James, foundation IT specialist and apprentice at IBM, who features in the film said:
“The IT sector is the future. It has so much influence over the economy and I’m proud to be part of that. So many people underestimate how challenging and fun it can actually be to work in this sector, and there are so many different parts to it. Being an apprentice helps me to explore all of these parts to eventually decide what job role I want to take on in IT.”

The other stars of the film are:
Lauren Timmins, technical specialist, Atos.
Matt Page, lead developer / applications analyst, Capgemini.
Umair Kadodia, IT apprentice – public sector, Logica now part of CGI.
