Swansea tech firm boosts team with fresh talent

IT and communications firm SA1 Solutions has hired two new employees as it continues to boost its team with fresh talent.

The Swansea-based company, which provides technical support, services and infrastructure, has appointed  Liam Watson as an apprentice IT support engineer and Matthew Williams as a graduate IT support engineer.

Originally from Scotland, Liam relocated to South Wales looking to develop a career in the tech industry. With experience troubleshooting, optimisation and maintenance across multiple Windows products, he’ll support SA1 Solutions’ support team.

According to SA1, the apprenticeship will allow Liam to “further his skills through on-the-job training by SA1 Solutions’ professional engineers and offsite training delivered by Swansea ITeC”.

Matthew, who recently graduated from Portsmouth University with a degree in computer networks, will work in the firm’s second-line support team. His role will include supporting customers with day-to-day technical issues and alongside the server team.

Simon Ahearne, managing director at SA1 Solutions, said: “We’re very pleased to have Liam and Matthew amongst our growing team. They both come with a wide range of experience in many areas of IT and we are eager to use their skills and knowledge to further diversify our offering.

“We are very proud of the efforts we put in to welcoming fresh talent at the company. It is important to us that junior team members are offered many opportunities to develop so that they can embrace a solid career path.

“Our on-board training will help Liam and Matthew to build upon their skills base and having quickly become valued members of the team, I have no doubt they will be successful.”
