Intonation's Apprentice Gives Top Marks To New Position

An apprentice who joined us last spring has just completed his one-year placement and been made a permanent member of our growing team.

Will McSwiggan has become invaluable here in the Intonation office and with his new title of Senior Administrator, Will undertakes a range of tasks from project management and document processing to liaising with clients and helping out colleagues.

But life hasn't always been so busy for Will. The 22 year old from Fareham, who has an IT qualification from Fareham College, was unemployed and on a customer service work experience placement with Portsmouth Job Centre when he was offered an interview as a Business Administration Apprentice at Intonation - with just 10 minutes' notice.

One year in and our new team member's verdict on working at Intonation couldn't be better. "I'd give it 10/10; I get to 'earn and learn' and I can't imagine anywhere better," said Will.

As the first apprentice we've had, we're delighted with what Will's achieved and how he makes a difference to the day to day running of the Intonation office. It's great how one advert turned into an invaluable business opportunity for a local young person- so much so, that we've since offered the opportunity to another apprentice!

"I work with a lovely bunch of around 20 people and it's great to have seen the company grow since being here," Will added. "Working at Intonation truly is a one of a kind experience; I speak to clients on a daily basis and get a real insight into how a translation company works."
