Analytik welcomes their new business administration apprentice
Matthew Russell has recently become an apprentice with Analytik. While studying Level 3 Business Administration at The College of Animal Welfare, Godmanchester, Matthew will be based at Analytik Ltd full time. This is in contrast to more typical apprenticeship where usually the apprentice will go on day release to college.
Matthew studied at Swavesey Village College and then attended Long Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge. He has gained valuable commercial experience and fundamental business skills through working as a sales assistant at Next before moving on to become top salesman of 2014 with Ede and Ravenscroft.
Speaking about his motivation to take the apprenticeship, Matthew says “I decided to join the project because I knew this course allowed me to explore and choose which aspects of a business I wanted to learn about. The main reason why Analytik appealed to me was because I was given the freedom to actually move around and work in the different departments in the business which then worked hand in hand with the course”.
The Analytik MD Ian Laidlaw adds to the story “We really liked the concept of modern apprenticeships, work based learning is a two-way street and both the company and the individual apprentice can benefit greatly. Skills learned and problems solved are very real, they apply to actual workplace situations that an apprentice can easily relate to. So whilst going through this learning process, the apprentice can feel the fulfilment and satisfaction of achieving meaningful goals that make a direct contribution to our company.”
Analytik are leading suppliers of innovative analytical instrumentation to the UK and Ireland, including portable and handheld spectroscopy, spectral imaging, light measurement, nanotechnology, biotechnology, polarimetry and refractometry.
