Brighouse digital marketing agency, Vizulate Digital, has expanded its team with the appointment of Sammy Gresty as junior web developer.
Ms Gresty joined the agency on a 16-month web development apprenticeship and will support the business with the design and build of client websites across various sectors. Scott Brant, director at Vizulate Digital, said: “This year we have seen an increase in new clients coming to us for web design and development work, as well as existing clients wanting to expand, develop or re-design their current websites, so it was important that we added additional resource to help us meet the demand.
“What impressed us most about Sammy was she’d taken the time to do a lot of self-learning in her own time – which showed us she was clearly passionate about a career in development.”
Ms Gresty added: “Being 21 when I started looking for a development role, I found that many employers expected me to have experience or a qualification, so after a few weeks of looking at entry-level developer jobs, it was clear that an apprenticeship would provide me with both of these. I’m looking forward to expanding my skills, learning new ways to develop and furthering my WordPress knowledge as it is such a powerful platform.”
