Reliance High-Tech unveils apprenticeship scheme for budding security professionals

by Brian Sims

Reliance High-Tech has just announced a new apprenticeship scheme that will provide several individuals with the chance to carve out a bright new future for themselves.

For over 40 years now, the company has worked with leading public and private sector organisations alike to design, maintain and improve security systems. Using cutting-edge technology, the business develops innovative solutions across a wide range of demanding environments. As such, it has gained an enviable reputation for providing customers with the assurance that it has the knowledge and expertise to take on any assignment.

With a growing portfolio of clients, Reliance High-Tech now has 33 service engineers located across the UK whose job it is to ensure that all customers’ needs are met. Carl Smith, the company’s head of service, explained: “As a result of our success we need to add personnel to our servicing department. We decided that a great way to do this would be to introduce an apprenticeship programme and recruit three people from different areas of the country to join us. Reliance High-Tech is committed to improving the security sector and our apprenticeship programme will provide individuals with the knowledge required to configure, install, maintain and troubleshoot security installations in line with current and future practices. It’s the first time for a few years that we’ve been in a position to take on apprentices so this is a really exciting time for us.”

Candidates must have a keen interest in electronics and security technology and be IT literate. Each apprenticeship will last for approximately three years and individuals will work towards a Level 3 Diploma in Electronic Security and Emergency Systems. Applicants should also have a full driving licence, as they will be provided with a company vehicle. Each apprentice will be mentored by one of Reliance High-Tech’s senior service engineers who’ll be able to offer on the job training to the highest standards, while also ensuring that a given apprentice gains relevant experience across a range of vertical sectors.

Smith concluded: “Apprenticeships make organisations more effective, productive and competitive. They’re a proven way in which to train the workforce of the future. I believe that there’s a huge amount of talent out there, so we want to hear from young men and women living in Bolton and the surrounding areas, London and the surrounding areas or along the M4 corridor between Swindon and Bristol who have the drive and determination to succeed.”
