A ROMSEY teenager has landed himself a job at a Hampshire IT and Telecoms firm after impressing bosses.

Harry Innes started working for easyNetworks in June last year after finishing his studies in sport at Barton Peveril College.

The 19-year-old trainee was offered a full-time position on his year’s anniversary with the company.

He said: "I really enjoyed my studies, but wanted to start something different for my career.

"EasyNetworks was suggested to me by my stepdad who knew the company were looking for a junior engineer, so I applied, went for interview and won the opportunity."

After a year learning and working on network installation projects alongside senior members of the team, Harry proved his worth and has now been asked to join easyNetworks as a Project Engineer.

He added: "I was really pleased when I was told the news. The thing I enjoy most about the job is travelling to different places, working in so many different organisations and meeting a variety of people.

"The work I do involves the same teamwork and logical thinking that I use in sport and having my own van is great too."

Operations director at easyNetworksHarry, Ria White, said: "Harry has surpassed expectation and received great feedback from both the members of the team he has worked with and the customers he has met, so we are delighted to offer this promotion.

"He will be running projects of his own and will get his own trainee.

"Providing training and career opportunities has always been very important to us over the past 20 years and we hope to welcome many more to follow in Harry’s footsteps."
