Eric Jets Off!

Our IT Support Engineer Eric Riley has jetted of to Kilimanjaro!


Eric won this trip as a prize after being crowned the IT Apprentice of the Year. This was from national training provider Remit in recognition of his commitment to the apprenticeship programme that he recently completed with Syntax IT Services where he now works full time as an IT Support Engineer.


As part of his apprenticeship award, he has been invited by Remit to join the 12-day trip to Kilimanjaro in Tanzania this April which will include community and environmental work in local villages as well as camping in the African bush and safari trips.

Eric said: “I was really pleased to be recognised with the national apprenticeship award and am really looking forward to the Kilimanjaro trip which will be a totally new experience for me and certainly very different from my work working in IT support.”

Syntax Managing Director Roger Frost said: “We are extremely proud of Eric and wish him luck for trip to Kilimanjaro.
“In the highly pressurised world of IT support it is vital that staff achieve a good work-life balance and we are keen that everyone here achieves their potential in all walks of life.”

Eric Riley from Spondon completed his IT Technician apprenticeship with the Remit IT Academy – working at Syntax IT Services in Pride Park where he has now secured a full time job.


We will publish some of the pictures from the trip when Eric returns.
