SyntheSys sponsors bright young star to complete his BSC Hons Computing and IT Degree

We are pleased to announce that Whitby born Luke McCarthy has joined the SyntheSys team under a sponsorship scheme that will enable him to earn his degree whilst working for the company. 

Luke completed A levels at Scarborough Sixth Form College, leaving with a Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) in IT, a BTEC in Business and a full A level in Applied Science.  He has been working with SyntheSys since July 2016 where his work has been focused on the development of a web based portal for SyntheSys’ clients. 

As a result of the impressive work Luke has invested over the past six months, we are pleased to have formulated a scheme whereby Luke is able to work for us whilst studying towards his Computing and IT degree with the Open University. 

Luke’s primary goal here at SyntheSys is to deepen his understanding and knowledge of software and systems development and we are excited to have him on board.  He said ‘I am looking forward to the challenge of working alongside SyntheSys’ experts who are leaders in their fields.  I am quite overwhelmed by the depth of experience of everyone from so many walks of life in systems engineering and training.  Specialising in software development with my degree will fit in with my SyntheSys work.’ 

John S Hartas, SyntheSys Managing Director commented ‘We are delighted to be able to support Luke in his studies whilst also benefitting from his existing technical know-how and great work ethic.  For SyntheSys, we feel this reflects on our commitment to not only our employees, but to our local and wider communities.  We hear time and time again negativity in the media regarding the quality of young graduates and we feel here is an opportunity for us to help enrich a learning process so Luke will finish his degree with both theoretical and practical skills.’

Luke has an interesting and rewarding journey ahead of him, we hope our community will join us in welcoming him to the team.
