The company has doubled its workforce over the past two years and is looking to grow further

Newcastle based telecoms company TMT First is expanding by recruiting six people to become repair technicians and train with the Digital Device Repair Technician Academy.

In partnership with Samsung and other UK businesses, the academy was founded in January 2020 to fill a skills shortage and train technicians and engineers for the future.

Those who are successful will be paid to partake in TMT’s fully funded four-week training course and if they pass, they will get a guaranteed job as a Samsung technician.

Company founder Adam Whitehouse said: “Trainees would spend up to four weeks in our fully funded Training Academy, where a dedicated trainer will teach both the theory and practical elements of repairing Samsung mobile phones, watches, and tablets before they get to repair actual devices alongside our existing team of industry leading technicians. 

“When they successfully graduate from our repair academy, they’ll be guaranteed a job with us, with a chance to progress up through our business for those that work hard and are looking for a career progression. 

“Many of our team today, who also came through the academy have already started rising up the ranks as they’ve grown in experience and confidence.”

Founded in 2006, TMT has also recently appointed Liam Seprini as its new environmental and sustainability officer- in line with its partnership with Ecologi to help offset carbon emissions.

It has also won four BusinessLive awards in 2021, including Business of the Year.
