15 November 2018

Level 3 IT student Eddison Clarke has secured a job at 4D Data Centres Gatwick after attending a careers fair at Crawley College targeted at Business, IT and Media students.

Crawley College provides sector-specific careers fairs every year to give students the opportunity to find out more about the wide range of job opportunities in their chosen industry.

More than 15 employers including Total Gas & Power, Royal Bank of Scotland and 4D Data Centres attended the college careers fair earlier this year to meet students studying Business, IT and Media.

IT student, Eddison Clarke, impressed 4D Data Centres at the careers fair and has now successfully secured a job as 1st Line Support Engineer in the Gatwick centre.

Jack Bedell-Pearce, Managing Director of 4D Data Centres, said “Eddison approached our stand at the careers fair with great enthusiasm. He noticed we were experiencing difficulties when setting up our display of servers and immediately came over to offer solutions.”

4D Data Centres is an established cloud, connectivity and colocation provider, helping organisations to reduce costs and improve efficiencies across many areas.

“We thought Eddison would be a great match for the company and we encouraged him to apply for a job with us. After successfully completing the standard recruitment process, we’re pleased he is now working for us in our Gatwick centre and is continuing to develop his knowledge and skills through additional training provided by the company.”

Construction, Engineering, Hospitality and Health & Social Care students have also attended careers fairs at the college in previous years.  

James Izzard, Work Readiness and Careers Co-ordinator at Crawley College, said “Every year we give students the opportunity to meet with employers and get advice on what recruiters are looking for. Students leave our careers fairs with confidence and on many occasions with work experience opportunities which makes it hugely successful.”
