Minster Micro delighted with New Engineer Recruits


With skilled IT engineers in such demand, Kidderminster-based Minster Micro Computers 

Ltd, is delighted to have secured not one, but four new trainee engineers. 

Minster Director, Mrs Susan Marlow, stated: "Recruiting the right calibre of young people 

continues to be a challenge, and like many other businesses in our sector looking to recruit 

and train budding young talent there’s no shortage of applicants, just applicants with the 

right skillsets”.

20-year old Ryan, who is studying Business Information Technology at university successfully 

secured his 12-month placement as part of his university degree course, whilst 19-year old 

Rheece, 18-year old Alex and the youngest of the apprenticeship group Esmée secured their 

positions with Minster through the Worcestershire County Council’s Apprenticeship 


Susan continued: “All have the right aptitude, interests and attitude to become, what we 

believe, successful IT engineers. Their current technical capacity marries well with their keen 

interest in learning. Alongside this, they all have fantastic, enthusiastic personalities that 

can’t be taught, only encouraged!”

All four budding engineers will be given training on a range of products such as Microsoft,

SAP, Pegasus business software and 3CX, as well as receiving individual training alongside 

Minster’s product development and support engineers. They join an established team 

delivering business software, hardware and IT support services to customers both locally 

and across the surrounding counties, ranging in size from SME’s to corporate bodies with 

large multi-user networks.

Added Susan: “This is an exciting time for Minster and we look forward to the next 12-

months as our new recruits receive specialist product and workplace training designed to 

ensure they are fully competent engineers capable of joining Minster’s engineering team at 

the end of their training period.

“Once they have successfully completed their courses, all four trainees will have the

opportunity to secure full time positions with Minster.”

Minster would like to wish all Made in the Midlands Members a good Christmas break and 

a prosperous new year!
