How Harry is building a better working world

“In my work establishing the people proposition for our Managed Services center in Newcastle, I have developed the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship roles for school leavers. These apprenticeships help to create more opportunities for young people in Newcastle, where youth unemployment is high and there are fewer opportunities to seek higher education.”
