Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship

Employer description: 

CBC Computers was founded in December 1985, that's over 30 years of experience in the IT industry. The 80's was when IT was really starting to take off and become an integral part of business and later schools - CBC Computers were there to help. 

CBC split their offices between Doncaster and Sheffield, and opened themselves up to a new area and market. While doing this they gained valuable customer relationships and new staff members­. 

After the success of moving to Doncaster, CBC Computers saw the same opportunity to expand in Huddersfield. This decision meant they would hopefully create the same valuable relationships in Huddersfield as they did in Doncaster. CBC Computers formed partnerships with Huddersfield Town AFC, Local Authorities & many local schools. 

In 2004, CBC Computers decided that bringing all their staff under one roof would help the business to continue to grow while also helping with logistics. CBC Computers are now based in the heart of Sheffield city centre as it was key to maintain their relationships with the customers they valued in the areas they had previously had offices and being in the centre means that they would have easy access to all surrounding areas.

CBC has now been in operation for over 30 years with consistent growth over that period, this is testament to their business model which helps their customers achieve their IT goals through long-term partnerships. CBC Computers keep up with the landscape of the IT industry to make sure we offer our customers long-term solutions.

  • Source & Deploy
