Introducing our new 2018 graduates

By Ryan Smith on August 1, 2018

We're excited to welcome two new graduates to Lead Tech.

Getting an opportunity to really kick-start your career when you come out of university is what most graduates yearn for.

At Lead Tech, we run a company-wide graduate scheme, providing opportunities in digital marketing, web development, and across all aspects of our business.

We successfully started the graduate scheme in 2017 with PPC graduate Patrick Curran, who is going from strength to strength. He’s a valued member of the Lead Tech team, and now we introduce two new graduates who are set to become key to our future plans.

Ben Parker, PPC Graduate

Ben is originally from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, so not too far from Lead Tech’s North Leeds office. He studied Business and Management at Leeds Beckett University, while also working as a Duty Manager for Rossett Sports Centre. Developing his skills in our PPC department means Ben will be a key part of generating financial advice leads to our partners.

When he’s not aiming to be Lead Tech’s next PPC wizard he enjoys playing football and watching movies.

Shannon Holmes, Graduate Developer

Shannon is from Teesside but now resides in Leeds after moving here for university. Another Leeds Beckett alumni, Shannon studied a BSc in Computing, finishing her degree in Summer 2018. Shannon joins our development team at a critical time and is being thrown straight in at the deep end with some exciting projects.

Outside of work Shannon enjoys travelling and film photography. She also speaks Spanish (to some extent, she says) and is currently learning to skateboard!

The Lead Tech Graduate Scheme

Lead Tech’s graduate scheme continues, with people and talent partner Stephen Marston on the lookout for those with serious potential.

“Following on from our first successful graduate scheme last year, I am delighted to welcome Shannon and Ben to the company. We’ve found through introducing graduates into our teams, we are able to utilise their fresh perspective on Lead Tech to disrupt current processes and ultimately improve performance in teams.

“I’m looking forward to seeing Ben and Shannon develop their careers at Lead Tech. Welcome to the family!”
