TDSi is pleased to welcome Oscar Johnson as its new Apprentice Product Engineer. Oscar is currently studying for a Higher National Certificate (HNC) at Bournemouth and Poole College for two years, but will continue as a Degree Apprentice for a further four years, with a permanent role at TDSi alongside his studies.
TDSi’s Managing Director, John Davies commented, “It’s great to welcome Oscar to TDSi. He’s the first candidate to take up a higher-level apprenticeship at TDSi and he’ll be a great asset to our development team, as we ramp up product development and augment products in the GARDiS family and ecosystem. The security industry is leading the way on the apprenticeship front, with initiatives through Skills for Security (part of the BSIA), and TDSi is excited about the energy and innovative thinking that apprentices bring to the table as our ‘Boomers’ retire.”
Having studied Engineering at college for the last year alongside his previous role in Occupational Health, 22-year-old Oscar is excited by his new role and the opportunities at TDSi. He stated, “This is a great opportunity for me and there is so much variation and job rotation within my new role. I am working within the Development Team, mainly alongside our Product Engineer, Russell Marande, to gain valuable experience and training in this cutting-edge technology company.”
Oscar recently swapped the surfer waves of the Gold Coast in Australia back to Bournemouth beach where he grew up “Living in Australia was an amazing experience and tied in well with my other great passions of surfing and photography. I still enjoy surfing and continue to sell photos through my Instagram.”
With an eye on the future of technology, Oscar is also excited to be joining a technology company which is helping to shape the future of security. “It is fascinating finding out how TDSI is adapting towards the future and seeing what great new products will be released before they are unveiled to the public! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me at TDSi.”
