An engineering student has secured a traineeship at an award-winning design firm.
Ali Gunes, 19, of Percival Street, Finsbury, started work last month at Conisbee, after applying for the role through an Islington Council’s scheme.
The position is a work-based training scheme, allowing him to learn and providing the company with a keen pair of hands.
Mr Gunes said: “Working as well as studying suits me better as I feel I am gaining a greater understanding of the industry and I can also get the experience that so many jobs now ask for.”
Tim Attwood, a director at Conisbee, said: “ Ali was an outstanding candidate from a strong list provided to us.
“It is even better that he is local, and I am delighted that we can help a local young person start their career.”
