Gap Year Student Praise

23rd July 2021

Last year Veethree Technologies welcomed Joe Constable to the software team as a Trainee Test Engineer, joining for a gap year after making what some would now agree a wise move deferring his start at Manchester University due to the unfolding pandemic.

Joe has spent the year working alongside Veethree’s talented software engineers to gain valuable industry experience, as well as networking and building relationships.

During his time Joe has been primarily working on pre-release testing of software applications. Highlighting any bugs or issues and consulting with relevant members of the Software Team to work to fix any found. Additionally, Joe has expanded his coding abilities by taking responsibility for feature additions to existing software applications.

Joe Constable said “I have enjoyed my time at Veethree, working with experienced engineers helped develop my skills and I would like to thank the team for the opportunity”.

Ninteen-year-old Joe completed his A levels last year and was given an unconditional offer to study Computer Science at The University of Manchester, due to commence in September 2020, however Joe deferred his application due to the pandemic choosing to gain industry experience. Joe has a highly academic background with a specific interest in computer science and software.

Neil Campbell, General Manager said “we were delighted to welcome Joe to the team for his gap year, Veethree Technologies have made it a priority to continue to work with talented individuals to build their expertise and Joe has been a fantastic member of the team.”

Phil Beeson, Software Engineering Team Leader said “Joe has been a fantastic asset to the team over the last year, his tenacity and attention to detail have been critical to a number of projects we have successfully delivered over the last year.  I wish him every success in his studies over the next few years and would welcome him back at any time.”
