Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT (Software Development) student Jack Day (pictured: far right) contacted DigitalDinos, based at Lakeside, North Harbour to see if he could gain some work experience.

Jack's skills in website development and his hard work ethic impressed owners Carl Hewitt and Reece Matthews.

After just four weeks of work experience with the company (working two days a week), he wowed the team so much that Carl and Reece decided to offer Jack a permanent job as Lead Web Developer.

Upon joining the team Jack said: ‘I'm really pleased to be working at DigitalDinos. Everyone has been really supportive and helped me to get used to the world of work. I found my work placement really interesting. Thanks to Carl and Reece taking the time to read my email I'm now starting a brand new career.'

Reece Matthews, Managing Director, said: 'Everyone at DigitalDinos is pleased to welcome Jack to the team. Jack was just so good that he created his own job! He's already proved his worth and helped us to increase our capacity to grow.’

Carl Hewitt, Managing Director, added: ‘He's been an asset to the team since day one. It just shows what initiative and hard work can achieve - regardless of age!'
