Lee is 33 years old and is profoundly deaf. In May 2022, he received a distinction for completing a level 3 apprenticeship at Maersk, and was subsequently offered a full-time position as a software engineer within the DevOps team at Maersk.
The apprenticeship programme enabled Lee to realise his dream of working in technology, which is why he wanted to serve as an ambassador to inform others about the availability of apprenticeships that will help them realise their aspirations.
Lee now heads up our team of apprentice ambassadors across the SE who attend school, college and careers events spreading the word about apprenticeships.
His first job for us was to co-present the regional National Apprenticeship Awards at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in Woking on Oct 20th 2022. He did a great job alongside our SEAAN Chair Elizabeth Flegg.
