How long have you been at Networks Centre?
Just over 1 year.
What made you want to join our team?
I was really impressed with the enthusiasm and passion when first meeting everyone along with the opportunity here in Scotland to build something from the ground up and be part if it from the beginning.
Tell us, what does a ‘normal’ day at work look like for you?
It’s hard to define any day as normal, the requirements and demands are so varied in this industry but the one consistent is the satisfaction in finding the right solution for the customer.
What is your favourite/most rewarding part of the job?
Overcoming a challenge, whether it’s helping a customer who thinks their job is going off track and I’ve been able to help get it back on course, or a colleague needs help finding the right solution. Being able to help someone resolve that never loses its satisfaction.

Ingenuity, passion and enthusiasm.
