I joined Doris IT in June 2016 after graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University with a first class degree in Business Management BA (Hons).
Since leaving university and joining Doris, my work has been heavily business management focused, and although I now have a new role within the IT environment which is challenging and continually testing my comfort zones, the support provided by both the Doris mentors and Doris trainees, on the same site as my current assignment, is superb. I’ve never felt overwhelmed and my new role is allowing me to grow in confidence within the new environment, as well as adding to my knowledge basis.
I am currently on my first assignment at a major UK Utilities company working as part of the Application support team. Although the work within the technical area has been challenging, it has encouraged me to look at investigating incidents and problems from a different perspective. I also support the implementation of business projects which are due to go live, and work with with servers, databases and SQL. Another aspect of my job also includes liaising with 3rd party application providers to create robust relationships and resolve issues as soon as possible.
Outside of work I enjoy keeping active and spend a large amount of time playing football whether it be competitive or with friends.
