I graduated in Computing for Business at Aston University and joined Doris IT in May 2017. I am now currently on assignment at Halfords working as an IT Project Manager. Halfords is a very friendly place to work at where I can work with all sorts of people and get involved in social events, as well as managing challenging and interesting IT projects.
Doris IT has given me the first step into IT and enabled me to hone my skills and develop. I have been able to take my PRINCE2 exams and train for a career in IT. With Doris IT giving me this opportunity, I feel assured that I will be able to develop a career which suits me and which I can be successful at.
My day-to-day activities involve, understanding the requirements of technical projects, project planning, monitoring the current and future spend, making sure my projects are on track for each stage, and go-live date. Most of my time is taken communicating and maintaining relationships with both my project stakeholders and internal IT colleagues. In order to sustain this I have to keep a good rapport with my customers and meet their demands and to try to deliver the project whilst meeting time/budget/resource constraints.
Outside of work I am a keen follower of various sports such boxing, football (huge Manchester United fan), cricket and tennis. In my spare time I enjoy going to gym regularly and catching up with my favourite TV shows.
