I lead the Automation team and I love the fact that my role is so varied. As well as supporting the Automators, I also work closely with the Project Management, Development and Legal teams. My day-to-day involves fielding technical questions, scoping out projects, advising on approaches and overseeing releases to our internal and client facing servers.
Firstly, the people, we have a closely knit team and everyone works hard for each other. We have great comradery which creates a warm and friendly atmosphere. Secondly, the challenge, each day is different with new and exciting aspects to tackle each day. Finally, knowing what we do offers a benefit to other people.
A beekeeper, I had a fascination with bees, I would attempt to pick them up which often led to one or two incidents. When I was slightly older, I liked receiving parcels, so I decided that I wanted to be a postman. Eventually, I realised that I would be delivering the parcels and not receiving them which is not as fun. Some years later, I was introduced to coding and went into computing. Perhaps when I retire, I could keep bees and be a part-time postman assuming the postal service is not automated by then.
Skiing, I’ve not had the opportunity to ski but it looks fun
1. A crafting knife so I could make/build useful things.
2. Some sort of netting to stop me from getting bitten.
3. First aid kit and by that, I mean rum, I believe it can be used as an antiseptic and has other healing benefits.
