Next up in our Meet The Team is one of our IT Technician’s Sarah Neil. Let’s hear about her favourite gadgets and what she wanted to be when she was 5 years old!
How long have you been part of the ITHD team?
I have been part of the IT Hotdesk team for almost 4 years, I started on December 2nd so was eased into the role over the Christmas period.
When you were 5 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
The 8th member of S club 7, don’t judge I was 5! I loved trying to copy their dance moves whilst on the TV and had their magazine subscription, this might have been more for the sparkly accessorises that came with it though.
What do you most enjoy about the work you do?
I enjoy I get to be hand’s on with cutting edge technology on a daily basis whilst supporting our clients and of course the satisfaction of working out a tricky issue.
How do you troubleshoot IT issues?
Take a methodical approach and try the simple fixes before progressing to the more complex timely fixes.
How do you keep current on the IT industry and emerging trends and technologies?
I use RSS feeds to pull in the latest stories from multiple tech sites and watch TED talks on upcoming tech.
What are your top three favourite gadgets or technology?
My phone, Fitbit & Macbook
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Barcelona, I have been many times but would never pass up the opportunity to go back. It’s a beautiful city with amazing architecture and lots to do. I always stay in the centre so I am in walking distance to the beach, harbour, shops and a metro station so I can squeeze in as many different activities as possible
