Email Address:

About 2 years ago I was given the chance to meet Matt Phillips as Exeter College had arranged a mock interview for us to gain more experience for job interviews. At the meeting that I had with Matt I learnt about IT Champion, and knew from that point on that I was adamant that I wanted to join the IT industry.

About a year later the college course that I was on needed me to attend work experience and after having a think about it I asked IT Champion and I was allowed to have a week in the office. I loved every moment of working with the team, working with the computers, and learning the industry. At the end of the week I had a long chat with Matt, and he asked to do a level 3 with apprenticeship. Now I’m working in the workshop and still am just as enthusiastic as ever!

In my spare time I enjoy working on computers and try to do skiing when I can, I’m also saving up to do a skydiving course. I also own 2 small dogs and I’m training them to talk – when I get them to the issue is that they are terrible liars.
