As apart of our getting people into work scheme we are putting the spotlight on our new apprentice to share his experience at working at Intelligent Decisioning. Meet Our Infrastructure Technician Joe!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
My name is Joe, I’m 20 years old and I’m from a place called Bebington on the Wirral but I have moved to Nottingham to pursue a career in IT. My aim for the future is to climb as far up the ladder as I can and to continue to develop my IT skills, so I can be at the center of projects with big clients.
I am a highly motivated person who is passionate about new innovations, is always keen to take on new and unique challenges and isn’t scared of taking risks. I enjoy working at Intelligent Decisionings because no 2 days are ever the same, and I enjoy that I have been given responsibilities in client related projects from an early stage, showing the company has faith in me and is keen to get me involved as much as possible.
Give us some fun facts about you!
Outside of work, I am extremely passionate about sports and when I was younger represented either my school or local teams in 6 different sports. While nowadays I don’t play sports as much as I used to, I can still be found winning money on fantasy sports on Draftkings of a weekend and am very keen about my fitness and staying in shape.
Give us three emojis to describe your team!
I’ve chosen the handshake emoji as the team are all welcoming and supportive and always happy to help each other if someone is having an issue or needs to know anything. I chose the running emoji as a lot of the office are keen runners and some of us can be seen running around Strelley of an afternoon on a nice day. Finally, I chose the fire emoji as this is a very passionate team and this team all have a desire to improve themselves on a day to day basis and to carry out our work in the best way possible.
What have you enjoyed so far about being an Apprentice at Intelligent Decisioning?
I’ve really enjoyed the environment of the office so far, everyone is willing to work as hard as they can to bring the company forward but there’s a good balance of humor in the office to keep things from getting overly stressful. I’ve also enjoyed that the directors and senior staff have been very supportive of my progression and have made sure to always keep me busy. Additionally, I’ve enjoyed the down days I’ve been a part of so far as this has given me the opportunity to get to know the team outside of a working environment and has helped me settle in nicely to this job.
What has been one of your biggest challenges so far?
I would say one of my biggest challenges have been adjusting my lifestyle from being a student to now suit a 9-5 job and making sure I’m always in the right state of health to be on top of my game. Inside the office, I’d say my biggest challenges have been learning how to work with SharePoint and getting to grips with the Mercury Intranet this company provides, but I am relishing these challenges and have enjoyed the work I’ve been doing here so far.
