For me IT is not “just a job” but also a passion. A passion that started in 1999 when I bought my 1st Windows PC and has led me to places I never thought it would. For the next 14 years I struggled to get any IT work due to rampant experience discrimination within British Industry.
After gaining my MCITP Enterprise Desktop Support Technician (Windows 7) and a SVQ3 IT Professionals qualification I finally got my break in 2014 when I was hired on what was, effectively, a zero-hour contract.
I am a volunteer with Reusing IT, a computer reuse charity I have been involved in since 2003 that provides refurbished computers to various projects in Africa as well as charitable organizations and low income families in Scotland.
Through my voluntary work with Reusing IT I have been involved in deployments in Sierra Leone (in a joint project with Mercy Ships) and Kenya as well as being involved in a project with West Lothian Council to provide computers to low income families in this area. The joint project with Mercy Ships did not only involve managing a Windows XP deployment in Sierra Leone but was a 9-month trip where I was also involved in providing IT support on board ship before, during and after Sierra Leone.
