Administering security solutions
The ability to troubleshoot hardware issues. I can build PCs from scratch, and diagnose issues with laptops as well as most Apple Mac issues.
After over a decade in the creative world (Graphic Design and UI/UX deployment), I needed a change and started from scratch in 2019. My ambition and hunger to consume IT skills as lead me to be of a small but very efficient IT team. My job is varied and fun.
I love my new career supporting the staff, creating policies and bringing new tech into the business.
Look after tickets serving 1st line for all of UK, Ireland and ODI
Process hardware onboarding, and 1-1 staff onboarding; introduce them to the Microsoft ecosystem, answer their questions, and be their one point of contact for all IT issues.
Respond to tickets within 1 hour if possible; solve tickets within 4
Changed the culture of OD UK; before I arrived, our ticketing system was negotiable; which led to misleading reporting (solved), an accurate history of issues (solved) and a formal and unified shift to change how staff interface with IT, policies and security

Pushed Org-wide transition from on-prem laptops to Azure. I sold the campaign by calling in an MOT (which isn’t technically correct but is more palpable to staff.
Front-line support; so, I'm the focal point for 90% of first contact with IT. I’m here to solve hardware, login issues, some comms problems, printing, networking, WIFI, SharePoint, Teams as well as many others
I keep the wheel turning. Because I respond quickly, I give our UK staff the tools and information to serve OD and the greater good with maximum effort.
I ran regular workshops called Terry Tech Tips; online sessions answering Q&As regarding all aspects of IT, from poor Wi-Fi issues, home printers, the relationship between Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint
