I didn’t really leave school with many qualifications but I was always interested in IT. When I moved to The Sheffield College I got the opportunity to retake my GCSEs alongside the IT qualification I was taking which was great. The college pushed me to succeed and guided me through my qualifications.
I was then able to go on to university to study more of the software side of IT and then I did a placement year. Having the foundation that I gained from college really set me up to explore my options and opened up lots of new doors.
I’m currently going for interview for the role of Lead Software Engineer at Plusnet. Each day is very different because I work with so many people across the business doing lots of different things from automation testing to mentoring the younger guys.
