Growing up, what did you want to be?
Growing up I always wanted to be a commercial pilot for an airline.
What is your role at The Unite Group and how did you end up where you are now?
My role here at The Unite Group is a Project Engineer. I have worked for a few companies since starting my career, first as a Service Desk Analyst before progressing to 2nd Line Support and then most recently I worked as an Operations Engineer for a SaaS company before going travelling through Asia for the latter half of 2022.
What does a typical day look like at The Unite Group?
So far during my time at The Unite Group, my days have varied a lot. Between working on projects in the office such as building new servers. As well as, remotely supporting customers with issues. I also have been getting out on site to onboard new customers and deliver projects. So it’s fair to say no two days have been the same since I started at The Unite Group just over a month ago.
What is your most and least favourite part of the job?
This is a tricky one to answer! Since I have been here just over a month, I will reserve judgement for now 🤐
What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement is actually still pending. But I have been working towards my private pilot’s license over the past couple of years. I will hopefully be completing it this summer. When this happens it will definitely be my biggest achievement!
What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
The best piece of advice I have been given is to take pride in what you do and try your best! I think this has helped me progress throughout my career.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?
I have not yet fully decided what I want to specialise in. However, I do know that I would like to be working in the cloud space, potentially either in Platform Engineering or as a Solutions Architect. So in 10 years’ time, I picture myself working in one of those areas.
How do you unwind outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy going karting regularly with a friend. Also, more recently I have taken up hiking. I have climbed some local hills in Northumberland and Yorkshire. Moreover, since I enjoy travelling and visiting new places in general I have also been learning Spanish in my free time to help me on future adventures.
Nic has fit into our team here at The Unite Group perfectly and has really hit the ground running. He is an asset to the projects team and we look forward to seeing him progress within his role with us.
