A Day in the Life of the IT Manager
How does your day start once you arrive at Affinity?
Every day starts by logging in to check my emails, Microsoft issue advisories, network status, and any faults that appear as users start their day.
List some of the key responsibilities you have:
- IT Hardware faults
- User Accounts and Access
- Phone System & Mobiles
Why did you want to become an IT Manager?
Natural progression from helping users with faults, configuring operating systems & phones to managing everything.
What do you enjoy the most about your job role?
The varied role, I can honestly say that two days are never the same and when I walk in the office in the morning, I have no idea what will transpire or what questions will need answered.
What do you like best about working for Affinity?
I’ll give 3 simple reasons;
As IT Manager I am given the responsibility to look after all the Information and Communication assets, I appreciate the trust between myself and management to deliver a service with minimal constraints.
The openness and friendliness of the company, when the Management say they operate an open door, they genuinely mean it.
Coming from a large Company where you are a name on a piece of Paper, in my opinion Affinity are different and do care about each individual, as a company Affinity are still relatively young, however as a team we are moving forward.
