Meet the Team
After a couple of weeks break whilst we did some proper work we are back with the latest in our very popular Meet the Team feature. This week our Account Manager, Angus.
What’s your role at Your IT?
My role is Account Manager, I look after any potential new clients enquiring into Your IT Department for Support Contracts and Projects. I’m also involved in contact with existing clients who are looking for additional services or equipment. I represent Your IT at networking in the local area to raise awareness of our products and services and identify new opportunities for Your IT Department. I’m also occasionally a delivery boy and I answer the phone a lot!
Tell us a bit about your background:
I grew up in Suffolk causing havoc for every teacher that I encountered and somehow managed to go to University. From finishing University at Derby in Theatre Arts, I worked as a supervisor in a high-volume bar with aspirations of management but then decided I like my weekends so I moved into the world of estate agency. Then I found my first Graduate role at Your IT Department, and here I am!
What are the plans for the future?
My plans for the future involve keeping myself from becoming bankrupt as I have learnt I can spend money quicker than I earn or save it, so that would be my number 1 plan. I want to retire with a portfolio of properties that I would rent out so my main plan is to work out how that could be done by not planning assassinations of my family members. It has been a tempting thought though.
I think I would like to continue to increase my knowledge in the IT Sector especially as technology is only going one way and as my technical knowledge is limited in comparison to the IT Support guys, it would be nice to understand what they are talking about sometimes! I always like training to pick up different tips and tricks of how to be better at my job.
I aim to be at Your IT for some time (sorry Lee and Simon, you can’t get rid of me too quickly) I want to increase the clients we have and grow to a level which would let me manage a team of likeminded people who want to help our clients and potential new clients by making the most out of their IT Systems.
Away from work what do you like to do to relax?
