Tom joined us in mid-August as our new Trainee Junior System Engineer! His role will be supporting our service desk team for all incoming client queries. Why not find out a little about him with our welcome questionnaire…
What is your professional background?
I am a Mathematics graduate but have ended up working in more IT-focused roles in recent years.
If you could only keep three apps on your phone, which would you keep?
WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and YouTube. WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are important to me as I like to be able to catch up with others or contact them about something important. YouTube is an app that can keep me entertained for hours, no matter where I am.
What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?
I would consider my biggest achievement to be obtaining my Mathematics degree. I put in a lot of work for it, and I had a great time while at university. It is great when all that hard work is rewarded at the end.
If you had an extra hour in the day, what would you do with it?
Sleep, as we all need a bit more sleep.
Are you team iPhone or team Android?
Team Android, as it is all I have ever used. I don’t mind Apple products though.
Who is the most famous person you’ve met?
Norwich City goalkeeper Angus Gunn went to my secondary school and his older sister was in my year. He obviously wasn’t famous at the time, but he is now.
If you could be any character in a video game, who would you be?
Yoshi from the Mario games. A loveable character who is a good guy, which is what I always try to be.
If you could have invented or created anything, what would it be?
There is a water purification technology called Midomo. It purifies water using the motion of its wheels and I have always been amazed by the simplicity of it, and the impact it can have in areas of the world that do not have access to clean drinking water.
If you were a wrestler what would be your entrance theme song?
Hero – Skillet, a song that I really like, and it would get me pumped up before my bout.
If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
Professional sportsman (preferably football or cricket) as I really enjoy my sport. I would be happy doing any sport really. Other than that, I like the idea of being a sports commentator, travelling around the country/world watching and talking about sport.
