Hugo Simkiss

Junior Systems Engineer Trainee

Technology is such an interesting and ever-evolving field and in my role I am fortunate to be able to expand my knowledge whilst undertaking hands-on projects to support our clients.

As part of the Service Desk, we work together to deliver advice to a wide range of organisations and I assist the team by helping to resolve issues and respond to enquiries, grasping new technologies and processes as I go.

My experience and values

I previously worked in Event Management and HR but decided to make the switch to IT, starting a new career based on a long-held recreational interest in technology. I have been fixing, building and configuring various devices for years and have achieved the Comp TIA A+, Network and Security certifications. I can now build on this in a position that allows me to study for qualifications and work within the industry.

Life outside Breakwater

When I’m not in the Breakwater office I enjoy music and music culture, philosophical, scientific and political literature, cooking, tennis and football. I’m also happy just socialising with friends, playing video games and catching up on the latest gripping TV series to wind-down.

"Prompt response and appropriate questions asked to ensure all was set up as required, thanks Hugo"
