Around a year ago I was given an opportunity for a discussion regarding taking a new step in my career. A step that’s is arguably one of the largest you can take which would see me move from being an IT technician in an inner city primary school to sitting in upper management at a 5 school MAT which also looks after 6 other schools for IT support.
At the time I didn’t think it was possible but I’d set myself the challenge many years ago to achieve a full management position by the time I was 25, which is what I was able to do.
Fast forward 10 months and my feet still haven’t quite touched the floor, from trust wide projects around data backups, to new partnerships, allowing staff to believe in technology and keep us safe and secure with GDPR/Cyber security.
Since moving into this role it has also given me the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other like minded individuals across the globe and provide me with a me platform to be able to share my knowledge through keynote speaking at events.
I have been very grateful for all the opportunities I have been given in life but the proof is in the pudding. If you set your mind to something you can achieve anything. In under 7 years I went from walking out of 6th form to overseeing 11 schools, 6 team members and over 10,000+ users.
