We are delighted to welcome our latest addition to the IT support team – Alfie Fielder.
Alfie has joined as an Junior Helpdesk Engineer and he will be dealing with remote support incidents with immediate effect. Having been looking for a suitable person to join the team for the last few months, we went through a competitive recruitment process which resulted in Akita offering Alfie the role in February.
Alfie brings internal IT support experience to the team as, in his previous role, he provided in-house IT support to a London-based sports management company. However, Alfie’s interest in computing started at primary school (making some of us here feel very old!) and at secondary school numerous courses such as Cisco CCNA helped Alfie learn more about networking and the configuration of switches and routers.
We are delighted to have Alfie on board to further bolster the technical team and we all wish him every success in his Akita career.
In other staff news, we are on the look-out for an administration assistant to provide maternity cover for Charley. With an arrival due at the end of May, Charley will be on maternity leave from the end of April and we look forward to her return in early 2017!
