Introducing you to our Finance Administrator – Will! He takes centre stage in this months Meet The Team. Read on to find out all about Will…
My role has many names: The Enforcer, Master of Coin, or just Finance Administrator. I basically handle the accounts.
I have worked at Coretek for 14 months and this is my first job in IT. I only do the accounts, but I’ve had to learn a lot of technical jargon in order to understand it all.
If I told you that, then many people would no longer not know it.
I’m more into TV series’ at the moment. (Discovered The X-Files a couple of years ago, so slowly making my way through all of those). I don’t really have a favourite film, just whatever I fancy at the time. Right now I’m the mood for a Batman film, probably The Dark Knight.
My partner and I have recently bought a house, so most of my spare time is spent doing DIY now. At the moment I’m trying to spend time in the garden, getting it ready to grow some food!
The more I think about this, the more issues I can find! I know a popular one is to fly… but in the film ‘Chronicle’, one of the chaps gets struck by lightning! And Matilda’s power just no longer works – imagine having that power taken away from you… If I had to pick something, I would probably just control time. To be able to speed up or slow down time could be quite helpful, as long as you don’t consider the drawbacks…
Pizza. But it has to be right. At a restaurant, I’d have a thin crust BBQ chicken. Take away, I usually go for a meaty one (with garlic mayo dip). Home-made can go either way, depending on how we feel. One of our first house purchases was a pizza oven for the garden; I’m hoping to get lots of use out of that this year!
I quite like birds, so I’d probably pick the hyacinth macaw… It’s basically the biggest, bluest flying parrot around – pretty incredible!
I’d probably go with taste – I would hate to eat or drink and not be able to taste things. Imagine not being able to taste pizza! Or coffee! I don’t really want to think about that any more.
I’ve always wanted to restore a classic car. It’s something that I can still see myself doing at some point in the future, I just need the time. And space. And money.
Take a look at our Meet The Team page to meet the rest of the team!
A new feature that we are going to start rolling out every month onto our blog is ‘Meet The Team’. This month we introduce our newest member to the Coretek team and that is Austen Petty! So we asked him a few questions about himself…
I am a Junior Support Technician at Coretek and I’m part of the Servicedesk team.
I have worked in IT for 18 months, including my apprenticeship last year at Perins School.
I used to be in 3 bands, 2 at school and 1 outside of school. I played a tenor steel pan, bass guitar and cornet.
Probably Rush Hour 2, just a great mix of action and comedy.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing sports with friends like Tennis, Badminton and Snooker. I also do a bit of buying and selling on eBay.
I would like to be able to fly or breathe underwater, those 2 would be very cool if it were possible.
Another difficult one with so much choice! I would say a top quality lasagna is in the top 3 foods and the others must have some type of meat as part of it :).
I’d rather be a predator than prey like an eagle because their eyesight is 5x sharper than humans so they could see an ant from a ten-story building or a rabbit from 4 miles away. And the best bit is being able to fly!
I would say family, as I don’t know what I would do if they didn’t exist.
I have always wanted to travel round the world, like around the world in 80 days. Also, I would like to go deep sea scuba diving as this is something else I haven’t done but would love to.
