What is it like to work at Impact Computing?
For this it’s best if you hear from our Support Desk Team Leader Lewis and 1st Line Support Engineer Fox.
Impact Computing has honestly been a fantastic start to my career in IT and most days it doesn't feel like a job as I'm enjoying myself that much. Progressing up from a Junior Support Engineer I am now leading the Service Desk department and collectively we're an engaged, highly driven, skilled team of engineers. The company have taught me how to progress and the career progression here is great. I have always been able to express my ideas and creativity to those around me at Impact and it shows that as an individual I am making a real difference to the company. Above all else, I've been able to have a laugh with my team at our fantastic social events (thanks a lot COVID!)
Lewis - Support Desk Team Leader
I was quite scared joining Impact as it was my first proper IT job and I wanted to put my skills to the test, turns out there is so much in this field! I can honestly say I do not regret my choice joining Impact and I have learnt so much in little time, I have gone from being able to handle basic issues on a single machine to fully diagnosing complex network issues that affect dozens of people. My job role is quite diverse and challenging and I am given the tools to fully explore all options I am interested in within IT, at the moment I am focused on cloud services and how this can be incorporated into our clients and how this improves their business. Impact gives me the tools I need to help me learn more and become qualified in this field.
We all have a laugh and a joke, and we never take ourselves too seriously on the support desk which is great because it makes me enjoy my work more. We still maintain a highly professorial environment but at least we can have fun doing it!
