Our IT Stories

“The name really does describe our working environment… everything works so naturally.”

Patrick

Patrick, IT Service Desk Team Leader

In my earlier years...

I attended Amersham and Wycombe College near London where I studied electronic-media – a course designed to equip me with both technical and creative skills that are needed for industry standard IT technologies, such as game/movie development, animation or photography.

I achieved a Triple Distinction (DDD) – and then moved on to a University degree for animation and visual effects to further my knowledge and experience in this area.

How I got here…

I started working in a technology department in House of Fraser as a sales assistant selling Laptops and TVs, moving on to various retail roles including Phones4U.

After Phones4U I was offered a job at Thomas Cook, helping transition their IT from an outsourced company to in-house, eventually working in Thomas Cook’s IT service centre. It’s here I found my passion and drive within the IT sector.

Naturally (pun intended), I applied for a job with IT Naturally when I heard they were recruiting and found myself in an interview. Seeing just how passionate and invested the people are, I decided IT Naturally is where I wanted to work!

Why I like my job…

My job is challenging, the pace is fast but steady, and there is a lot of opportunity for development. Teamwork and collaboration here is second to none. It’s great to work in an environment that houses many like-minded people with innovative ideas, while everyone welcomes the thoughts of all employees, no matter the position or level.

The name really does describe our working environment… everything works so naturally. From the moment you start at the company you instantly feel as though you slot into the team and are just as important as anyone else in supporting the growth of the company.

What it’s like to work here…

It provides a good level of fun and humour, in an environment that enables you to truly enjoy your job and where people make you feel appreciated. I never leave work worrying about what I have done, but instead optimistic about what the next day will bring.
