Ewan is an IT Assistant in our administration department.
When did you join Greene & Greene and what is your current role?
I joined Greene & Greene in August 2019 as an IT Apprentice. This was a 2-year apprenticeship to qualify as an Infrastructure Technician studying with West Suffolk College. On completing my apprenticeship, I was promoted to IT Assistant.
Please tell us about your career to date
I joined Greene & Greene straight from college, so this has been my first professional role. Before starting my apprenticeship, I studied computing and knew I wanted to keep developing my skills and an apprenticeship was a great way to get hands on experience whilst also getting my qualifications.
What attracted you to join the firm?
Partly the size of the firm, this has meant it has been a great place to start my career as I’ve had exposure to many situations I might not have done had I been part of a bigger firm. I enjoy talking to all the teams and learning about all aspects of the technology the firm use. I enjoy being able to offer a personal service, understanding everyone’s needs and how to approach them.
The firm is incredibly friendly and has a great culture and working environment which became clear from day one.
Describe a typical day
No two days are the same! I often have project work and a plan in my head for the day but it can all go out the window when I get to the office. I love that every day is different and offering support to everyone whether they are in the office or working from home. I spend a lot of time researching new technologies and enjoy working out how this can help the teams.
Is there anything you would like to say to prospective employees?
Greene & Greene is a great place to work. Everyone is friendly, approachable and patient and encouraging when it comes to personal development. The firm recognise achievements and make me feel valued. The offices in central Bury St Edmunds are really nice and in a great location – which helps for lunchtime strolls and after work drinks!Learn more about Focus
