Tell us about your career story so far

I’m a field technical support engineer at Westermo UK Technical Support, and I haven’t stopped since I started three years ago! I’ve been all around the country numerous times, run many training courses to help educate customers about Westermo, and presented at several seminars (some hosted at Solent). I’ve also spent a few weeks in Sweden visiting the factory where we manufacture our products.

I spend a fair bit of time on the road working with customers on site around the country. My day to day role is answering the phone/emails, pre/post sales and running the Westermo Certified Engineers course.

This course is for you if you want to understand how data communication impacts our daily lives.

How did university prepare you for your career, and what's your favourite memory?

Solent helped me understand what professional organisations are looking for in an employee. My favourite memory has got to be inviting my CEO and Managing Director for Westmo’s 2017 Kick Off, which was hosted at the University.

What tips would you give to someone wanting a career in your industry?

Never think you're underqualified for a job.
