What’s the Arqiva culture like?
Development is really big here. You’re supported from day one and encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities to progress. The team-spirit is excellent too with everyone pitching in to connect people around the globe.

It’s different from anywhere else I’ve worked. It’s really refreshing to work with people who recognise and appreciate a job well done. I’m very proud to be part of the team and I look forward to the many things we’re going to achieve together in the future.

Why did I want a career in IT?
It’s been a real passion of mine since childhood, so it was natural to turn my hobby into a career. I developed my IT skills across many different areas of the industrial computer industry, before focusing on IT security products.

What advice would you give to someone starting out in IT?
It takes experience and dedication to be successful.
