An Interview with Giorgio,
Network and Server Administrator

If you enjoy working with data and networking systems, with a focus on problem solving and driving efficiency, then a career in information technology (IT) may be for you. To learn more about what that work entails at Reynolds, I spoke with Giorgio, a network and server administrator in the Reynolds office in Birmingham, U.K.

Tell me a little bit about your life, education, and work history before Reynolds.

After college I worked in a law firm for just over four years, but eventually left my legal career to pursue a long-standing passion for IT. I was lucky to find the role of data center technician with Reynolds and then moved into the PC Support role where I worked with end user support and day to day IT operational tasks. From here, I moved onto the NSA team, which focuses on business related IT project work as well as being an escalation point for end user support where required.

What made you want to join Reynolds?

I found the position very appealing as Reynolds offered fantastic support and the opportunity to progress my career beyond an entry-level role. The company seemed very interested in my personal qualities and aspirations, which has allowed me to grow into the position and build a solid understanding of Reynolds and the standards expected of me.

Describe your typical day. What do you enjoy about your role?

The great thing about NSA is no two days are alike. They can vary from assisting with day to day operational tasks all the way to troubleshooting major outages. We are often planning and executing business wide IT changes and improvements whilst minimising any impact for our customers. The role involves a lot of discussion within the team to ensure the smooth running of the IT infrastructure with minimal downtime and impact. We all get involved with each others projects, which enables us all to grow as a team.

What is one thing that surprised you about this position?

I would say the willingness and support from other team members to aid me in my learning and job development. The time and attention I’m given is much more than I expected. It really encourages a take-initiative attitude and a willingness to learn and develop. I really appreciate the support, flexibility and positive attitude of my team and management.

What do you like most about working at Reynolds?

The support and mentoring from peers has helped me develop my technical knowledge quickly. I have also been given the push and confidence to involve myself in IT discussions, with management and the wider IT team, where my opinion feels valued. The people surrounding me are what makes Reynolds a great place to work!
