First, tell us a bit about you and your background.
I have worked for Datel since January 1998, and over the course of my career with Datel, I have held various posts - all of which have helped to build up the experience I now have to assist me with the areas of the business I look after.
I have a very good understanding of Datel’s business processes and feel that the years working in all of the different departments has helped immensely.
What does a typical day at Datel involve for you now?
I have a very varied role, which in turn means I have a very varied days. One minute I can be working on a sales order; the next I’m buying complex software, thinking through new reporting solutions, and even making sure the gardens are tidy!
I never know what I’m walking into each morning, and my days are definitely not clear-cut 9 to 5:30pm - but I love the variety my role brings.
What is the day-to-day working environment like?
Every day, I feel incredibly supported in my role. I have a lot of assistance from all of the staff at Datel, and I get a lot of support from the Directors, too.
What do you enjoy most about working at Datel?
I interact with most teams at Datel on a daily basis, and have a good relationship across all departments. I believe we all work for the common goal: keeping Datel at the top. But not only do we all work hard; we also have fantastic social events throughout the year that cement all the teams together.
Would you recommend Datel?
Of course, Datel is a brilliant company to work for. I just love working here. I’m very proud to say I work for Datel and very proud of the example set out by Alan.
