Charlie Martin

Technology Consultant

Life before Waterstons

I joined Waterstons in July 2018 for a year in industry as a technology consultant within the Managed Services team based in London. Prior to this I had been in my 2nd year of studying Computer Science at the University of Reading, while working part time at my university’s student bars.

Good networking led me to interact with Waterstons at Careers fairs and guest lectures, which allowed me to get an interest and also fill my desire to be part of the company. By November I attended their open evening, which allowed me to further network and meet more people within the business. Then 4 months later, a brief telephone interview and assessment day, later I was offered a job.

Life at Waterstons

My life here so far has included learning a tonne of information and meeting loads of new people. Initially based up in Durham for two weeks to meet the people in the Durham office before coming back down to London. Within my first days of being back in London I was on my first client site, ensuring their IT for their day to day business operations were running smoothly and looking at the potential ways to improve their IT infrastructure.

Life outside Waterstons

I have a keen passion for music despite not being able to play any instruments (although maybe one day I might make it into the Waterstons Band) I love going to gigs and festivals when I get the chance. I’m also a big gym goer, so it’s lucky there is a gym just below the London office, although the 6am wake ups to go can be a struggle. I have also been playing poker for the past 3 years and have even ran a society at my university to play it. Poker brings out the strategy and statistics side of people and I love the adrenaline of having a good hand but having to put on a straight face to hide it.
