Imran Haq

Technology Consultant

Life before Waterstons

My first experience in industry with regards to computing, was my placement year during my Computer Network Technologies degree at Northumbria University. The position was with Andromeda Telematics Ltd (now Schneider Electric) and involved programming sensors and actuators to vary the light levels in accordance to weather conditions at Heathrow Terminal 5. I then moved into my first Cisco networking role at Bath Spa University and learned to apply the networking theory that I had learned during my degree and focussed on Cisco UC support. This quickly turned into a more in depth understanding that helped me land roles in Banking, Manufacturing and Aerospace sectors.

After completing roles with these organisations, I decided it was time to try to find a role back in the North East of England… This is when I discovered Waterstons and having joined in September 2018 I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far.

Life at Waterstons

I joined as part of the Technology Projects team as a Senior Technology Consultant to scope and deploy solutions in the networking and UC space. Delivering solutions end to end is what I particularly enjoy and although learning new technologies is sometimes challenging, it provides the opportunity to deliver projects and achieve customer objectives, which I take particular pride in. I am currently working on learning the Microsoft Skype for Business UC offering and look forward to delivering solutions around this technology.

Life outside Work

I particularly enjoy anything related to Cricket and football when not at work. I play for Ponteland Cricket Club as an opening bowler in the summer and like to attend the gym otherwise. I also have a passion for cryptocurrencies and also enjoy listening to Bhangra and Bollywood music from time to time although I do have three very young children to contend with for the TV remote or Amazon Alexa at Home.
