Scott Savoury

Senior Technology Consultant

I grew up wanting to be an architect, graphic designer; I even toyed with the idea of becoming an electrician or a policeman. Up until 4th year at school I hadn’t taken any computing subjects but after trying everything else I begged my teacher to allow me crash Higher computing. This was the beginning of my journey in IT.

I then left school in 5th year and completed an NHD in computing technical support at Forth Valley College then, yes you guessed it I started working as…

…A flat roofing estimator! Weird isn’t it?

After that I got on the IT career track working as a service desk engineer for a college, then a boarding school where I got to try my hand at a Service Manager role in which I was tasked with implementing an improved service desk solution and creating the school’s first official SLAs and various processes to assist with IT operations. I have since then worked in an investment bank providing operational support for a workspace technology platforms team and as a consultant for a large manage services provider where I got to work on all sorts, from airports and manufacturing firms to travel companies, distribution and logistics companies to law firms, theatres and even a ferry company.

It’s the summer of 2019 and I am now in the Technology Projects team here at Waterstons, I had never heard of the company but in the first few days I was immediately sold! The values, people and the overall culture of the business is incredible and is really aligned with me as an individual. I am hoping to take all my experience gained over the past few years and use it to hopefully make a positive difference to new clients with new challenges and meet some amazing people along the way.

When I’m not at work …

When I am not working, I will normally be in one of three states; Eating, sleeping or spending money on something daft that I don’t really need.

Being a foodie, I love eating out and socialising with family and friends. When the Scottish weather allows it, I enjoy hiking and walking for days until I can’t feel my legs. When the weather is typically not great you can find me at the gym not stretching properly and ticking off the many injuries related to poor form.
