Stephen Hall

Technology Consultant

When I left school, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do as a career. I spent several years working for United Parcel Services and the Royal Mail. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at both companies mainly due to the people I was working with. Who knew working in the early hours of the morning, normally in the freezing cold could be such a laugh.

After so long I knew that the career I wanted wasn’t in that line of work. Technology was a growing area and I had an interest in computers so that was the next logical step. I spent two years at Darlington College studying an IT Diploma followed by three years at Northumbria University studying Ethical Hacking.  By this time, I’d had enough of education and wanted to start working in IT.

Over the last five years I have worked in IT Support related roles within the manufacturing and energy industries. Some of the things I’ve worked on are: managing a VDI environment for 500+ users, supporting manufacturing systems on production lines, windows 7 rollout project across multiple countries and general 1st/2nd line IT support duties. From that I’ve acquired a good technical understanding of most things IT.  I still have lots to learn and I’m keen on developing myself further technically. I have a strong interest in virtualisation, networking and security.

My role within Waterstons is working on the Service Desk under Managed Services. The role has a lot of variety, no one day is the same which suits me very well. It is technically challenging and rewarding at the same time. The team are amazing, so many intelligent people who are always helpful and approachable.

Outside of work I enjoy keeping fit by going to the gym, occasionally running and more recently 5 a side with the lads from Waterstons. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. That’s usually spent going out for food or for several sociable beers in Durham. I like watching UFC and boxing when the big clashes are on.
