Idrees joins our IT support team as an IT Junior Technician, helping internal staff and colleagues with their IT and computing requirements. In this blog post, we get to know Idrees a bit better.
Why did you join Capita?
I wanted to seek new challenges in a big organisation, and Capita TI seemed like the perfect business for that.
Why did you want a role as an IT Technician?
I already have a few years of experience within the IT field. I’d really like to further develop my skills and knowledge, eventually progressing to higher levels within the business, and I believe that Capita TI holds these opportunities for me.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I’d love to be working as a contractor, still within IT, but with a choice of different projects to work on.
What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
What are your hobbies outside of work?
When I’m not solving IT and technical problems, I like to go to the gym or read books.
Do you speak any other languages?
I speak Punjabi and Urdu, to a fluent level.
Who inspires you?
Malcolm X, for his work pioneering human rights and race equality.
JFK, for his policies and support on the civil rights movement.
Mark Zuckerburg, who started off as a computer programmer and is now the CEO of one of the largest internet businesses of our generation.
Chris Gardner – a successful businessman and philanthropist. “The Pursuit if Happiness” is based on his struggle with homelessness and trying to raise a young son. It’s my favourite movie/book of all time. It gives me that little boost inside the back of my mind to push, and the confidence that anything can be done; with the will of determination and sacrifice. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do, you do whatever it takes to reach your goals in life. “You got a dream, you got to protect it”.
