Jamie, Senior IT Analyst at Kibble, applied to join the team because of the training and progression opportunities. His first task upon joining 3 years ago was to set-up Wi-Fi for both staff and young people.
What did you do before Kibble?
Previously I worked for Manpower based at IBM in Greenock for 12 years doing IT work for JP Morgan Chase, Sony and BP.
How long have you worked at Kibble?
I have worked at Kibble for 3 years.
What made you want to work for Kibble?
Kibble stood out to me as the company offered great potential in developing my current knowledge and ability as training and courses were available.
The reason I was looking for a new job was because my previous role included shift work, rotating days and nights. As I had a family, I wanted a career that did not revolve around shift work.

As a senior IT Analyst I provide support across 8 sites with an excess of 600 users. I partake in the company’s on-call support rota to provide ‘out of hours’ support in the maintenance of critical systems. I have numerous responsibilities including, but not limited to, the upskilling of ICT System Analysts and Service Desk Analysts, project management and implementing new technologies.
What is the best thing about working in Kibble?
The fact that Kibble offers support to children who are at risk and have experienced trauma or something that was out with their control. It’s great to see these children progress and not only transform their own lives but help others.
Can you share a defining moment or story about your time at Kibble?
When I joined Kibble, my first major project was the configuration and roll out of Wi-Fi for both staff and the young people. It was a huge success and allowed the young people to have Gaming Consoles as part of their fun activities.
