DE&S IT Delivery Analyst CarlWhy did you choose to pursue a career in DE&S?

I was a policeman prior to DE&S so wanted to continue to do something that benefited my country; serving our armed forces was a great opportunity.

What does your role entail?

  • Continued rollout of Wi-Fi across Abbey Wood and outlying DE&S establishments to enable more flexible working.
  • I support our Accessibility Needs Software users across site to ensure that they receive a satisfactory level of support with IT and hardware.
  • I support all 12,000 users across site with any technical issues; my knowledge of the site infrastructure lets me advise and progress any requests from other teams to use our IT infrastructure.

What do you most enjoy about your job?

What I most like about my job is looking at what developments are coming and taking that knowledge and bringing it to our users. I also find working face to face and helping my colleagues very fulfilling, especially our users that have Accessibility Needs, using specific software/hardware etc. I am keen to show that there are plenty of opportunities for people with disabilities within the MOD.
