Job Role at EMG

I am the Business Systems and IT Manager at EMG Solicitors and I joined the firm during lockdown 2 in November 2020. I am responsible for over seeing the Practice Management Software, the IT Infrastructure, Security and Support. My primary focus is to ensure that all staff have the resources they need to fulfil their role and help them work as efficiently as possible through developing improved work flows and technology.

Experience

I graduated from university in 2002 and then joined a large established Scottish law firm, after 4 years I decided to take a gap year. I returned to work in the education sector for another 4 years before accepting a newly created position of IT Manager at Northumberland based pharmaceuticals company, I remained in this position for almost 9 years.

What do you like about working at EMG?

I started during lock down 2 and there were few people in the office, so most of my introductions where done online and everyone was really friendly and welcoming. There is a strong culture of providing the best possible service and staff are always willing to go the extra mile…or at least the extra 250 meters to Greggs every Friday.

Outside of EMG

I spend most of my spare time being a Dad and doing the never ending list of DIY jobs around the house.
