I studied IT for Creative Industries at Lancaster University but when I was considering my career options, I was concerned that my existing technical knowledge would not be strong enough to do well in a technical graduate scheme. However, the Atos graduate scheme provides a great support network and training, which encouraged me to apply. In the time I’ve been at Atos I have learnt more than I expected, and find my day-to-day role in Cyber Security provides the perfect balance: enjoyable and interesting yet challenging. Everyone was very welcoming from my first day and the Atos buddy system made sure I had a friend long before my start date, which made moving to a new city a lot easier. Everyone took the time to explain how Atos works, taught new concepts and demonstrated how to use the tools, which meant I learnt a lot in a very short space of time.
