I found the application process at G-Research to be very quick and easy. I found my emails replied to promptly and interviews very easy to arrange. I was convinced to accept the role because I am very interested in the industry and I knew I wanted to work in a high pressured, fast paced environment. Typically my role involves monitoring system alerts (drive space, memory and network connections) and being a first point of contact for most infrastructure issues. Alongside these responsibilities we also spend time automating some of the daily monitoring tasks that need completing. Most of the training I received at G-research was on site from other members of the team in seminars. I personally prefer this style of training to offsite training courses because the teaching material is easier to access after the seminar and you can direct your questions to the leader of the seminar after the training. The thing I enjoy most about my role is that ! the variety of issues that we receive. Some issues involving networking, others involving exchange and a large amount of issues that can involving scripting and automation. I have really enjoyed my time at G-Research as I feel like there has been so much potential to learn and develop my skills every day. The employees here have a vast knowledge of IT and being able to work in a friendly environment where everyone is willing to help has helped excel my technical knowledge greatly over my internship. I think the perks such as social events and weekly sporting events, have made my year even more enjoyable.
