Name: Jamie Norman
Position: Systems Administrator
Where are you from?
I grew up in Donnybrook and moved into Bunbury in 2010.
What are your interests and hobbies?
I enjoy following basketball - both the NBL and NBA. My favourite teams are the Perth Wildcats and Houston Rockets. I am also very active in the NBA trading card scene here in Australia; it is a good way to interact with people from all walks of life, who share a common interest. I also enjoy spending time with my young family and travelling when I can.
What is your background in the IT industry?
I have had a keen interest in computers since childhood. After completing High School, I studied my Cert 3 & 4 in Information Technology at TAFE and then started a data comms installation traineeship. Half-way through the traineeship, I realised it wasn’t for me, so I re-enrolled at TAFE and completed my Diploma in IT. A few weeks after completing my diploma, I started working at TNE and have been there since!
What attracted you to TNE?
After completing my studies, I was looking to start my career in the IT industry. I received a call from Paul (TNE's Managing Director) informing me that TNE had a junior position opening and they would like me to interview for the job. At that time, I was interviewing for various other IT roles within other companies, but none of their company visions and values aligned with mine. For me, TNE was the obvious choice, as they not only shared my visions and values, but also offered an educational and career advancement program.
TNE is a fantastic company to work for, as they truly care about their staff and creating that work/life balance. Realising that working in IT is a high pressure role, TNE ensures that their staff get generous time off to rest, recuperate and spend time with their families. TNE understand the importance of 'relaxation time' and allowing their employees to catch their breath between high pressure assignments. They do this with the help of team-building activities or mini break periods over the course of the day.
I have been at TNE for 8 years and have never looked back!
There are plenty of other IT companies - why should a business use TNE?
TNE sets itself apart from other IT companies, as it's primary focus is to provide exceptional customer experience, whilst ensuring continual improvement across all areas of the business. TNE has a wealth of knowledge and experience in business IT and operates in a wide range of industries, spanning; accountancy, real estate, entertainment and much more.
TNE is an exciting company to work for and maintains one of the highest customer retention rates in the IT industry.
What does the future hold for yourself and/or TNE?
I see a bright future for myself and TNE. The company is growing at a steady and manageable pace and career advancement opportunities are available.
With management having extensive IT and Business development experience, I am always learning and I look forward to my future here at TNE. I am proud to be member of the TNE family.
