I immediately got a sense that there would be a strong team aspect and that it would be somewhere to grow and develop. Whilst looking at the HB Tech website what really stood out to me was how passionate and people-focused the company was and how proud they were about their client service provision’

So how did he feel when he first started? ‘Overwhelmed, but extremely welcomed and wanted.  HB Tech is very inclusive, and I immediately felt like a person who mattered. Learning the systems was a bit daunting but Trevor was very helpful. It took a while to get used to the clients and understand who was who, but the hands-on practical approach worked and was the best way to learn’.

A year in, how does he feel now about working for HB Tech? Josh said; ‘I feel that there is a massive difference between then and now with both my knowledge and confidence.  I am now very confident to deal with all the various helpdesk calls. I really enjoy chatting with the clients whilst sorting out problems, which is a skill in itself. Everyone in the HB Tech team is so supportive. Everything has exceeded my expectations and I am so glad I made the decision to join’.

Asked what he is looking forward to going forward?
