Nicola Logan - Business Officer
How did your career at Essex begin?
I have worked for ECC since 2004, I started with Adult Community Learning (ACL) as a Sessional Tutor. I taught ICT to many groups of people at various levels from Beginners to qualification, I also delivered a course specifically for people with visual impairments using accessibility software. I then came across to IT Services (or IS as it was then known) in 2014 where I was part of the team who did training for end users. In 2016, I joined the Service Management team in IT where I am now as a Business Officer.
What’s is like to work in IT?
There are lots of opportunities to put forward and develop ideas and there is a good team ethic. New technologies are always emerging in the external market so there is variety. Due to the broad range of roles that IT encompasses there are various roles both of a non-technical and technical nature, this means that you can broaden your horizons and learn from colleagues
What have been your highlights at ECC so far?
I enjoy the range of activities, changes and opportunities that have been available since I joined back in 2004. One of my key highlights has to be my involvement in the development of staff in terms of their IT Skills, and being able to make connections with people from different parts of the Council, working for ACL and now IT.
