    For those of you who already know me shall be aware I’ve worked for CIS for quite some years, originally joined the team known as AVR Unit in 1998 when Hereford & Worcester CC was abolished. Previously working for ITS based at The Finstall Centre.

    As you can imagine, I’ve seen many changes in the Service, I was selling VCR’s and tape recorders and enquiries on data installs were only just beginning…..

  • During the 21 years, (gosh-really!) I’ve had my two wonderful children, now both teenagers, worked with some delightful colleagues, taken redundancy from WCC, commenced with CIS Ltd in April 2013, and now onto our second office move as CIS Tech develops, what else can lay in store?

    I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoy my job, longevity speaks for itself in my case. Some days can be quite testing, others a delight, but I go home feeling I’ve provided a valuable service to both the team and customers alike.

    I am proud to be a member of the CIS Tech team, the service we offer and what we have achieved so far, I Look forward to the years ahead as technology and our service develops, and of course speaking to you all over time.
