For International Women's Day, we're posting a series of blogs featuring some of the women in IT at Mirus, today we're featuring Christine Anley, Sales Ledger Co-ordinator.
Christine is the second to be featured in this series and she's part of the Mirus Accounts Team, based from the main Milton Keynes head office.
Christine spends her days working across the 3 sectors of the business (Managed IT, Managed Print and Telephony & Connectivity), raising invoices, dealing with queries and ensuring our Customers are provided with the Award-Winning service we're renowned for.
We caught up with Christine for our 'Women in IT 2020' series of blogs.
What’s your role at Mirus, and previous experience in the IT industry?
I am the Sales Ledger Coordinator. I have no previous experience within the IT industry although I am married to an IT Guru!
What made you choose/inspired you to take up a career in IT/with Mirus IT?
I was contacted by the in-house recruiter, Lee, through Linkedin and asked if I’d be interested in a position that was being set up.
What do you love most about working in IT/ at Mirus IT?
I love working at Mirus because they seem to care about their employees. Also, it is rather refreshing in an office this size that everyone seems so friendly.
Do you think more women should consider tech roles, and why?
I have no real thoughts on this as I am not a technical person.
What struggles, or opinions if any, have you encountered along the way?
Learning new technology (new computer systems etc).
Do you feel like your gender has affected your treatment or experience in the industry?
Not really – I am an accounts person and don’t really do technical.
What do you like to do outside of work, any hobbies?
I dabble in a bit of online gaming (Diablo 3 and the like), consoles – PS2, Wii, Xbox360 & Xbox One. I also love to cross-stitch, helps relieve stress (who wouldn’t when you can stab something hundreds of times without bloodshed or convictions for murder).
Who's your idol?
Not sure I really have one.
Thanks for your time Christine, it's great to have you on the #MTeam!
