Michael's story

James' Story

Peter Murphy Elliott

Senior Systems Engineer

I started working at Oasis officially in 2011, straight after completing my degree in Computer Systems Technology.

I joined as an apprentice and within 3 months was promoted to a 1st Line Technician. Working for Oasis meant that I was also able to become involved in projects like Southside FM, youth work and the charity coffee shop.

I enjoy the flexibility of Oasis; I have a healthy work-life balance whilst being able to trial and stress test new technologies.

The difference with working here I would say is that it's quite friendly and for me it’s the openness and willingness to use new technologies as and when they are released. I'm sure this is not the case in other organisations.

Liz Bickerstaffe

Senior IT Project Manager

I joined the team in September 2013 as IT Site Leader and began supporting the Projects Team in September 2014.

I took my Prince 2 training whilst at Oasis and successfully transitioned into the role of Project Manager within the year. I know I can rely on any of the team to provide advice and guidance at any time, and look forward to getting together every year at the National IT Staff Conference.

My role allows me to travel to all of our academies, meet the team on the ground and build relationships.

The best thing about working for Oasis IT is the fact that your colleagues, your line management and the wider Oasis team are extremely supportive, a pleasure to work with and I couldn’t wish for a better bunch to work with.
