Emily shares her thoughts about joining Netcompany as a new university graduate and her experiences of working as an Infrastructure Consultant.

Great first impression

From the first interview I could feel that Netcompany was an ambitious company that wanted to do well. My impression after the  first couple of months was even better. Everyone takes the time to help and is happy to give guidance and answer your questions, which really helps build your technical knowledge. 

Everyone pitches in

What really surprised me is how everyone pitches in, everyone is willing to go the extra mile. Coming out of university, it is easy to stay in one role but there are lots of opportunities to branch out at Netcompany and senior colleagues are happy to help you, compared to other companies, where you might not even get to speak to them. 

A continuous focus on professional and technical development

Netcompany has many development opportunities, employees are sent on courses in the UK and in Denmark, but you also learn on a day to day basis, getting stuck in allows you to learn straight away. 

The social plays a big role

The social element is important and plays a big role at Netcompany, I think it’s how the company has got to where it is so quickly, as it brings people together. For the first social in Leeds, people from different projects in the area attended and now they come and sit in the office, it is nice to be able to bring people together. You get to know different areas of the business that you wouldn’t if you sat in the same office. It gives contacts and avenues to get answers to questions.
