About Us

Jason

Jason left high school aged 16 to start an apprenticeship as a .Net developer for a car salvage and dismantling software company, developing a piece of POS software during his time there.

After this apprenticeship he went on to work in a customer facing retail role before joining us at Grant McGregor as an apprentice in June 2017. After completing his SCQF Level 8 apprenticeship, Jason became a full-time Service Desk Analyst at Grant McGregor in June 2018. Jason’s experience being an apprentice means he brings a willingness to learn, hardworking ethic, as well as a polite and approachable manner – making him a great fit for the team at GM!

Fantastical Fact File

Give an example of something positive you’ve learned from working in IT?
My time working in IT I feel has improved my ability to work with others greatly, as I’m speaking to people in different areas of expertise, and with different levels of experience. My time working as a software developer taught me how to work on a large-scale project over a long period of time.

What’s your favourite film in the whole world and why?
I’d probably have to say Monty Python and the Holy Grail would be one of my favourite films. The Pythons style of comedy never fails to put me in stitches.

What makes you laugh heartily every time and why?
Eddie Izzard is one of my favourite comedians by a long shot, I have good memories of not being able to breathe for laughing at one of his shows. As previously mentioned, Monty Python is another group that never fails to entertain.

If you had a whole week out to do something you really wanted and were given £1000 gratis to do it, what would you do and why?
I’d probably just spend a week relaxing in a cabin somewhere and take some music gear.

Tell us something that you personally aim to achieve inside the next 5 years.
Within the next 5 years I’d like to have finally moved into my own home, and have the money to fulfil my hobbies in music.

Give us one reason that you wanted to work with GM…
I wanted to work with Grant McGregor as it gave me the opportunity to further my education at the time, and now offers me the chance to turn that into a career with a well-established and prestigious company in a field I enjoy working in.
