About Us

Lee

Lee started working in 2001 at the National Archives of Scotland as a Repository Assistant, this involved him producing records for legal firms and members of the public. He then moved internally to the Scottish Government to work at the Agricultural Census branch in 2005. After four years in that position, Lee moved to his first IT role at the National Records of Scotland as part of the Infrastructure team. This was a wide varied role that included 1st and 2nd line support, covering various buildings and over 300 PCs. He was also the lead technician on the Windows 7 upgrade project which was a huge achievement for him in this role.

Lee’s calming and patient character, along with a very helpful attitude made him an ideal candidate in his role as ServiceDesk Support Analyst in the the Grant McGregor team.

Fantastical Fact File

Give an example of something positive you’ve learned from working in IT…
In my 7 years working in IT I feel that my problem solving skills have improved greatly. There are so many different issues that pop up on a daily basis that can be solved differently and I love being able to go away and figure out a solution and keep the customer happy.

What’s your favourite film in the whole world and why?
Jurassic Park – It’s a film I can watch again and again. I loved Jurassic World as well but the original is still special because of the story and special effects of the time. I recommend reading the book which differs from the film quite a lot.

What makes you laugh heartily every time and why?
An episode of Still Game always makes me laugh. Comedians like Kevin Bridges, Frankie Boyle and Jimmy Carr as always great to watch as well.

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 would put the money towards a holiday for my family as my kids have not been abroad yet.

Tell us something that you personally aim to achieve inside the next 5 years.
I currently can’t drive so that’s something I’d like to change within the next couple of years.

Give us one reason that you wanted to work with GM…
The whole office makes you feel welcome as soon as you step in the door. There’s a family feel about the place, starting from the Directors to the Service Desk.
