James Bulley

Managing Director

Hobbies & interests
Motorsport, the British Touring Car Championship, F1, skiing, live music, reading and socialising with friends.

Favourite holiday destination & type
French Ski Resorts, city breaks or scenic retreats. A long weekend in Porto would be great for a city break, whereas the Lake District or the Scottish Highlands would make a great scenic retreat.

Ideal weekend
Not getting up too early and going out for a long walk. Then relaxing with friends on a Sunday afternoon with a pack of cards and a few beers.

Favourite type of music
90’s House, Rock

None at the moment but would love to have a dog.

How would you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as hard working, motivated, reliable. My first job was working for my father, building industrial pressure washers on a Saturday morning and during the school holidays. I’ve always had an interest in computers, but when I got my first computer (a ZX Spectrum 48k) around the age of 10, I really got into PCs. My first very own PC I bought when I was 14 with the money I had earned whilst working for my dad and I haven’t looked back since. It’s been over 25 years that I’ve worked in this industry and over this time, I’ve seen technology changing significantly. I would say the one constant for me has been the value of the data and ensuring it’s backed up.

James Allan

IT Technical Consultant

Hobbies & interests:
I play and coach Lions Inline Hockey Team at all age groups and enjoy watching Ice Hockey, USA or our local team. I also enjoy technology and am always looking at the latest gadgets to help improve my productivity at home and at work. I love going to gigs and festivals, but family time is also a big part of my life, as seeing my little boy and wife smiling is what brings me the most enjoyment in life.

Favourite holiday destination & type
I don’t really have a favourite holiday destination or type, I prefer going to festivals and gigs away from Manchester.

Ideal weekend
At a rink with playing games/watching my wife or little boy playing. Going away with my wife and having some time together watching a band with lots of JD. A family weekend together doing something outdoors which normally means getting wet and muddy with puddle jumping.

Favourite type of music
Indie is my most listened to music, but I don’t really have a type and like anything that has a good vibe to it. Favourite band has to be the Wombats.

Harry Fielding

Senior 1st Line Support Technician

Hobbies & interests
One of my main hobbies is tinkering with my personal PC seeing how I can improve it. However, another hobby that I am getting back into, and that few people know about, is training in mixed martial arts.

Favourite holiday destination & type
My favourite holiday destination would have to be Barcelona just due to the way the city looks and the amount of stuff you are able to do there.

Ideal weekend
My ideal weekend would consist of spending some quality time with my loved ones and having one or two slow-paced days where I can relax and unwind.

Favourite type of music
This is a difficult one for me, but I must put it between melodic rap and indie rock.

How would you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as a hard-working but relaxed individual. It isn’t common that I let things get on top of me, which is one of the reasons I believe I’ve found my place with an IT career. I strive to deliver the best customer service I can, ensuring all problems are resolved to the best standard possible. It is very important to me that any customer I speak with leaves the conversation confident that their IT problems are fixed and they can continue with their day without worry.

Alex Sugden

2nd Line Support Technician

Hobbies & interests
I am big into watching football and cricket. i also enjoy staying active by playing 5-a-side football, lifting weight, hiking, spin classes. I also tend to do a couple of fell runs each year.

away from sport I enjoy reading, craft ale (Pale Ales and Hazy), museums and seeing friends or family.

Favourite holiday destination & type
Skiing is the best holiday for me. It’s the perfect combination of activity, food, picturesque surroundings and the après-ski!

Ideal weekend
I like slow paced, relaxing weekends that are spent outdoors. An ideal one would involve a long hike and then the pub; followed by a relaxed Sunday watching sport.

Favourite type of music
Indie and Rock music

How would you describe yourself?
I’m quite laidback and easy-going for the most part but conscientious about my job. I love learning new things, understanding how they work together and fast-paced work environments, which is why this field suits me.

Favourite holiday destination & type
I have not gone abroad, but my favourite holiday would have to be going to Rhyl and having a nice week off at the beach.

Ideal weekend
This would be enjoying a lie in and having a chill day to unwind and then on the Sunday going out and about and exploring different places with my partner.

Favourite type of music

How would you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as a hard-working individual, but one who knows when its time to unwind. I always strive to give the customers the service they deserve and will make sure they are satisfied with what I deliver.

I remember starting my IT journey in primary school when I was taking computers and equipment apart and fixing them and its spiralled from there, but I don’t regret it one bit!
