Don’t just take our word for it
Hear from some members of the team and what they say it’s like to be a part of Bespoke IT Solutions.
This work has helped shape the monthly reporting documents that exist between ourselves and our customers regarding service and delivery, and which underpin the integrity of the working relationship.
As well a project work, I am responsible for customer software compliance; ensuring licences are relevant and that there is accurate record keeping. I am also the company’s Technical Librarian.
I also led Bespoke IT Solutions through their successful application for Investors in People and we achieved the Standard Accreditation in December 2019. This certificate will show our clients the friendly, relaxed and non-hierarchical culture at BITS which is why we can offer such a flexible and reliable service.
Finally, I am working on gaining ISO27001 for BITS. This is a valued certificate for IT contracts as it deals with security of all types of data held by firms (financial, personal, client, contractor and asset) it is understood that anyone who attains this can manage, store and process data to a high standard. We have our first assessment on Friday 18th September 2020, this will be followed up on 5th, 6th and 9th November 2020 with the decision being provided at the end of the day on Monday 9th November.
Project Delivery Resource
I find the working environment and culture here really refreshing. If I come up against a problem that I don’t know the answer to, the attitude from my manager is OK, let’s try and fix this together. Once fixed then let’s share that know-how across the company, so that someone else will know what to do if the same issue arises elsewhere. That for me is an example of a collaborative and friendly company. Tally, the owner believes strongly that IT can be taught (and she is unbelievably knowledgeable) but important to being successful is bringing people in with the right mentality. That means a willingness to learn and an appreciation of the link between teamwork and client service.
I’m excited about the future for this company. I feel like we are in a lift on the ground floor and we’re going up!
Application Support Developer
Working for the company as a whole has been such a great experience because I have learnt so much, this is all due to the way that the company is structured. Everyone in the company no matter what team you are in is always helping each other to the best of their abilities. Whenever you need help you can go to management and ask for help which is something greatly appreciated.
Problem, Change and Major Incident Manager
I didn’t know about BITS before finding the vacancy via LinkedIn. When I attended the first interview something clicked the moment I arrived. Steve (Newton) and Jade (Macfarlane) put me at ease immediately. Jade and I are from the same part of Scotland so that was a fab early ice-breaker. I got a really ‘good vibe’ from them both. The job they wanted someone to do, was the job I wanted and am very passionate about. Another advantage is the office is a lot closer to home than where I used to work.
A lot is written about the lack of women in senior positions in IT, especially on the “techie” side. So when I met Tally, who is the Owner and Enterprise Architect, I knew that this was a company that I would enjoy working with. It was brilliant to spend time with her and hear about her story and plans for growing the company which I knew I would be a valued asset for.
Working at BITS feels like working with your extended family. The team have each other’s backs, people never give-up and everyone understands their role clearly. This culture is derived from the Cadet Forces background that many in BITS have as well myself, as I am ex-Royal Navy/WRNS.
Since joining, I have taken on line management responsibility for two members of staff, plus an Apprentice. Due to the Covid restrictions, we have all adapted to be more flexible in our approach to helping our clients. For example, we have daily check-ins with our largest client in order to effectively communicate project and BAU activities.
Beyond providing the best possible service to our customers and being a successful business, we are also committed to:
Southwark Young Pilgrims – a scheme for 14-16 year olds, providing direct customer-facing opportunities to young people, previously disengaged, and unlikely to leave school with qualifications. Providing life skills, work experience and a taste of real life.
Army Cadets. Several members of staff are instructors helping young people and promoting life skills, team work and promoting a culture of achievement.
Charity donation to Crisis at Christmas to provide a Christmas meal to homeless people, equal to the number of staff we have.
