ICT Technical Coordinator
Maritime and Coastguard Agency
I am responsible for procurement, requirement gathering, budget management and technical input within ICT. Main responsibilities are project management / support for the roll-out of the blackberry replacement windows phone devices, technical design and configuration work on the radio infrastructure managed switch project and the day to day management of the MCA's mobile phone estate which includes issuing, replacing, cancelling and contract management. I have been tasked to reduce the mobile phone estate for easier management and to reduce annual costs, this includes contract management and financial analysis to get the results required.
This role has given me a much better understanding of contract management, financial delegations and budget management from a different perspective as well as developing my people and conflict management skills.
