Carrie Jackson

Business Support Senior Technician

Carrie Jackson is our Business support senior technician. It’s her job to assist our Business improvement manager, both in ensuring our IT works correctly, and in developing improved systems. Basically, it’s Carrie’s job to make sure everything works perfectly without crashing/exploding too often and our customers have ‘hakuna matata’* when using our systems (it’s a Disney reference. It’ll make sense later).
