Job Title: Web Implementation and Support
Description: Migrating an existing system from a legacy content management system to a custom designed multilingual replacement. The original job requirement was to develop a simpler system for the site owner to manage and update the stock and web content, but this rapidly grew into a total overhaul of the entire web based business. This has allowed the company to expand into international markets by offering multiple languages, currencies and international postage. New features include promotional discount codes, bulk purchase discounts and mailing list management as well as a marking email system that includes email tracking and reporting. Unfortunately Neil closed down the business in January 2011 but the outline site still exists.
Summary: After leaving school I started an apprenticeship with British Telecom International which included 5 years of college/university and numerous related courses. After promotion to a Technical Officer in BTI I moved into hardware repair and was responsible for the diagnosis and repair of various ‘unusual’ products such as submarine repeaters, crystal ovens, 3v surface mounted chips and 80Kv cathode ray tubes – this meant attending many manufacturers course such as those run by Oki, Epson, HP, DEC, IBM & Compaq.
