My CTS journey so far – Kirstie

Placement Student, Kirstie's time at CTS so far

Kirstie Dempster is a Computer Science student at Ulster University, Magee and is carrying out her placement year at CTS. Kirstie is working alongside our IT Systems manager, Joel and tells us about her CTS journey so far. Kirstie has been part of team CTS for over 4 months.

“Although, I haven’t been at CTS very long, I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it. Everyone has been very welcoming and made me feel part of the team. 

“I have gained the ability to produce concise yet thorough reports within IT and for other teams as needed and also improved my patience and ability to train the Operatives in both new and existing IT systems, Joel has been a massive help throughout all this training, teaching me at a good pace and allowing me to take extra time to understand certain things.

As a student and not having any previous experience this job has been challenging and hard work, but it is very enjoyable.

As every day is different and I am not stuck doing the same things every day, it has been an eye opener of what the I.T field is like and I am excited for the coming months to learn more.”
