Meet Mark Matthews, he is one of our contractors.
Describe your job in 25 words or less:
I am an IT Project Manager working on Telefonica’s datacentre rationalisation programme to consolidate IT services into strategic datacentres in Marlow & Slough.
What originally attracted you to O2?
It was a great opportunity to be involved with a large rationalisation & transformation programme for a telecommunications company of this size. I also felt that this opportunity would give me the exposure to work new technologies whilst also presenting future role opportunities to continue working in Telefonica.
What are 3 words that best describe O2?
Friendly Atmosphere, Relaxed, Driven
What has been your proudest moment at O2?
I’ve only been with Telefonica 2 months, but have successfully managed the move of some Telefonica’s key core infrastructure without causing a major outage. This has enabled me to gain confidence with key stakeholders which I am hoping will continue to last until I am next asked to provide a blog update 😊
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
Being able to share my experiences from other Telcos with Telefonica which is being warmly received to ensure successful delivery. In addition, having the pleasure of working with highly skilled technical teams which is great.
