Employee Spotlight – Reece Hewitt
Reece is our IT Analyst here at Norcros Adhesives. He has been with the company for 1 year. Welcome to his employee spotlight.
Can you tell us about your role at Norcros Adhesives and how you came to work with us?
I monitor the systems and equipment we currently have as well as implementing new I.T systems that aim to help improve efficiency.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I wouldn’t say I have a typical working day. It can vary from configuring new sections of our ERP system to fixing people’s I.T. support issues – every day is different!
How have you been able to learn and grow at Norcros Adhesives?
I would say the skill I’ve learned the most whilst working at Norcros Adhesives is independence. Whilst some of the most important work I do can have deadlines I also have to balance everything else surrounding the job. Being the only I.T in Norcros Adhesives means I need to prioritize all I.T work myself.
What has been your proudest moment at Norcros Adhesives?
I would say suggesting and implementing blackbird. We are using it to identify the most common stops, improve efficiency and trying to improve the overall business. It was also my first project that I took on myself.
What tips would you give to someone looking to start their career within IT and Data Analytics?
Brush up on SQL knowledge. It makes the job 10x easier when you know what you’re looking at in SQL! Also asking notes on everything you do is incredibly useful as the same issue usually comes up more than once.
What advice would you give to your younger self about your career?
Pay more attention and be confident in your abilities.
What’s your favourite activity to do in your spare time?
Either playing games or more recently running.
What’s the last song you listened to?
