Neil PaylorThere is a certain trend developing in our recent interviews with new starts at Be-IT.  When asked what they will be doing in ten years time they all want to be travelling the world, usually in a state of luxury.  At least Neil is seemingly not worried if he travels steerage, but to judge from his photo he's already been to some spectacular parts of the globe.

Name:  Neil Paylor

Job title: IT Consultant

What other jobs have you done apart from working in recruitment?
I once worked as a football coach full-time!  Still coaching within the ladies’ game.  I lifeguarded for a couple of years and used to be baggage handler for cruise ships back in the day! Hard graft!

What it your biggest disaster at work (anywhere)?
Nothing too major, however I once split my trousers on the way to a client meeting…. I had to keep my back to everyone the whole time. Note to self: get looser trousers….(or stop eating steak and beer – Ed – see below)

What/who makes you laugh out loud?
Splitting my trousers… And Still game.

When you were young, what was your favourite toy?
I used to love anything army/solider related. Running around with a new uniform or toy gun was what I can remember! Or a football…

Favourite band/singer/artist?  
Oasis / Courteeners / Arctic Monkeys 

As a new start, what was your initial impression of Be-IT after your first day in the office?
Great environment and ethos. Be-IT has a great way of doing things and I can see that already having only been here a short time. Everyone has been great making me feel settled and involved from the get go! 

Favourite (non work) website and why?
Sky Sports News – I’m a huge sports fan! From Football to Basketball I love knowing what’s going on in the sporting world!

Or Keepitonthedeck – website for football coaches that shares coaching drills and practices

Favourite food and drink?
Steak and Beer! 

Favourite techie gadget?
Map My Run – Nice app for tracking running routes

And finally, what do you (honestly) want to be doing in ten years’ time?
Travelling the world!
