IT Trousers - can only mean ... Thundercats!

Be-IT has come on a long way since we began, just over five years ago, in what seems now like a broom-cupboard (it was a bit bigger, but we certainly couldn't fit the current team in our first office now).  With our attrition rate being very low indeed, it looks like we might need yet another office soon (only kidding!).

Anyway, enough property news: it's now time to meet our newest resourcer.  Strangely, like most of the men who join us, his biggest disaster involves trousers.   

Stephen BradfordName: Stephen Bradford

Job title: Resourcer

What other jobs have you done apart from working in recruitment?
I have a varied sales and customer service background, having worked in the energy sector, medical supplies and an eventful experience with Phones4U.

What it your biggest disaster at work (anywhere)? 
Whilst paying too much attention to my screen, I tried to take a drink of my coffee but spilt it all down the front of myself – which, with having on light coloured jeans, made for an interesting walk at lunch time to the restaurant that my team had booked. (what is it about trousers? - all our new starts either seem to have spilled something on them or split them - Ed).

If you had to choose only one, which would it be – and why?

Facebook or WhatsApp?  
WhatsApp, helps me keep in contact with all my family. A lot of funny chats on a daily basis. I have been added to the team's one as well, so this should be good!
Edinburgh or Glasgow?
Glasgow, home city and the best nights out.
Holiday in Spain or Scotland?
Difficult one, I do love Scotland and visiting areas I have never been to, but, at the end of the day, sunshine wins so I would have to go for Spain.

When you were young, what was your favourite toy?  
Thundercats! Loved everything about them.

As a new boy, what was your first impression of Be-IT after your first day in the office?
Great office, really nice staff and was made to feel very welcome.

What makes you laugh?
Laurel and Hardy-esque situations i.e. if someone hurts themselves I honestly can’t help it. I am a nightmare for laughing in a serious situation as well.  

Who in the Be-IT team makes you laugh? (and why?)
No one person in particular, had a really good lunch with the team at the end of my first week and there were plenty of laughs had by all.

Favourite (non work) website and why?
NFL – absolutely in love with the sport #flyeaglesfly

What’s the one techie gadget APART from your phone that you couldn’t live without?
I’m not really massive on techie gadgets, I don’t dislike them, but I don’t hurry to buy them either. I know this defeats the question, but I do love ApplePay! Recently changed bank and that was a massive factor in who I chose to go with.
