Clifford Poole, Support Engineer
1: What is your position at Nouveau?
2: How long have you been working here?
Just over three years.
3: What you love about your job.
Working alongside other engineers. I previously spent many years working as either the only IT contact or the only IT person on a site. It is great to work with other engineers, sharing knowledge and experiences.
4: Have you got any cool hobbies?
I always keep myself busy with small engineering projects (fixing things usually). My speciality is electronics, which I studied before going into IT. As I get older, I have been spending more and more time in the garden, I am very proud of my compost heap.
5: What is your favourite thing to do outside of work?
Getting out and about on a sunny day on my bike. I’m not one of the lycra crowd, preferring the peace and quiet of lanes and pathways, maybe stopping for a pint and spot of lunch.
6: Name one thing you can’t live without..
My bike. It sits in the hallway when I am home, getting in the way of the front door, but that is fine because I never leave the house without it.
7: What’s a secret talent of yours?
I am a bass player. Started a band with friends in my school days, and since then played all sorts of different types of music in various bands. I still get together for a jam with friends occasionally but it has been a few years since I took it seriously.
