Mark Ray, ICT
Mark was introduced to the ICT Department through re-deployment, initially joining ICT's System Integration Team in April 2019 on a 12 month short term contract, to work on the Trust's structured noting development requirements.
In late 2020, a permanent position became available within the Blue Prism Robotic Process Automation Team (RPA) within ICT, which Mark successfully applied for, joining the team in November that year. Since then, he has become an invaluable member of the team, which considering that he possessed no previous programming experience, has been nothing short of staggering.
The progress Mark has made in a very short period of time is a credit to him and to all the hard work he has put in over the limited number of months he has been in the software development role. He should be extremely proud of his efforts and achievements so far and we feel this effort deserves to be acknowledged.
His personality shines through, and he is more that capable of holding technical conversations with both third party suppliers and Consultants, but is also capable of explaining to users technical issues in a non technical manner, to help them to understand processes and issues.
He has fitted into the team seamlessly and is held in high esteem by other team members for what he has achieved in a very short period of time.
