Business growth boosted for Optimising IT with a round of new recruits


Rapidly growing Cheltenham based IT consultancy and services provider, Optimising IT has recruited three new members to the company’s expert team.

The focus of Matthew Cartwright and Malcolm Tomlin on the Service Desk is to ensure that clients receive the very best attention to promptly sort out IT queries and trouble shoot problems. Simon Hawkes has joined the team specialising in projects and 3rd line support. All three come from in-house roles so they have first-hand appreciation of what it’s like to be a customer, and they are using that experience to deliver an exceptional IT service.

Malcolm, who previously worked for a publishing company, is the Service Desk Administrator. With a keen eye for detail, Malcolm leads on a variety of administrative tasks including setting up new users, managing email groups and monitoring system alerts.

Matthew is an IT Support Engineer. He joins the team manning the phones on the Service Desk, dealing with issues as diverse as forgotten passwords and network outages. He is bringing his experience of working in IT for a global manufacturer to Optimising IT.

Previously working for a conservation charity, Simon is also an IT support Engineer. He joins the projects team, focusing on the delivery of projects for clients such as WiFi installation, Office 365 implementations, network configuration and 3rd line support.

“We’re really pleased to welcome Malcolm, Matthew and Simon on board,” explains Charlie Haward, Optimising IT’s Service Desk Manager. “The business has grown on the back of our exceptional service and we’ve worked hard to find the right people to help take us even further forward.”

Optimising IT is a fast-growing IT consultancy and services provider dedicated to providing excellent customer service. Focusing on three core areas – consultancy, bespoke solutions and managed services – the team is committed to delivering IT support, which actively contributes to a client’s business success. Based in Cheltenham, Optimising IT was founded three years ago by Gary Smith to change the way IT services are provided. Rather than relying on reactive maintenance contracts, his vision is to deliver outstanding value each and every month based on an agreed service level. The focus is to improve IT performance through expert advice and future-proofed solutions making the most of the latest technology.
