Meet our IT administrator, Hasabe Qamar

Away from his role as IT administrator for team Activ in Scotland, Hasabe Qamar has an extensive portfolio of properties to manage, as part of a family business venture. To relax, Hasabe enjoys spending time with his family and watching a good film.

IT has always been a great passion of mine. From a young age I gravitated towards a computer. It was therefore a natural move to study for a higher national diploma in IT and Networks, followed by a degree in IT and networking at what was Paisley University.

After one year I left university to join Currie Solutions as a network administrator.

I was part of a very small IT team which provided day-to-day IT support for the European branches, ensuring infrastructure was up-to-date.

I remained for 20 months. I gained valuable experience and I also learned how to think on my feet.

I took eight months off to care for my grandad who was very ill. I then took up a position on the IT help desk at global information and communications technology (ICT) services provider, Getronics.

I was asked to become part of the incident management team, helping to restore a service to normal as quickly as possible after a disruption and with minimum impact on the business.

As well as having to be reactive to major incidents, IT incident management also had a proactive side to it as we needed to ensure that clients were prepared and ready for unexpected hardware, software and security failings. Each day was never the same!

I then joined the IT and digital technical team at Atlas ICT Solutions, working in the South West and Central belt of Scotland. I worked in a field position providing IT support to senior engineers.

This was a dynamic role and I really liked being on-site rather than working from an office. It was also a new environment for me as I managed a host of different IT platforms for a variety of organisations.

After two and a half years I was approached to join Activ Technology. This was an opportunity that I had to take as the role involved a great deal of on-site activity.

Team Scotland, as we call ourselves, consists of myself, senior business development manager, Gregor Cuming, senior engineer/technical consultant, Michael Quinn, technical assistant, Russell Layden and business support advisor, Jade Nichol.

I work alongside a dedicated and enthusiastic bunch of colleagues and every day is different. In terms of future progression, I would like a senior engineer role at Activ Technology.
