Joseph Johnson, Corporate STAR 2018- IT Assistant, Peterborough
Joseph has worked in the Peterborough IT team since March 2018. He was nominated by several people in his office for his polite, positive attitude and for going above and beyond to help people. Specifically, Joseph has played a key part in the team by helping with the introduction of the new telephony system and supporting client facing staff during implementation. Here are some comments from Joseph’s colleagues:
“Joseph was always on hand to ensure any issues were resolved immediately, so clients were not negatively impacted by the new system.”
“Whether it’s the telephony systems or a printer that needs fixing, Joseph understands the urgent need to get things back on track so we can continue to deliver excellent service to clients. Nothing is ever too much trouble for him, no matter how busy he is.”
“I work in IT on Helpdesk Support in Peterborough, where I resolve IT issues that are submitted to Spiceworks.
“I was really surprised when I found out I’d won. The thing I enjoy most about my job is solving problems and helping people. My main challenge is printers - I hate them!

Joseph was born in Peterborough, has a cat called Leonardo DiCatprio and a girlfriend called Nikolett.
“Outside work I like camping in the summer - but avoid going outside during the winter. My guilty pleasure is probably metal music with my favourite band being Slipknot.
My favourite film is Hot Fuzz and the book Sapiens by Yuval Harari. My favourite travel destination is Mexico - mainly because of the tacos and I’m going to Greece next because it’s hot.
“Right now I’m watching the documentary ‘Roman Empire' and studying Hungarian using the Assimil learning programme.
“The one thing no-one knows about me, is that - even though I cycle to work everyday - I actually hate cycling!”
