How did you get started working with Oracle ERP? 

Through my college course in LIT (Limerick institute of technology) which was the Business Computing Course, my favourite subjects involved learning about the different kind of ERP processes and how important they are to companies helping them to run effectively smoothly and efficiently. When I heard about the job opportunity in Redfaire from a friend, I applied as quickly as I could, and was delighted to be selected, I then started working with Oracle ERP from there.


What does your typical day look like? 

My typical day varies a lot as I work shift work, my team is the Operations team which provides 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year support.

No one day is ever the same. My day, evening or night starts with a handover from the previous shift, a plan for the current shift, and a nice warm cup of tea to settle down, and to get stuck into my work, going through emails first and then onto various other tasks. The only thing that remains constant is a drive to ensure our customers are happy.


What is your role? 

 I am an Associate Operations consultant. My role consists of many tasks including system monitoring, object promotions and package deployments, E1 Security, assisting with windows security updates, and job scheduling to name just a few things. This means we get to provide support for many clients.


What is your favourite thing about your job?

My favourite thing is, the fact that I work with a wide range of teams, and customers, not just my own team. Subject wise my favourite thing to work on would be E1 security, I like the challenge associated with it. It is also extremely important that I have opportunities for promotion and Redfaire offers bright opportunities to move up through internal positions.


Any advice for graduates, particularly women who may be considering a career in Tech?

My advice would be to go for it, even if you have the smallest interest, it can grow into a huge interest as technology is a part of our everyday lives. I am very happy where I am now. In this industry it is a common trend in many technical teams for it to be unbalanced in a male to female ratio, this is due in partly to some women not feeling like they belong in this sector so I am here to tell them that’s not true.


What am I most proud of?

I am most proud of being a part of a safe friendly environment where the people within it help to pick people up instead of tearing them down. That environment is called Redfaire, Limerick.


Tell us More?

I am living in Limerick city in our little stone cottage with my boyfriend and our two Yorkshire Terrier’s Pip and Pablo, I love baking, and have recently in the last year really gotten into gardening!
