Meet Paul, Configuration Manager in the Technology team.  

Paul has worked at Camelot for eight years and loves to travel. We caught up with him to find out more about his Camelot career.

Describe what you do in a sentence or two.

One of my primary tasks is ensuring that the Configuration Management Database or CMDB is accurate. Amongst other things, the CMDB holds details of all assets that employees have been provided within the business, such as laptops and mobile phones. I am also responsible for Software Licence Compliance at Camelot and numerous other support functions to help my colleagues.

What does your normal day look like?

Each day is different, that’s what I most like about the role. There are BAU tasks and there are major projects, such the recent refresh of equipment for our Retail Sales Team that required immense organisation and planning.

What’s the best thing about working at Camelot?

Without doubt the people I work with! 

Tell us about your Camelot career highlight to date?

I was very proud to take Camelot to a high level of accreditation for Software Compliance in 2013. Away from the office, highlights include representing Camelot at the Olympic Football Final at Wembley back in 2012, and in 2017 volunteering with Lottery Winners to help build a new footpath at the National Memorial Arboretum. 

What do you do outside of work?

I live in Nottingham and have been married to my lovely wife Carole for 22 years; we are both season ticket holders with Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey team who we have supported through thick and thin for about 15 years. Our big passion though is travel and we have been to many parts of the world, including rounding Cape Horn and visiting the Falkland Islands, Argentina and Chile for my 50th birthday in 2017.

Interesting fact:

I survived an earthquake and a typhoon in the same holiday to Japan!
