1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My day to day job is to run health checks on our SCCM infrastructure, this involves running scripts, checking backups, checking component issues, checking database replication etc. I then compile this data in an email and sent it out to my team. We then have a daily 10am meeting to discuss my findings and discuss any other issues.

I have learned tremendous amounts of new skills in such a short time since starting my apprenticeship. I have been put through numerous courses from QA and also put through an SCCM course specific to my role in the team. This has greatly increased my understanding in things such as, windows platform, cisco, ethical hacking, cyber security, troubleshooting, server 2012. I have also developed greater communication skills as my day to day job relies heavily on being able to do this effectively.
