Around 5 years ago I moved with my family to Houston Texas to help guide the development of a growing technical expertise in the USA for my previous company. The main focus of the role was on building key relationships across the various business units of the company, recruiting and developing new technical staff, while continuing to remain involved in a product development role and web operations management.
At eCom, I design specifications to multimedia designers, gaining insight into massively varying client content and communicating subjects in a visually informative way.
Following a career change a couple of years ago (from libraries and resources management in various local authorities), I was offered a post as a trainee instructional designer with eCom Scotland. My friends would ask: ‘What does an instructional designer do?’, and I would reply: ‘I’m not sure yet…. I’ll let you know once I’ve figured it out!’
