About Me

Mandy Bungey BSc MICB PM.Dip

Mandy Bungey BSc MICB PM.Dip

I was lucky enough to be introduced to computers at an early age. I can remember playing games on a Commodore 64, Atari ST and various others before “graduating” to an IBM PC Compatible machine. This all sounds so far away now from todays technology when most of us carry more computing power in the smartphone in our pockets than the astronauts had to land on the moon!

But it did mean that I grew up with computers. I learnt how they were put together and the basics of coding (that’s not really my thing though). Computing at school was limited to the Computer Club – a rather grand term for a small group of us huddled around a BBC BASIC computer! College and University followed although I went down the Mathematics route which only touched ever so briefly on programming.

Then after graduating I was lucky enough to land a full-time position on the telephone support team for the launch of Windows 95. With six months of intense training about Windows, and PC computer troubleshooting in general, I could not have asked for a better grounding for what would turn out to be my first career.

With 18 months support under my belt it was time to move on and I joined the research team at The Centre for Education and Employment Research. My computing skills were put to good use and when the team relocated to the University of Liverpool, I took the plunge and set up my own consultancy business enabling me to work for the Centre remotely, alongside other clients.

Twenty plus years on and the computing world has galloped forwards at a relentless pace with smartphones and tablets dominating our daily lives. One thing that hasn’t changed though is my passion for helping people with their technology!

Centre for Education and Employment Research

Mandy Bungey has provided excellent IT support for the Centre for Education and Employment Research for over twenty years. Originally a member of the team she branched out to establish her own business.

She currently administers and is responsible for the design of the Centre’s website, provides advice for the Centre’s staff when they encounter technical difficulties, and is contracted for specific projects that involve such things as skilled data handling, preparation of illustrations, or the digitisation of reports.

In all the years she has been associated with the Centre she has provided an exceptionally high standard of service – knowledgeable, utterly reliable and always delivering to time and quality. I can recommend her with complete confidence.

Wild Horses in shadow

Fun Fact

I am a lover of horseracing – in particular National Hunt racing (thats hurdling and steeplechasing for non-afficianados). I love the atmosphere and thrills of the Cheltenham and Aintree Spring Festivals. I’ve even been lucky enough to have owned several ‘legs’ of various horses in the past, and hope to be back involved again in the future.

What I Enjoy Watching

(in no particular order)

Fun Fact

So you have already discovered that I am a bit of a geek with my love of computers, so it probably comes as no surprise that ever since my University days, I’ve been a confirmed Trekker. Not so much a fan of the original series but a lifelong devotee of Star Trek: The Next Generation. As Captain Picard might say, “Make it so”.
