Nick Jackson

Senior Support Engineer

I am a Senior Support Engineer in Birkett Long’s IT team. I provide an additional line of support to colleagues, as well as sharing the workload of projects and helping to develop the business infrastructure.

I enjoy helping people and building/improving things, so fortunately my job allows me to do both. I love how my job gives me a sense of accomplishment at the end of every day.

I chose my career path because both of my late parents worked in IT so I grew up around computers. I joined Birkett Long as I have spent the majority of my IT career working for financial services so I was interested in a change working for the legal industry, and I am excited to see the differences between the two sectors. I am also happy to have the opportunity to work for my former manager, Mark, again.

Outside of work, I volunteer at my local Cats Protection Shelter every Sunday morning helping to look after the cats. I also help raise funds for the charity at various events.

In my spare time, I enjoy motorsport and I am an avid motorcyclist, often taking part in several track days throughout the year. I enjoy crossfit and I train 5 times per week, always trying to improve my overall fitness and become the best athlete I can. I also enjoy detailing my car and motorbike.
