Thanks for visiting my website, If you'd like to know more about me then hear goes. My name is Jamie Fergusson and I was born in January 1979 in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire . Since the age of five I lived in the village of Smallthorne located in the north of the city. I went to Smallthorne County Primary School until the age of 11. I then attended Haywood High School (Currently known as Haywood Engineering Collage) followed by two years at Newcastle-under-Lyme Collage where I studied General Engineering. At the age of 18 I started HND in Information Systems but changed course during my first year to Computer Science, I completed this in two years and then bridged onto the degree course. During my 3rd year at university I did a 10 month work placement at Hewlett Packard in Boeblingen (near Stuttgart) in Germany before returning to complete my final year and graduate in 2001 with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science.
After University I tried my hand as a freelance web designer while taking a job as a security officer at a local Audi dealership where I remained for 5 years. It was only meant to be a temporary job to make some money while I tried to get enough design work but the temporary job became full time and the web design fell by the wayside.
After 5 years of 13 hour night shifts I'd had enough. I began working for Openreach(BT) as a customer service engineer. The job entailed installing and repairing the copper network between exchange and end user properties. Lovely job in the summer, not so great come winter. A couple of years into the job I started suffering with a chronic, recurring back problem. The nature of the job didn't suit a back problem and after a couple of uncomfortable years I finally had to throw in the towel. I was trying to find a new role within Openreach when an opportunity arose to take a voluntary redundancy package so after 6 years with Openreach I left.
For 12 months I worked again as a self employed web design/developer. In March 2013 I began working at Jacksons Nurseries & Tea Rooms. My role was originally to cover a 12 month maternity period as both their web developer and a web sales adviser dealing with the running of the website and the general day-to-day processing of orders & customer service. After being at Jacksons for 6 months I was offered a full time position as Web Development Controller which is currently the role I occupy.
During this I meet my wife Emma in 2006, we moved into our current home in 2007 and got married in 2008. We had a son named Matthew in 2010.
