Hi All,

A lot of you in the NI HE and FE sectors will already know me by my work with the Jisc RSCni.  However, for those of you who do not know me, I would like to take this opportunity to formally introduce myself, Noel McDaid, as the new Janet Customer Engagement and Service Manager for Northern Ireland.

My background is in the education sector within Northern Ireland, where I have a total of 17 years experience.  4 years experience as a Systems and Network Engineer at North West Regional College and, for the last 13 years, as Technical Adviser for Jisc RSCni.

I have just completed a number of weeks at Janet HQ in Harwell Oxfordshire for the company induction, and will soon make contact with you all to begin organising engagement meetings.

My immediate priorities in the region will be to:

  • Establish myself as the local Janet representative;
  • Encourage your participation on the Janet community portal;
  • Establish the Northern Ireland Janet User Group (NIJUG);
  • Build a programme of Janet information and events for the next 6-12 months.

I look forward to meeting with you all soon, to learn more about your organisations and to explore how you can best utilise the Janet network and services.  If you have any questions before then, feel free to get in touch with me using the following contact details:

Noel McDaid
