Meet our Director – Amy Pittock

April 06, 2020

Ten years ago, Amy Pittock knew nothing about the IT/Software industry. Now she’s a fully-fledged Sage expert and a director of the company. This is how she got there.

In 2009 Amy had just come out of college and was working part-time as a waitress. This all seemed to be working fine. Her dad, however, perhaps wanting a quieter home life, had other ideas.

“I was quite happy continuing my part-time job as a waitress but the powers that be (my dad!) started pestering me to get a full-time job!”

So, she went about looking for apprenticeships and business administration seemed to be the way to go. Within the space of about four days, she’d had an interview, got the job and started the following day.

That job was with Reality Solutions. After a year as a Business admin apprentice, she moved onto the Sage team as a Sage support technician.

This was the start of a journey that would take her through the ranks of the company eventually becoming Sage Project Manager in 2015 and then in 2018, Company Director.

Despite working full time for Reality Solutions, opportunities for further education arose. Over the years she gained a number of qualifications including Accounting AAT levels 2 and 3 and she recently completed a degree in Business and Management and got a first! Well done Amy!

It’s been an eventful 10 years and Amy is very proud of the teams she’s been a part of and helped build. She says the success of the company is partly down to the wide range of skills and expertise they possess but “the customer service we provide to our clients is the heartbeat of the business.”

When she’s not at work Amy is a season pass holder for Hull FC. The KCOM stadium probably provides a slightly different atmosphere to the Reality Solutions office…
