About Us - Company Information

Paula Anken

Office Manager

Previously an Executive Assistant to a main Board Director in for a major pharmaceutical organisation for 16 years, I was delighted when Framework hired me as their part-time Office Manager in 2018. It quickly grew from part time to full time as Tom and Ian trusted me with more of the business. 

I am passionate about the relaxed atmosphere at Framework, combined with the team’s desire to provide excellent training and first-class customer service. I love my work and my colleagues feel like an extension of my family.

My ex-racehorses, Rose and Lily, and two young Springer Spaniels, Charlie and Henry keep me busy out of office hours and ensure that I stay relatively fit!

About Us - Company Information

Tom Walker

Technical Director

I started off my IT career back in ’97 working in (and later running) customer support for a popular multimedia publishing company. It was simultaneously very rewarding and highly draining, but I look back on my time on the helpdesk with great fondness.

The move into technical training came naturally – although it was difficult at first to shake off the pavlovian reaction to incoming phonecalls. From here my voyage into geekhood was unavoidably hastened.

Outside the office, I divide my time between my family (outnumbered 4:1 in the battle of the sexes), drumming along to old jazz / funk records, writing electronic music, reading sci-fi, and feeding my video game addiction. I can order a beer, express gratitude, and apologise profusely in at least 10 different languages.

Ian Watson

Managing Director

After graduating from the Royal Northern College of Music and subsequently working as a freelance classical double bass player, I spent 20 years working in software services with the last 10 years in the software development training sector.

A passion for all things computer-related was sparked by receiving a ZX81 for my 9th birthday which was followed by a chain of much-loved home computers, most of which I still have.

Pleasant distractions from work include my young family, my guitars, way too many books, an obsession with cooking, fixing old cars, and a life-long love of sailing (both armchair and the real thing).
