I worked with Ayodele in the DevOps/SRE team at Doctor Care Anywhere. He is methodical and thorough in his approach, has a great problem-solving ability and a natural curiosity that keeps him learning new technologies, whilst maintaining a great rapport with the team. I would rate Ayodele very highly as a DevOps Engineer, not only for his knowledge, skills and perseverance but also for his ability to remain calm and methodical under severe pressure.

-- Ashley Wickham

Ayo delivers tasks to the upmost excellence! Thank you for looking after our IT issues when I worked with you. You know your trade and a good person too.

-- John Kyagulanyi MBA FCCA

Ayo, you have been extremely proactive and with every technical query I have had, you have always managed to resolve it sometimes even better than external suppliers that we work with! You would definitely be a great asset for any company and it is a shame we are not working with you at Indivior!

-- Amrita Bowry

Ayo was responsible for providing IT support for the entire company. With my limited IT skills, Ayo was always there to sort out my IT issues promptly, reliably and with a smile. Thank you for your hands on approach and always willing to help even outside of working hours. You would be an asset to any IT department that you work for.

-- Karen Thomas MBA, ACMA, BA (Hon)

Ayo worked with us on interim support positions and was simply brilliant in his work. Besides his technical knowledge, he was one of the best in his Customer Service mindset. He is a self starter and self learner. He tries to help with passion and dedication. He has strong people and communication skills. A great team player with a lots of positive attitude. I wish him all the best!

-- Zubair Ali

During my time working with Ayo, I have always found him helpful, someone I can go to with any questions, and someone that is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure things are resolved and that I was happy with the outcome. Ayo is a pleasure to work with and always a valued member of the company.

Ayo is one of the best IT colleagues I have worked with. He has dealt with everything from providing me with a set up computer to solving problems with competence and confidence. I have also seen him go out of his way to help people in the office. I thoroughly enjoy working with Ayo and thoroughly recommend him.

-- chris bushe

By the present statement I confirm that I have been working with Ayo for the past year and a half almost at Indivior. Ayo is always friendly, helpful and particularly quick and effective in resolving any IT issue I have faced so far. He is able to explain complex issues in a very simple way and gives user friendly IT tips. He cares for his work and that shows in how he delivers. I also like his balanced behaviour which is a pleasant mixture of friendly-professional. He stands out for all the above.

-- Afroditi Diamantopoulou

I am pleased to recommend Ayodele as a brilliant IT Associate,Not only has he been a key player on the team, but he also was a good motivator. Ayo's skills and qualities would make him an invaluable addition to the information technology team of his new company, he can plan, create, and market IT content and also build a decent IT system, he has committed to quality, growth, and progress, and he inspires his team members to strive by engaging in continued training. Ayo is great at working independently and can produce high-level work with little supervision. I have no doubt that he will make an excellent addition to his new team.

I've worked with Ayo since I joined Indivior 18 months ago. Ayo has been a pleasure to work with. He is incredibly professional and personable. From on boarding me when I started to everyday IT issues Ayo is never too busy to help. I also manage a team of field based sales representatives who speak incredibly highly of Ayo. Being field based it is critical their IT systems are working at full capacity. If they ever have any issues Ayo strives to right them as quickly as possible and understands the urgent nature of their requests and goes above and beyond to help them.

-- Dave Payne

I have worked with Ayo at Indivior and have always appreciated his immediate attention to the issues and super fast resolutions. Ayo is very approachable and has very good grasp on the IT infrastructure which has been a blessing on more than one occasion. He is a great person to have in the office and would highly recommend him!
