Meet the team - Steve McCarthy


Meet Steve McCarthy, Team Leader at our Muswellbrook office.

Steve’s career in IT spans over 21 years and he recently celebrated his 10th anniversary with OAS.

With a focus in network management and server infrastructure, Steve is a valued mentor and colleague to the members of his team.

What does a “normal” day at OAS look like for you?

I review my Team’s jobs and ensure any priority jobs are allocated and progressing. I am also working on any outstanding and new tickets and liaise with our clients to find solutions to their issues and ensure their IT needs are met.

What was your first paying job and what have you learned from it?

I grew up on a farm in Elands on the Mid North Coast and started picking potatoes from as young as 5 years old. When I was 12, I started paid work in the farm’s timber mill. That’s when I knew I wanted a job indoors with air-conditioning and I started my career in IT as soon as I left school.

In 2006, my wife and I had our first baby and relocated to Muswellbrook.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

When I’m able to solve my client’s problems and get their systems back operating.

Do you have any mentors in your professional or personal life?

My co-workers are the greatest mentors - from management to junior staff - by listening to different ideas you never know when you might learn something new.

What does a day outside of work look like for you?

Spending time with my family and sleeping in when I can.

What three items would you take to a deserted island?

A boat, GPS and enough food to get back home.

Morning person or Night owl?
