WHY-NI? is a brand-new podcast from Enso Recruitment aimed at showcasing the best of the NI Tech Sector. Throughout this podcast series, we will be chatting to industry leaders about their businesses, challenges, products and achievements to uncover what really makes the Northern Ireland IT Sector tick!


We are delighted to be kicking off the very first podcast in our series with one of NI’s foremost industry leaders, Mark McCormack.


Mark has worked in the software sector for over 20 years rising to the position of CTO of Citi before becoming Employee No. 1 and Head of Technology at Aflac NI just over a year ago. We got the chance to find out all about him, his career path and the journey he is on with the brilliant team at Aflac NI.


In this episode, we catch up with Mark to learn about his current role and the growth plans Aflac NI has in store for 2021. We seek his advice for those starting out in their tech careers and we get Mark’s views on what it is that has made Northern Ireland so successful as a global tech hub.


Pound for pound Northern Ireland is maybe the best place to do technology in the world, we constantly punch above our weight, the reason that we do so is the people.


So join us on our journey in this podcast series as we seek to uncover the answer to that all-important question…Why NI?
