NomadIT was set up in 2001 when Rohan sought to fund a nomadic lifestyle, afloat on the English waterways. The company has grown since then to meet the broader needs of our clients.
NomadIT is made up of a group of freelancers, who work both together and independently. Ordinarily clients will deal with Rohan who will then liaise wi#th the other team members. However if a piece of work requires the skills of just one of the team, then clients can work with that freelancer directly.
Rohan has many years' experience working in conference organising, organisational administration, and presentation/print design in both voluntary sector & the commercial world. He spends most of his year on narrowboat Ganesh, drifting around rural ditches moaning about 3G reception blackspots; he prefers to spend the winter months somewhere warmer and with more daylight - India. Consequently he is very committed to remote working over the internet.
Skills: event organising, finances, web design, database systems design, DTP, presentation design, office training
Megan is a multi-skilled administrator, with more than 17 years' experience working in the educational and voluntary sectors. She once worked in an office with Rohan, and clearly now feels interaction with him by email and Skype is preferable! Living just beside the Thames, she must be relieved that Ganesh is yet to travel to London.
