I have over 23 years experience of application development and support on GCOS 7 and its predecessor, GCOS 64. Much of this has been as an Analyst Programmer but I have also worked as a System Designer, Project Leader, Team Leader and Technical Support Analyst. I am an expert in GCOS 7 Cobol, IDS II, TDS, JCL, GCL and IOF. I also have a good working knowledge of IQS and some experience of Pacbase. My employment history is available as is a copy of my CV in PDF format (in most web browsers you should be able to right-click on the link and choose "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" to download a copy).
