What is your current Job Title or Role?
Head of Digital Delivery
What advice would you have for young women who are interested in a STEM career or job?
I would say get as much experience as you can, seek out someone already in that career and ask for advice. Contact companies and ask for work experience / intern opportunities.
How did you get to where you are today?
I didn't start out in anything related to what I do now, I ended up here through Project Management but I am so glad that I work in digital. Its interesting, current and most of all fun! I don't consider myself to be creative but working with creatives is great, a week doesn't go by where I am not talking to family and friends about the amazing things the company are producing, I feel very lucky!
What do you do on a daily basis in your work?
I manage a team and so some of my time is helping and supporting them, this can be through meetings with them individually or helping solve particular challenges. I work closely with the Head of Digital so I spend time working through ideas on how we structure ourselves to support growth and our clients. I attend a fair few meetings, which can vary in topic. No day is the same, and I have a lot of autonomy, my job is a great fit for me!
Who or what inspired you to get into STEM?
I fell into a STEM career, I don't think STEM was recognised when I was figuring out what I wanted to do.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
The variety and the challenge.
What do you like to do outside work?
I am a fairly new mum and thoroughly enjoying it!
