I love my job! As a Senior Technology Consultant at Mortimer Spinks I spend my days talking to some of the most talented, creative people in this beautiful city! I help businesses to scale inclusively; growing their software engineering teams and helping to optimise their recruitment processes, so they can attract and retain diverse talent.
A passionate advocate for inclusion in tech, my background is in Psychology and I’m fascinated by people, culture and organisational design. I love getting to grips with my customers’ business models, industries and cultures – having a deep understanding of people’s needs helps me to help exceptional people to do interesting, impactful work. I especially enjoy working with companies who balance profit and purpose – using tech for positive social impact.
In 2017 I co-founded the London Women in Tech and Digital community (#YouEqualTech). Each month we partner with a cool London based tech company, hosting events which create a safe space to learn from the experience of others – and where people can connect with others who can champion them in their career. Our community is now over 2500 people strong and was shortlisted as “Advocate of the Year” at the Women in IT Awards 2018.
When I get the chance, I love to write – and have co-designed and written a number of publications; including a piece on the fastest growing female-led UK businesses, launched at the London Stock Exchange in honour of International Women’s Day 2018 – in partnership with social enterprise Founders4Schools.
