What did you study (at school, college or university)?
How did you get into technology?
I started off by completing my degree in mechanical engineering. Since I've graduated however, I've only been in a graduate program for less than a year with Dulux Group before making my first career move into Technical Recruitment. From there, I went on to pursuing a career in fixing problems in people, not machines. For 5 years, I had led recruitment projects with Ford, General Motors, IBM before moving to Revolut and led them through hypergrowth bringing their final headcount to 300 in under 8 months. Now, I'm with 11FS to define their ultimate working culture via a series of employer branding efforts.

What advice would you give to girls looking to get into a tech related career?
You don’t need to be a technical expert or a genius coder to thrive in the technology industry. Tech underpins so many successful brands today, thanks to the forward thinking way of innovation which is what truly matters.
