I work at Manhattan Partners as their software development recruitment consultant covering the North West and across the tech stacks. I'm also learning to code in my spare time and I'm a mental health ambassador too.
I studied at the University of Manchester, I completed a Masters in Chemistry, following that I started my first proper job in recruitment. Since 2018 I've fully immersed myself in the tech scene, I've attended as many meetups as I could and got to know my market inside out.
If I'm honest I kind of fell into tech recruitment, not knowing a thing about tech. But as each day has passed I love it more and more. I've learnt about all sorts from the front end to back end to cloud. I meet some really inspiring people every day
A career in tech isn't just coding! And coding is actually really awesome I've been learning for 3 months now, which I was surprised at how easily I picked it up. Theres a great lack of women in tech, especially in leadership positions. Explore your options because you could be the next tech leader that Manchester needs!
