I work on child safety policy within Ofcom's video sharing platform regime. This involves engaging with some of the biggest social media companies to gather information that forms the basis of our policy positions. I also work within the online safety regime on the Transparency team.
The skills I use most in my job...
The most interesting thing I've worked on in my career so far...
Child safety within Ofcom's VSP regime (Unfortunately I can't go into much detail as a lot of the information is confidential)
What inspired me into digital and tech...
I believe in making the internet a safer space to be for all but particularly, women and children.
My educational background is...
I went to a comprehensive school in North Yorkshire. I had to work throughout my A levels and got a place at Goldsmiths University of London where I studied History and Journalism and graduated with a 2:1. I feel as though If I didn't have to work 2 jobs during my time at University, I could have achieved more.
What advice I'd give to girls thinking about a career in digital and tech...
Go for it! You do not need a background as a software engineer or a data scientist to work in tech. Tech can also be a really fun and exciting space due to how quickly things develop.
