Jane Scaife UX

At our Careers fair we are about engagement with diverse and brilliant people. We spend our time in women’s tech hub speaking to members who are simply trying to find a way into the tech industry. It seems like a done deal with so many companies telling us that they don’t get any women or minorities applying and our members saying they would love to get in. This is what we are all about and we love it when we acheive our aims to bridge this gap as its normally such an obvious fit (to us at least). Jane is a great example – it wasn’t quick but having the conversations with our forward thinking company members and continuously supporting our members can acheive great results.

Read the blog here about how Jane managed to change career and how she’s loving it!
