Hi Holly. So, tell us, what has been your career leading up to SmartCo?

I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2019 where I studied Psychology. Prior to this, I always had my own income from the age of 15. Whether that meant working for my local football club, West Ham, or other sales/commission driven environments e.g. Sports Direct selling bags for life or Linzi Shoes, trying to convince women that ‘this was the shoe for them’. I then embarked on my first professional Job at TEKsystems, specialising in infrastructure. Post Covid, my role and responsibilities changed immensely, which gave me the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally by becoming responsible for other individuals success. Since then, I felt I needed a new challenge. Hence, I joined SmartCo, a new exciting chapter with likeminded people who I can learn and grow from.

What is your new role and key responsibilities at SmartCo?

A Project Resource Manager within the private sector, identifying and attracting top talent. Being a fresh set of eyes that can help in driving new processes and bringing innovative ideas to help create a strong network of associates.

What attracted you to SmartCo?

The mature environment, the close-knit culture aspect, and the opportunity to be a part of something where I could leave my mark and make a change. I also liked the idea of the flexibility around roles. There isn’t a rigid structure which makes it more appealing.

What’s unique about SmartCo and what excites you most?

The culture here is unique and was one of my main reasons for wanting to join. I love the fact that I’ve only been here 3 weeks but I feel completely part of the team already. Everyone I’ve met thus far has been so friendly and easy to talk to. I’m excited to learn more about our clients and be apart of the many initiatives that we’ve been working towards in the background.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I go to the gym a lot in my spare time and anywhere that gives me access to good food, cocktails and some afrobeats 🙂
