Since graduating from Durham with a degree in biochemistry I’ve worked in a number of sectors, namely hospitality, marketing, retail and a brief spell in entrepreneurship until finally joining consulting with Capgemini Invent. Here I’ve worked across clients in healthcare, utilities and government in roles such as change management, training, business analysis, portfolio management and architecture.
What attracted you to Digital Architecture?
Digital Architects work with comprehensive organisational images that enable holistic problem solving across people, processes, data and technology. They are important because in an increasingly digital economy where digital skills and tools are becoming more fundamental to way people work they will be best set to deliver real operational or strategic change. Today when a company is set up, or needs to adapt itself, it has to do so with an agile, scalable and future-proof technological blueprint, and Digital Architects will be the principle agents to deliver it.
What is the most interesting part of your work/project?
I am currently working in an architectural capacity for a large government programme. There are daily challenges as social, political and financial decisions are made by senior policy-makers that frequently impact the scope of our project. Managing these challenges and ensuring we work in an agile way with a resilient architecture is an exciting process.
Why did you join the Digital Architecture team at Capgemini Invent?
Capgemini Invent has ambitions to become a more technical organisation and Digital Architecture is well placed to deliver that ambition. Since I personally feel more technically orientated I’ve decided that I would like to Join Digital Architecture upon graduation from the Invent Graduate Scheme. By joining Digital Architecture I also hope that this will help me pursue relevant opportunities and further my career in the field.
