Jess has worked in People, Culture, and Talent across industries, companies, continents, and verticals since before she completed her undergraduate. She is passionate about people and culture, going above and beyond her day to day role as Head of Talent at McCann London, previously Head of People and Talent at UK Tech Track #1, Google Ventures Wonderbly, and moving into a community advocacy role across London and the UK. She’s presented at European and International events on how to positively influence culture, strategise your HR function, improve your sourcing strategy, leverage your ATS and HRIS, improve employee engagement in (and using) the UK tech sector, improve candidate experience, and generally be a kick-a$$ HR manager.
Jess spends her extra-curricular time working with others in the UK tech industry towards improving UK tech sector employee engagement; building a strong network of UK startups and SaaS platforms, and working with their founders to improve UK technology worker’s lives. Some of the companies she works with regularly are Sanctus.io, Sunlight.is, CharlieHR, and Lever.
