Digital Product Manager at HSBC’s Head Office in London. 

Class of 2011

A*A*A in History, Politics and Psychology.

London School of Economics.

After Fir Vale, I received a scholarship to attend Sheffield High School sixth form. I left sixth form with A-Level grades A*A*A in History, Politics and Psychology. 

I then went on to do a degree in International Relations at the London School of Economics. Following this, I joined the HSBC graduate programme.

After completing the graduate scheme I started my current job as a Digital Product Manager at HSBC’s head office in London.

My job requires using a combination of design, IT and business skills in order to build and maintain websites for HSBC customers.  

My message to students is: 

Set an ambitious goal and do everything you can to meet it. Once you’ve met that goal, set another one. These small achievements are what amount to greater success. 

It’s ok to not know where you want to end up as long as you focus on nurturing your passions and strengths, whilst always seeking and being open to opportunities.
