I began my career in startups after joining the New Entrepreneurs Foundation in their Class of 2017. Through the programme, I started working for logistics startup Doddle as a Product Manager, where I learned for the first time about building products that users really love.
During my time at Doddle, my brother and I were working on our own idea to help other young people like us get into the UK's startup ecosystem, which eventually culminated into Student2Startup!
After pitching Student2Startup at the graduating event of the New Entrepreuneurs Foundation, I was connected with an Educational Technology company called MyTutor, where I currently work as Tutor Recruitment Manager.
A Day In My Shoes
MyTutor is a company that is dedicated to providing1-to-1 tuition to pupils online via a market-leading digital learning platform.
My main focus is helping to grow our tutor community, predominately by going out and finding people who would be great tutors and talking to them about what we do. Our tutors are mostly ambitious students currently enrolled at the UK's top universities, which means a lot of my job is about getting out the office and placing myself on campuses across the UK!
While I wouldn't be able to describe any one day as the same as the previous, one thing that stays consistent is working with a great team who are as eager as I am to grow and nurture our community of tutors.
What I Love Most
My job is amazing because it enables me to always be learning things that are valuable to me and to the team I work with. I am constantly pushed to make an impact not only in the areas within my 'job description', but also in any other part of the business where I believe I can make a positive and tangible difference.
The people I work with are just as driven as I am to help bring education into the 21st century - and that makes every day a challenge worth trying to solve.
Plus, the social environment is great as well. We have regular team drinks, along with hosting other startups in our office every other Friday to help us meet others in the industry.

When you find the right startup to work for, every day will become a challenge that is worth overcoming
As a young person, startups will ask you to learn and gain important skills quickly, but it's up to you to do the hard work at the end of the day
