Alessa Betts

I joined EY two years ago on the Advisory Consulting Programme, having studied Natural Sciences at University. Although I had some experience of coding using MatLab from my biological mathematics module, I would otherwise not have described myself as technical. It is at work that I realized my passion for technology.

The majority of my projects at EY have been technology based and it is on these projects that I have been the most inspired, and have also developed the most. Therefore I have now officially joined the Technology practice as a Senior Consultant, and am looking forward to getting involved in further technology-based projects.

I have always been passionate about inspiring more women into STEM subjects and as such I have been part of the Women in Technology network since I joined EY. Through this I have facilitated a number of events and am currently co-leading the comms team. I am keen to raise the profile of the network and ultimately to become a role model to other women both within the firm and externally.
