Dianne Reddell
I started out in my career as systems tester as an intern with ITSA as part of my HND in business computing. Once I completed my degree I worked temporarily with EDS as a software tester. I had a small break from IT and then worked for Atos Origin as a graduate software tester where I helped train 10 other graduate testers. More recently I completed a 16 week software development course and I am now a junior software developer. I am also completing my second masters in Computing and IT by distance learning. In addition to this I am a participant in the Northern Voices programme to speak at technology events to encourage more women to join the technology community.
