Ellie Yell

Ellie has a background in Psychology and HR; gaining a Masters with Distinction in Occupational Psychology.

She spent her early career working within a global HR consultancy building up deep expertise in talent management, assessment, development, organisation design, reward and recruitment. Her clients included Vodafone, RBS and Barclays before she left to set up her own consultancy. Ellie is a role-model for the full-time working mother.

Whilst juggling a blended family of five children, she established DEMO:U; a business which provided immersive assessment and interview experiences for socially disadvantaged and minority individuals. As a result of the significant positive impact that these experiences had on young adults’ anxiety and confidence, Ellie wanted to find a way of creating a scalable solution to achieve two goals i) providing equal access to knowledge, role models and opportunities and ii) better preparing a generation for work. Fledglink is that solution. Ellie believes that being a psychologist instead of having a technical background is a strong advantage for Fledglink; which at its core is essentially all about people.
