Sarah McCarthy

I have worked for Mitie for 11 years and the last 7 of those years has been working in the analytics department.

Prior to this, I studied art & photography, which gives me a unique perspective when bringing data to life through narration and visualisations. I combined my business understanding and technical skills with my passion for people to create a vision for our customers and my team.

My technical leadership begins with what many would see as a non-technical quality — empathy. I believe that technical leadership is rooted in the desire to develop a deep understanding of a customer’s business problem. That understanding then needs to translate into a vision for a technical solution. And is underpinned by genuinely caring about solving the problem.
