Nizza Samuel | City Holdings UK

I work for City Holdings UK where my role as a Web System Lead has allowed me to lead the strategic direction of our web platforms and deliver innovative solutions for the company.

I have worked in technology for nearly 15 years spanning over three countries: New Zealand, England and now Scotland. I started out as a graduate software developer with a degree in Computer Science and Information Management, and my first manager was a great mentor who helped me to think outside the box from the beginning.

Over the years, I have worked with high-profile brands and organisations across number of sectors such as Marketing, Finance, Legal and Law. In that time, I have led global teams of software engineers, mentored interns and graduate developers and shown special interest in various women in tech initiatives internally and externally of the organisations I have worked for.

In 2012, I decided to expand my skillset and broaden my knowledge by enrolling into post-graduate diploma in Marketing. This really help further my career and opened unique opportunities as a technologist.
