If you’re looking for a graduate scheme in IT, then take a look and apply for the scheme that I’ve been on since September.
As part of the IT Architecture stream, I’ve been working with colleagues on designing new or making changes to existing IT systems. I’ve learnt so much within 3 months there already with the support of my line manager, mentor and sponsor, as well as, other members of my team and other members of the company.
As graduates we are also striving towards giving back, we are doing this through the company aligned charity Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
With the Costa sale, Whitbread brands such as Premier Inn and Beefeater, are going to be in an even stronger position for growth and this is where IT is key.
So take a look:

6 years ago I went to Brunel University for a Computing Taster Day, having not decided what I was going to do at uni yet or what uni to go to, but that day I decided both those things!
Crazy how time flies, I’ve finished my degree and am working in tech, if it wasn’t for events like that I don’t know where I’d be or what I would have done. That’s why putting effort back into promoting STEM has best interest for everybody!
My week summed up: Early mornings, awful drives home, free lunch and nice work campus walks 🤓
Now for the weekend, seeing my boyfriend and relaxing before doing it all again next week!
Many people ask what is it like to work in IT… what do I even do other than tell people to turn things off and on again? Well, as much as that is a common expression, that isn’t all it takes to work in IT!
So for the month of November, I am going to post up a photo and update each day, to share with you what it is like being a #WomaninTech and a graduate !

It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with 🤓 Thank you x
Great evening at the WCIT Journeyman Dinner, it’s great that a charitable and well established livery company and the men and women who make it so great, care so much about mentoring the younger members! Very appreciated and I look forward to giving back how I can too!

Was so amazing to graduate yesterday with all my family, friends and professors by my side who have supported me the whole way!
Off to my new jobs’ social tomorrow to meet the other graduates, such an amazing week marking the end and a beginning! 👩🏻🎓
From the moment you finish your final exam until the moment you receive your results is a nerve wracking time, however much calculating of grades you’ve done and pep talks you and others have given to yourself, it is always on your mind.
A week ago I woke up very early morning to the news that I had achieved First Class Honours in Business Computing with Professional Practice BSc and an A* in my dissertation… it still feels very surreal! I’ve loved school and it feels weird that for now education has come to an end.
When I found out my result I was in Cornwall on a family holiday, staying with my grandparents whilst my parents were in their caravan at another site. So I went straight into my grandparents and told them, they hopped straight out of bed and then we spontaneously got ready and drove over to my Mum and Dad’s caravan to tell them… about 6am! The reactions of my family definitely were the best bit about achieving the result.
The messaging between all my friends from my course and finding out what others had achieved throughout that day was fun, very proud of my peers and how hard they have worked over the last 3/4 years! Especially finding out my tutor group’s dissertation grades was such a nice moment after spending many hours with them over the year. Cannot wait for graduation in a month’s time and to thank the staff of the Computer Science Department for all of their support over the last 4 years in person.
I know for sure that my experiences and my degree has set me up well for my future, and I will always be thankful for that.
