This STEMNET resource introduces one of the STEM Ambassadors, Niamh Hyslop, who is a business analyst for British Telecom where she works on internal business improvement and transformation.
Although her first degree was in Law, Niamh was attracted to the fast-paced nature of the technology industry and decided to do a Masters in Computing.
Niamh works in business improvement, where she identifies how the company can do things better, simpler and faster in order to improve BT’s service to its customers.
Talking about her work as a STEM Ambassador, Niamh says: “I want to inspire young people to think about working in technology. It is a fantastic area to work in as I never do the same thing from one day to another.”
Niamh is pictured at the BT Showcase, where the company demonstrates its information and communications technology solutions to potential customers.
