I never thought I would find a role in my local area where I would learn something new every day and contribute to projects that make a difference. Prior to joining Sparta Global I was studying forensics and performing autopsies. Six months after finishing my training at Sparta, I’m coding every day, and have limitless opportunities in my role at a big four consulting firm.
Before joining Sparta Global, I had played for the under-18 national football team in my native Estonia. I then elected to study Politics in England before being introduced to Sparta Global. After training as a Business Analyst, I was assigned to work as a Scrum Master in a major energy company. It's very exciting and I really enjoy it! I like that you can be right in the middle of innovation and help to create something that can change processes for the better for someone else in their day-to-day job.
I’ve been interested in computers and technology for as long as I can remember. But, after GCSEs, A Levels, and my degree, I can honestly say the hardest part was trying to get a job at the end. After months and months of applying for dozens of roles, I felt a huge sense of relief to have found the incredibly supportive Sparta Global - a company that was determined to help me succeed. My personal transformation, with the help of Sparta, has made me incredibly proud of the person I have become. In just 18 months I have moved into an apartment in Liverpool with my best friend, started working for one of the world’s largest tech consultancies, and my sense of motivation has skyrocketed.
After university, I really wanted to get into tech, but I wasn’t sure how to do this with my Psychology background. Sparta offered the perfect solution, implementing the business skills I already had, and teaching me the tech skills I needed. They really allowed me to get into tech easily. I’m now a Business Analyst in the mobile and Web team at an asset management company and I love it! When my contract was coming to an end with Sparta and they happened to have the headcount for a permanent Agile Analyst role, I was lucky to convert to a permanent member of staff.
I didn't go to university – instead studying and graduating from two different colleges in both psychology and music technology. I spent a number of years in various retail and sales roles, but I had a newfound passion for tech and Sparta enabled me to harness that. Sparta does a great job at bringing people from all walks of life together to work in an industry that they are passionate about. It is a brilliant company to work for, has a great atmosphere and is full of amazing people.
At school in Romania, Computer science wasn’t really my strongest subject. For this reason I pursued a career in Aviation Technology and Management instead. In my first year of University I did 10 hours of flight training but then Covid drastically impacted the industry. Sparta then offered me an incredible opportunity to train as an SRE for a team deployment with one of their professional services clients. I had no prior coding experience, but I really enjoy how dynamic and mentally rewarding the role is! Women can not only make it in STEM, but can just as successfully switch paths into tech too.
