Upon completing her degree in International Politics at Kings College London, Hazel joined Accenture as a Business and Technology Integration Associate. During her 6 years at Accenture, she worked across several industries including Public Safety, Financial Services and Resources. While the role enabled her to understand the strategic benefits of putting data at the heart of a business, she wanted to get closer to the data itself. This led her to upskill in her spare time by taking courses across Python, SQL, Data Ethics and Data Analysis. Equipped with her consultancy experience and her foundational technical skills, she took the leap to join Kubrick Advanced in October 2021.
Since starting her client placement 6 months ago, Hazel has led a Squad of 2 Cloud Engineers and 4 Data Engineers. She is currently working on a project which seeks to create a Global Data Platform that will enable more efficient data sharing, encourage collaboration, and unlock insights from the company’s vast datasets. Through her work she is building her expertise in both AWS and Snowflake and is planning to further enhance her skills with a number of certifications.
She is currently working on helping to define the Data Engineering and Reliability Capability Pillar for Kubrick Advanced which will help to preserve the culture of the team whilst supporting the development of the consultants as Kubrick expands.
Coming from a non-STEM background herself, she is keen for others to see that there isn’t just a standard definition for someone working in the field of data. She actively encourages others to step outside of their defined role to broaden their understanding of the data landscape. Hazel is keen for consultants to see their time at Kubrick not just as the start of their data career but also the opportunity to shape the careers of future data leaders.
