RickaiaWe are delighted to announce that Rickaia Browne, our e-rostering project manager, has been crowned the 2018 rising star at this year’s prestigious national Women in IT Excellence Awards.

This year’s Women in IT Excellence Awards were the biggest yet, with hundreds of nominations.

Congratulations Rickaia! Keep up the great work.

Although they didn’t win, just being shortlisted is a fantastic achievement. Well done!
