Hi there. I’m Sheriff. It’s great to be a part of the first ever Emerging Talent programme.

Before joining Places for People, I worked in various different areas of business administration but felt this didn’t provide me with enough of a challenge. The Emerging Talent programme has given me real opportunities to apply my skills in a prestigious company and to develop my skills in support of my desire to become a big data architect.

One of the biggest challenges was integrating into my team, as there were lots of other experienced members who were more familiar with the processes involved. My colleagues really helped with this though – they were friendly, helpful and really helped me integrate from the outset.

I’m looking forward to taking full ownership of all the projects I have been assigned, as well as working with my colleagues to continue the positive and supportive culture within our team.

About me

  • Prior to joining the programme, I completed a BSc (Hons) Mathematics at the University of Derby and a MSc in Big Data at the University of Stirling.
  • I’ve also worked as a Teaching Assistant to broaden my skillset.
  • I hope to one day create a school that teaches sports science and technology.
