Membership Grade: Professional Member
I graduated with BSc. in Mathematics from Exeter University, and then pursued a career in IT, including 18 years as a freelance contractor, and latterly 16 years with HSBC in Sheffield.
In late 2016 I seized the opportunity to re-train in Indexing, having seen at close quarters what is involved. The attributes required have many overlaps with my previous career, including attention to detail, computer skills, accuracy and analysis of complex ideas. I have recently completed the SI training course, attaining accreditation as a professional member (MSocInd)
A conscientious and enthusiastic indexer, I am looking to build on my training, which has included writing ‘shadow’ indexes for my professional indexing partner. My subject specialisms are principally in science, IT and mathematics. I am also a keen walker, cyclist and bell ringer.
