“For women aspiring to work in the finance industry, I advise leveraging your skills, seeking mentorship, and embracing challenges as opportunities for growth. Stay persistent, build strong networks, and don't shy away from showcasing your expertise and leadership abilities.

Alice Goble, Senior Project Manager

What does your job involve?

“I am a Senior Project Manager at Low6, working with clients globally, namely in Australia, the United States, EU and UK. My role involves delivering projects on-time and in-scope, liaising with stakeholders both internally and externally, and thoroughly testing products before release.

“I’m also responsible for ensuring that each team such as marketing and data are included at the relevant stages of the project lifecycle, in order to successfully achieve each deadline.”

What kind of experience did you need to enter into the role?

“As with most roles, no two days are the same. But my experience in projects started from being given an opportunity to trying something new, and there was no going back from there!

“Although I do not have a university degree, being willing to learn, taking on new challenges and sometimes jumping in head first is all you need, though I am also required to be organised, flexible, and have good time management, to manage multiple projects at a time.”

Have you had any boundaries that you have had to overcome and if so, how did you overcome them?

“Working with different countries means that we must ensure we develop products and services that adhere to any rules / laws, such as the GDPR in the UK.

“This means we must work very closely with the client, and even undergo pen tests to certify we have met security standards.

“Setting appropriate timescales from the start of each project is essential, to ensure we have accommodated for any potential product update requirements.”

Describe your role in three words.

“Motivating, Interesting and Educational”

Do you have any advice for women looking to work in the industry?

“Do what you love, and call it work! You can’t buy happiness, so dive in, as you never know where you’ll end up.”

Who's your favourite sport team?

“Stu would want me to say Hearts, and Chris would want me to say Rangers, but it would have to be the Lionesses.”

Continue to participate in the growth of Low6, through bringing client ideas and concepts to life globally, whilst also taking our flagship product, UltimateFan, to the next level!
