At Hastings, we value the expertise of all our professionals, yet we recognise we need to do our part to help bring more gender balance to the data and tech industry. We're committed to celebrating and supporting women in these areas, building a more diverse pool of data and tech professionals, and changing the profile of the industry over time.   

Our colleague Iona joined us in April 2023 as part of Digital Development, the team responsible for updating our Hastings Direct website and app to make it easier for our customers. 

Calling herself a ‘career-changer’, Iona previously worked as a Biomedical Scientist but turned to tech as a way to further challenge herself in a fast-paced industry. Now a brilliant Digital Developer, Iona shares how she moved into the tech space through her passion for problem solving.
