New faces and (a few!) celebrations

As 2022 kicks off, it’s a good time to celebrate our team and reflect on how we changed and grew last year. We saw new client partnerships, impactful work delivered and a whole host of new faces joining our team. You can read a little more about the impact we’ve had in 2021 in our blog

Team growth 

It was so wonderful to welcome new team members last year, and there were quite a few! We saw 20 new people join us and we’re recruiting for more (see the end of the post for the roles we’re looking for!). 

As a business with a core focus on innovative research and design, it’s not surprising that we welcomed seven new Consultants in 2021. They’re all brilliant new colleagues, helping to build out our Government team with NHSx, and our Home and Work pod, delivering our growing programme of work with Google, and adding to our technical consultancy offering: 

  • Nicola Pritchard, Senior User Researcher
  • Julia Putnina, Senior UX Consultant
  • Faye Wang, UX Consultant
  • Sharon Webster, UX Consultant
  • Megan Simmons, UX Consultant
  • Henry Bacon, UX Consultant
  • Tumeka Burston, Developer

Welcoming new partners and expanding our programmes with existing clients has meant that we have needed a whole host of new programme directors and project managers to deliver the best impact. We’ve been lucky enough to have found some fantastic talent, and brought on six new people across our client teams, including: 

  • Paulina Lewandowska, Programme Director
  • Nick Squire, Programme Director
  • Sarah Lowin, Senior Project Manager
  • Roldan Villanueva, Senior Project Manager
  • Christine Chan, Project Manager
  • Temilola Adeleye, Project Manager

Finally, we’ve seen some new people join the operations and sales sides of the business. Bolstering our finance operations, forming a marketing team and adding to our new business, bid management and account management skills, we have welcomed: 

  • Gabriella Lambert, Client Engagement Director
  • Chris Edge, Account Director
  • Victoria Hunter, Financial Controller
  • Lauren Howells, Senior Marketing Manager 
  • Lauren Bailey, Marketing Executive
  • Teresa O’Malley, Bid Manager

Team celebrations

While we’re all currently working from home, and have a remote-first policy, it was nice to see a little more of each other in 2021. We even managed a few get-togethers!

We’re always on the lookout for brilliant people to join the business though, so if your skillset doesn’t quite match the roles above, but you’re keen to find out more about working at cxpartners, get in touch.

Fiz is our Managing Director, but she's been many things. She likes pies and nuts.
