I was responsible for the organisation and planning of several Hackathons and tech meet-ups. Sourcing attendees from the local London tech community.

In addition, we also provide customers with routing services and dedicated liquidity through an Alternative Trading System, GETCO Execution Services (GES). I worked to remove the reliance on third party agency suppliers and establish a technical value proposition for prospective candidates. The reduction in cost and the growth of interest in the GETCO brand led to increased UK campus activities, an ability for the UK office to build pipelines of candidates for the first time and a chance to refine the ad-hoc recruitment practices that had been in place.
