Kickstart Developer – Howard

Who are you?

Hey, I’m Howard! I’m the Website Developer. You’ll sometimes see me sat behind the front desk working away at all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff. You may also see me at workshops or focus groups!

How long have you been working at The Network?

I’m new! I started with the Network in November of 2021. I’ve been here just over a week as I’m writing this and I’ve already learnt so much!

Why did you join The Network?

I was first introduced to the Network as a client. Working with Gabby, I was able to gain the confidence I needed to face working life alongside making goals and taking the right steps to make it happen!

After being introduced with the Network, I was made aware they had an open opportunity I wanted to be a part of. This is my first real step into working life, for it to be a part of something that is helping others, those in similar position to the one I was in, it makes me proud to be a part of it.

What does your job entail?

I work to maintain and add to our Website and Social Media.

I want to create a smooth and straight forward user experience across our website to make sure there aren’t any barriers with getting into contact with the Network or finding the help that you may need.

Across our social media, I want to help to expand our reach so that those who need the Network most can find us. I also want to share our upcoming opportunities so that everyone who could benefit, can.

If you were hosting a dinner party which 5 people would you invite and why?
  1. Sir David Attenborough – The most respectable person on the planet
  2. Neil deGrasse Tyson – He has a mind-blowing amount of things to say and learn from
  3. Richard Ayoade – Guaranteed good night with him and a good fit for the above two
  4. Gordon Ramsay – I just hope he’s cooking the food
  5. Aubrey Plaza – Her sarcastic nature should add some spice to this otherwise bland table
