We are thrilled to announce Julia Hodgson has joined SmartCo as a Project Manager. Wishing you a warm welcome from the entire SmartCo team.

We sat down with Julia to ask her a few questions about her career path, her new role at SmartCo, what attracted her to SmartCo and what she enjoys doing in her spare time.

Hi Julia. What has been your career leading up to SmartCo?

For the past 15 years I have mainly worked with software providers who supply to the NHS and Private sector. I’ve worked in all areas of software development and delivery, travelling up and down the country meeting and supporting various NHS organisations in their digital health transformation projects. A couple of years ago I wanted to experience working on the other side of the coin, directly as an NHS organisation responsible for delivering a digital solution. This is where I decided to become a contractor for my own business, working in Project Management roles and where I met SmartCo!

What is your new role and what will you be focusing on?

My role at SmartCo is a Project Manager, in the Health vertical. I will be focusing on working with existing and new NHS clients who have commissioned SmartCo to help with their digital transformation projects. Bringing experience from a technical and operational perspective as well as having worked with many different key stakeholders, I’m able to apply these skills and support the continued delivery and success of projects.

What’s unique about SmartCo?

SmartCo has a unique culture where everyone is so happy to help one another. They are connected naturally even though most are remote, but most importantly, they have evolved with the times and the need for a brilliant work-life balance and flexibility. I’m at the point in my life where I have a young family who need me around more than ever, and SmartCo make that possible.

What are you looking forward to most about joining?

I’m really looking forward to meeting all the inspiring people SmartCo have in their team. There are so many skillsets and experiences that have been so carefully gathered and formed into one big team. I’m very much looking forward to growing in my own career and learning from the people around me.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

In my spare time you’ll find me out and about with my husband and kids, exploring new places and trying out new experiences. We hope to buy a campervan later in the year so that may become the majority of our spare time!
