MBN Solutions are absolutely delighted that Bethany Rodgers joined the business just prior to Christmas to take up a key role as Delivery Lead for MBN Academy.

Bethany has over 3 years’ experience within recruitment, sourcing, talent acquisition and management and a wealth of knowledge of Technology related disciplines within the Scottish business sector. Her previous roles have seen her focus on new and emerging technologies like Data Science, Machine Learning, Software Development and DevOps. She also has a particular strength and knowledge around early stage start-up and scale-up businesses.

Bethany also brings considerable expertise in candidate management to the Academy, having successfully delivered multiple complex projects for a variety of clients throughout Scotland.

Bethany joins MBN Academy at a key stage in our development as we move towards a larger, more complex delivery model. Bethany’s expertise, knowledge and drive will enable us to deliver the very best quality of service to our community. Bethany will lead on the delivery of critical projects like The Data Lab MSc. Placement Programme, utilising her previous experience to enrich and improve the process in a number of key areas.

Bethany will provide guidance to students throughout the MSc. Placement Programme in addition to supporting Host Companies as they join the initiative. Bethany’s role has already seen her assisting with the delivery of Employability training sessions at participating Universities and advising potential Host Companies on the benefits and structure of the Programme.

On her reasons for joining MBN, Bethany said:

“On first meeting with Rob and Michael, I was impressed by the future plans of the business. MBN are very ambitious and are true experts in the markets that they operate in, they immerse themselves in the marketplace and have fantastic relationships with their community.

The Data Lab MSc. Programme is really interesting! I’m so excited to be leading the delivery of this project, working alongside world-class students and industry leaders.

The Programme is really different, the Data Lab and MBN solutions are passionate about plugging the data skills shortage in Scotland. It’s very refreshing to see so many companies eager to work towards the benefit of Scotland.

Within my first few weeks here, I have been so busy and have learned so much already. I have coached students at an Employability session, gained an understanding of courses studied on the MSc. Data lab Programme, met with industry leaders and created oh so many spreadsheets!

I’m really excited to start my journey with MBN and see where the future takes me in the company!”

MBN Solutions CEO, Michael Young commented “Attracting someone of Bethany’s calibre to our Academy model is testament to the increasing importance of our work within the wider Data Science community. She has a wealth of experience in delivery and account management and we look forward to her contribution to both MBN Academy and The Data Lab MSc. Placement Programme.”
