From design to development, from marketing to sales, and from project implementation to support, meet the team who make all things possible
Rebecca joined Youmanage in 2018 as a member of the Client Services Team where she completed her Digital Applications apprenticeship within 6 months. Rebecca onboards new clients and provides extensive training sessions to help them get the most from Youmanage.
Rebecca recently completed a Digital Marketing qualification allowing her to help with marketing activities such as writing blog content, updating social media, and updating the website.
When not at work, she enjoys good food, catching up on the latest reality TV episodes and socialising with her friends with a gin!
Maddie joined the Client Services Support team in June 2020 as an apprentice. As part of the support team, she is responsible for delivering training sessions to clients among other duties and ensuring that they are receiving the best possible care.
As she joined Youmanage ‘working from home’, she has still not met all her fellow teammates, but we are hoping that will change soon enough!
Most weekends you will find her in a pub or a club (if they ever open again!!) socialising with friends and she also enjoys travelling to new and exciting places. Maddie also loves going to festivals and raves that include techno music.
Maurice is the founding member of the core engineering team at Youmanage and leads a team of highly dedicated engineers to create and deliver one of the fastest growing online HR systems in the UK.
Maurice is responsible for ensuring that the design, stability, and scalability of Youmanage is continually developed to create a product that clients love to use.
Outside of Youmanage you will find him, tools in hand, as he attempts to renovate his new house. However, when not neck-deep in DIY, Maurice enjoys spending time with family, getting his geek on and a cold beer on a warm day.
Back in 2017, Katie joined the Youmanage team as Marketing Executive. Subsequently, she took a year out to undertake an MA in Creative Writing down in London, but has now happily returned to her post here at Youmanage.
Within the team Katie looks after our marketing activities across the board from campaign planning, communicating with existing clients, managing our online presence, and working with external agencies to aid lead generation.
Outside of work, you'll almost certainly find Katie in her art studio painting, or writing and producing music on her laptop.
Jason is a creative and talented web developer, who joined the Youmanage team in 2013 as part of his graduate placement program at Stirling University.
Jason specialises in user experience and spends much of his time concocting innovative ways to turn complex problems into simple, elegant and intuitive designs, whether that be in the form of product enhancements or client support.
When he isn't coding, drinking coffee or pushing pixels, you'll likely find Jason on the golf course, or in the company of his beloved French bulldog, Peanut.
Lorraine is part of the Business Development Team and comes with a wealth of experience working with clients to understand their HR needs. Lorraine has been working within the HR Technology sector for several years and before that a blue chip technology company.
Lorraine’s technical background gives her a clear advantage when understanding customer challenges when adopting new tech.
Outside work Lorraine can be found out and about in the National Park with her 2 border terriers, standing on the rugby field side-lines cheering her sons on or mixing a mean Martini for the Gin Shed members. Lorraine is also a Trustee of a local charity and Vice Chair of her local business networking group.
Gillian is a recognised expert in the delivery of client services, operational processes, and project management, and is responsible for the design and execution of Youmanage’s competitive consultancy and support services.
With her vast experience and knowledge, gained throughout her 20+ years working in various product development and professional services roles, Gillian also takes a lead role in aligning client requirements with our product strategy, usability enhancements, and the creation and delivery of our overall development roadmap.
After sitting at a desk all week, Gillian prefers to spend her weekends outdoors, pottering in the garden or going for long walks then coming back to good food and a glass (or two) of wine!
Paul is a highly experienced member of the Development Team, a world-class Agile Guru, and one-time member of the Agile Alliance. He took up computing after graduating in Botany and after many years trying to make large organisations agile, he now enjoys being buried in code working within a smaller company and one that is located within an hour's commute of great countryside!
Paul has many varied interests in all branches of science, the natural world, the mountains and glens and a passion for music and malt whisky; he always has his nose in a book, or on a website, whilst enjoying a drink or taking in the great outdoors.
He spends a great deal of his free time managing the largest Agile Development group on LinkedIn.
Nick has more than 25 years of leadership experience, where he has held a variety of executive positions spanning marketing, business development and HR product strategy and has been CEO of Youmanage since 2010.
Nick led the acquisition of the Youmanage business in 2010, leading to its official re-launch in 2013 following significant product redevelopment, and has steered Youmanage in its rise from start-up to an industry leading cloud HR software provider.
Outside of work, Nick has a keen interest in DIY and walking and has an enviable appetite for the appreciation of real ale. He also spends time brushing up and retaining his skills practicing his musical instruments, those being trumpet and bagpipes.
Emma joined the Client Services Team in April 2021. Along with the rest of her team, she is responsible for delivering client training sessions and ensuring all Youmanage clients are utilising the system to its full capacity, based on their specific requirements. At the same time, Emma ensures that all users of Youmanage receive exceptional service, every step of the way.
She is very excited to be joining us as we start our return to the office as she has been able to meet most of her teammates - in person!
Emma has a strong background in photography and spends much of her time outside the office perfecting her craft. But otherwise, you'll find her with a glass of pinot, a documentary and her mischievous giant schnauzer puppy, Dexter.
