Kathryn Jones

Dr Kathryn Jones has worked at the School of Computer Science and Informatics for more than three years as a lecturer, teaching modules on BSc Applied Software Engineering. She is also Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching for the School.

“I spent 12 years working as a Commercial Software Engineer in the telecommunications industry where I went from being a junior developer in a start-up company to a senior developer at an SME. I decided to make a move back to academia when the opportunity came to apply for a lectureship at the National Software Academy (NSA). I have recently been promoted from Lecturer to Senior Lecturer.

“The School is very supportive of flexible working which has really helped me to balance the responsibilities of having a family with a rewarding and busy career. I have two school aged children, and the School recently arranged my timetable commitments around school drop-off times. I also have caring responsibilities for my son who has Cystic Fibrosis; I take him to a check-up every other month and am able to work flexibly around this.

“I have a great line manager who I can talk to about issues and not only does she listen, she helps out with suggestions on how to make things better. I am fortunate to be part of a wonderful team not only at the NSA but more broadly in the School. Knowing you are part of a great team is very reassuring when times get difficult and their support has been instrumental in how I have been able to cope with the pressures of delivering my teaching during the covid-19 pandemic.”
