Preeti Singh

After completing her Economics degree at the University of Nottingham, Preeti decided to sign up to the Teach First graduate programme and spent 2 years as a secondary school Mathematics teacher in a struggling school in West London.

The intention was to give back to the community she grew up in and take part in the Teach First Leadership Development programme before committing to the corporate world. During this time, Preeti was studying towards the PGCE qualification to become a qualified teacher, whilst teaching full time and positively impacting students’ lives.

Then, in 2017, Preeti joined KPMG on the graduate programme within Technology Risk Consulting and has since been working in Information Risk Management or IT Audit. She grew really quickly within her role, working well above her grade, leading teams, taking ownership of various work-streams, adding value for clients and building strong meaningful relationships both internally and externally.

Alongside her demanding day job working on one of the largest clients in the insurance sector, Preeti looked for ways to stay connected to and helping students’ lives. This is where she came across the IT’s Her Future Juniors programme which was in its planning stage and yet to launch its first event, designed to educate young female students around technology careers and providing long term mentoring. Preeti helped this programme to grow, taking a part in leading events, sourcing schools/students, organising key internal and external speakers and launching further new initiatives such as primary school workshops. In 2019, she took over as the lead of the programme and has been training Future Leaders of the programme, collaborating with other technology firms, overseeing activities and innovating and implementing new innovative workshops for the benefit of future young women.

Outside of her work life, Preeti is passionate about baking, wellness and meeting new people.
