Visit to Xero

Xero (2)

Extract from Welink (school magazine), written by Aleisha Amohia (Tech Prefect)

“On 17 September, the GBs (Computer Club) ventured out … to Xero HQ…  under the care of Ben Amor and Elisa Christian. We had a great chat in one of their many meeting rooms about careers in the IT industry, studying in a computing degree, how accountancy and computing come together and what it was like working for a company like Xero. Then, we were taken on a tour around the building and were excited to see the three floors of double-screens, funky decor and white, open spaces. The kitchen was a highlight, with the vending machines, big coffee machine and wide view of the street below. It was inspiring to meet such down-to-earth people who are so clever and driven by their passion for technology, as well as be exposed to the workplace of a hugely successful software firm that is only expanding.”

Xero made the girls welcome and again it is good to see companies such as Xero willing to engage with schools.
