Further expansion for Sheffield software consultants

The Curve Consulting welcomes four new team members 

Award winning South Yorkshire software development and technology consultancy, The Curve, has expanded its team with the appointment of a new Delivery Manager.

Kate Rennie joins the Sheffield-based business with immediate effect, bringing with her more than five years’ experience working on the delivery of projects on behalf of clients, from sales proposals through to specification and delivery.

She also has experience in the manufacturing, healthcare and technology sectors – writing applications for solutions across a variety of platforms.

Kate will now work alongside the senior management team to provide process improvements and create agile methodologies.

The strategic appointment follows a rapid period of growth for the company, which was founded by Paul and James Ridgway in 2019, and which specialises in digital transformations that allow businesses to run more efficiently and cost effectively.

The business, which works on behalf of a wide range of regional, national and international clients including The Rotherham NHS Foundation trust, Enable Manufacturing, and charity Shelter, has also welcomed summer interns Filipe Cierkosz and James Hall, as well as Adam Brown who is currently studying maths, physics and computer science at Sheffield UTC Academy Trust.

The new hires take The Curve’s total headcount to over 20 in 3 years, and form part of its ongoing commitment to bolstering the software development skills within the Sheffield City Region. The Curve are also members of Sheffield Digital and are committed to supporting the up-and-coming talent within the region.

Welcoming them to the firm, CEO and Co-founder Paul Ridgway, said: “We are delighted to welcome Kate to the management team in her role as a Delivery Manager.

“She joins the team following what has been an exciting period of growth for The Curve, fuelled in part by the emphasis that organisations have continued to place on technology following the pandemic.

“Her expertise will enable us to further improve our project delivery to clients, further bolstering our existing offering to our clients and enabling us to keep up with increased client demand.

“We are also excited to welcome Filipe, James and Adam who join us on a temporary bases to further their own experience and understanding within the software development arena,

“Their enthusiasm and willingness to learn is admirable, and we are already benefiting from having them as part of the team.

“We feel a strong sense of duty to support the future digital talent within the region, and their appointments are also indicative of the ambitions that we have for the future as we continue to recruit alongside our expanding client list.”

Commenting on her new role, Kate said: “In a relatively short space of time The Curve has amassed an impressive client base, and a demonstrable track record of delivering major digital transformations across the private, public and third sectors.

“I am very much looking forward to joining the team and helping to implement process improvements and create agile methodologies that will allow the business to gear up for growth and respond to client demand in real time.”
