hedgehog lab are proud of the culture they have built across global offices and it’s all thanks to the amazing team. This meet the team series has been curated by one of our newest team members, Kathryn Wharton. 

Meet the team: Susan Willis

Hi I’m Susan, hedgehog lab’s’ Resource Manager. I’ve been part of the team since September 2019 after accepting a three month secondment from one of our partners, design company Different. 

After over decade working at Different in both back of house and client facing roles, from an account director to a producer, I was ready for a new challenge. With a background in advertising and limited technical knowledge, hedgehog lab presented me with that challenge which I fully embraced and became a permanent member of the team in late 2019.  

A resource manager is a key member of the team who bridges the gap between commercial, development and design. I work closely with the heads of our Product, Design and Tech teams and who rely on my strategic planning skills to help match staff onto projects depending on their areas of expertise so that our clients get the best possible outputs. One of the things I enjoy most about working at hedgehog lab is the continuous opportunity to learn new things.

Apart from my desire to work in a creative environment my career path has evolved over time and has led me in different directions, but I have consistently taken great pride in my work. I find value in doing a good job and making a good impression which has led me to being recommended for other roles. Like Kathryn, I found changing roles in the past terrifying but I found support within the new teams that I joined.
