Mr Harry Trick

What are you doing now?

Harry TrickI currently work for UnitedLex Corporation in the eDiscovery Professional Services team as a Project Manager. Initially after completing my studies at Northumbria I joined MD5 Ltd., a forensics company in Yorkshire, and stayed there for 18 months developing my skills. I was then was offered a job in London working for another Northumbria alumni, Stuart Clarke, at Millnet Ltd. This move allowed me to further my skills until I was eventually approached by EY to join their Forensic Technology and Discovery Services team. After almost three years with EY I took a role with UnitedLex as a Project Manager. I now use my industry experience as well as the knowledge I gained at Northumbria to run end to end electronic discovery projects for golden circle law firm clients as well as international regulators.

How did studying at Northumbria help you achieve your career goals / give your career an edge?

My degree was very focused on what I wanted to do and this allowed me to have an edge over my competitors when it came to job applications as the course is widely respected in the industry. As part of my degree I also did an industrial placement with MD5 Ltd. and was offered a job with them whilst on placement but turned it down in order to finish my studies. They understood and changed the offer to enable me to join them upon completion of my degree, which I accepted.

What was the best thing about your course?

The support from the lecturers and the opportunity to do a placement as part of my course.

Who inspired you the most, and why?

Philip Anderson. As my course tutor and mentor he allowed me to reach my full potential and has continued to support me after graduation.

Which skills/knowledge did you learn on your course that you use most now/throughout your career?

All of the computer forensic-based skills are used on a daily basis in my job.

What did you enjoy most about your time at Northumbria University?

The whole 'university experience' from the social aspect of meeting new people and making new lifelong friends to the educational side of my time at Northumbria where I was armed with the skills and knowledge to grow and develop myself.

Go for it. You won't regret a second of your time at Northumbria.
