Jessica REESBY , (founder and ceo) started the technology recruitment organisation focusing on education for the technology industry and promoting women into technology roles via a special women in tech recruitment division
Reesby recruitment specialises in technology recruitment with a division devoted to females assisting entry level girls gain their first role and also helping executives to achieve the next level in their career and aiding organisations to improve their gender diversity and hire female tech talent.

The initiatives together help from getting female students interested into technology, training them to give them support in their career and placing them into jobs.
DIVERSITY is at the core of everything JESSICA does both in her volunteering for gogirls, awsn or other programs to help women flourish in IT
by VOLUNTEERING at existing women in tech events and using her 24,000 followers to promote messages on social media and linkedin to get a message across on behalf of the partners and organisations she believes are doing good work to help them get their message out in the open.
JESSICA REESBY set this business up on her own at 24 years old after growing up in poverty, a single mother after domestic violence was common place in the household. She has written an article about her inspiring story on LINKEDIN
JESSICA did mention to me that initially she was doubted by some and had faced some challenges due to the fact of completely self funding the company but this was overcome due to companies supporting her and using the services REESBY provided
THE COMPANY has launched REESBY EVENTS AND REESBY ACADEMY after success in REESBY RECRUITMENT.
