Susanna Lawson speaker at Women leading in business event

Susanna started her career as a psychology graduate from the University of Manchester, and went on to work with adults with learning difficulties in the NHS. Susanna then had to complete a NVQ in care to prove her practical competencies – and her involvement in vocational training began. After completing her NVQ levels 2 and 3, she soon moved up the ranks, and was appointed the National Contract Manager for an independent training provider, responsible for over 1,000 apprentices across the UK.

Throughout her journey she witnessed huge inefficiencies at every stage of the sector, and decided with her partner to build a technology solution: OneFile.

OneFile has developed from a back bedroom start up into the leading eportfolio software in the education sector. Since 2012, OneFile has grown from 19 to over 75 staff and revenue has increased by over 400% with over a million users.OneFile received a Queens Award for Innovation in 2017, SaaS Business of the Year and CIPD People Management in 2019. Susanna was awarded the 2019 Outstanding Achievement award at the EVAs in September.Susanna is a mum of 2 – Che who is 9 and Seren who is 5.
