STEPHANIE BRADSHAW

ASSISTANT DIRECTOR/RUNNER

 

I changed career having worked in F1 for over 10 years. Previously being a Race Team Infrastructure Engineer travelling to each race and solely managing the IT Infrastructure and then a Technical Project Manager. My past experience has given me many transferable skills such as: leading small to large projects and teams, managing budgets over £1m and extensive organisational, time keeping and communication skills. As well as the ability to multitask under extreme pressure and think ahead. My work ethic is to be pro-active, always thinking ahead, having good communication and remaining calm to create a fun and friendly but efficient working environment. My experience supports my ambition to become a successful Assistant Director in Films, Drama and Television.

Full driving license with own car.(+25)

Previous Experience

I was previously a technical project manager in the IT Industry for over ten years. After completing a year in industry at Microsoft, I started my career in IT with Mitsui Sumitomo Bank (Cash Management Services) and Honda (as IT Support) and then as a Race Team Infrastructure Engineer travelling to each F1 race and managing the IT Infrastructure for McLaren. This led me to Project Management in which I have managed small to large projects with budgets over £1m and managed a PMO of 10 PMs and BA's. I have worked for large corporations in a variety of industries enabling me to understand my environment and successfully lead project teams and manage projects on time and to budget.

 

Projects include:

  • Office 365 migration and Office 2016 rollout (McLaren)
  • Office 365 Training plan for over 3000 users (McLaren)
  • Company separation project (undisclosed)
  • WAN migration (1) 120 UK stores (Flight Centre) (2) 14 sites worldwide (McLaren)
  • Mission Control Design and Implementation in Japan (McLaren/Honda)
  • Implementation of Automotive Facility (IT) in Spain (McLaren)
  • Implementation of new sites (IT) - Bahrain, US, Tokyo (McLaren)
  • Design and Implementation of a Wind Tunnel communication strategy between UK and Germany (McLaren)
  • Design and implementation of personalised bespoke document software (Flight Centre)
  • Implementation of mobile application (Flight Centre)
  • RFP Process for HR System (Flight Centre)

 

Industries previously worked in:

Financial, Automotive, Travel, Information Technology

 

"Stephanie is one who rarely needs to be asked to do anything. She has, more often than not, already done it of her own accord. Attentive, watchful, helpful and wanting to learn. A great addition to your crew. I look forward to having her on my next shoot"

Patrick Cadell, 1st AD

"Stephanie evolved very quickly as both a 3rd and 2nd AD, bright and good at using her intuition. I would work with her again"

Tom Allan, 1st AD

"I really enjoyed working with you and you demonstrated intelligence, communication, the ability to listen properly and act on instruction as well as being a reliable part of the team on the floor, all of which are qualities I value in an AD"

Tom White, 1st AD

"A natural AD - bit older with worldly experience. I'd take her on to any production I worked on. Keen, intelligent and has those two qualities that all AD's need; common sense and intuition"

Toni Staples, 1st AD
