Samantha Horsman
Infrastructure Transformation Manager, Digital & Technology at Wellcome Trust


I’ve worked at Wellcome for over 9 years in a lot of different roles, supporting Wellcome Collection, HR and Facilities Projects and now as part of the Leadership team in Digital & Technology as the Infrastructure Transformation Manager. My days are spent with the team trying to unpick 20 years of I.T. legacy, transforming our infrastructure to a sustainable and cost-effective hybrid model, whilst also changing our old ways of working to a more DevOps, agile and truly collaborative technology culture. 

My focus is how to balance people’s wellbeing and ambition with the tumultuous world of changing technology, ensuring the organisation can still do the day job in the meantime. An exciting and daunting venture that gives us space to try, fail and improve all the time.
