Elisha Kirkham
Recruitment Manager

Elisha is Softcat’s Recruitment Manager, and has worked within the tech space for 10 years. Born and raised in Manchester by a single working mum, with an innate and undeniable passion for people from day one, it was no big surprise when Lish ended up pursuing a career in People and Talent. In recent years, Lish’s passion for enabling others, most specifically supporting women in business, has skyrocketed. As a result, she has been recognised with the award for CRN Outstanding Returner 2023, and also delivered a keynote at CRN Women in Tech Fest last year titled ‘The Power of Vulnerability in Leadership’. One of Lish’s biggest loves in life is getting people excited about the things that she’s excited about, and one of those major things is exploring the impact that strong and effective leadership and community can have on female empowerment in the workplace. Lish is testament to the fact that with the right support system around you, the potential that we as women in industry can realise is immeasurable.
