Alexandra Dilkes

Senior Project Specialist


I gained a BA (Hons) in German and Music from the University of Sheffield in 2008 and spent a couple of years studying and working in Germany before returning to the UK to work for Rolls Royce’s Global Helpdesk as a German speaker. I joined AST as a Project Manager in early 2011 and was promoted to Operations Manager in 2012. I’ve since had two children and feel extremely lucky that the company allows me to work part-time hours so I can spend lots of my time nurturing my young family whilst still enjoying the intellectual challenges and opportunities that a career in the translation industry offers. One of the best parts of my current role is its varied nature; tasks have encompassed everything from restructuring internal databases to managing outbound marketing processes to allow me to support my colleagues with their ever-changing needs and requirements.
