Profile: Ricarda

“History, and especially Antiquity, have fascinated me for as long as I can remember. One of my favourite books at around the age of 12 was about a girl who was the sole survivor of an attack by the sea people on a Greek village – rather grim, I know.

HM Treasury

I work at HM Treasury, where my job is to advise the Chancellor of the Exchequer and other Treasury Ministers on the best way to invest the billions that the Government spends on infrastructure in order to support productivity and economic growth. My degree in Classics (I was at Emmanuel College from 2010 to 2013) was excellent preparation for the world of work. It taught me to think critically, and structure arguments in a clear and concise way that allows Ministers to understand complex policy issues.

The 2017 Video Competition attracted an exciting and creative range of entries about the Ancient World. 2017’s joint winners were Herts and Essex High School, and Bonhoeffer College. Well done to all entrants!
