Miranda has worked at Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, and cites Bill Gates as her greatest inspiration.

In her spare time, Miranda Brawn is interested in philanthropic and diversity issues. She is a patron for Black British Academics, which aims to increase the number of black professors in the UK, and a board member of the Association of Women Barristers and Women in Banking and Finance.
