Arman Quddus, has joined Provide Digital as Product and Innovation Manager as the company continues on its journey of rapid growth. Arman will be responsible for leading the development and implementation of new and existing product ideas and innovations from conception to launch.
Having worked at Provide CIC as a Graduate Business Assistant since 2021, Arman is familiar with the Provide community, allowing him to hit the ground running and bringing with him a wealth of varied experiences to his new position.
Arman graduated from the University of Essex with a degree in Management and Marketing. During this period, he had several work experiences placements, one with Sky and another at Channel 4.
Speaking about his time at Channel 4, where he undertook the role of continuity assistant, he said: “When I was working there, I was given the rare opportunity to do a live voice-over for two shows. I also met the very famous Daniel Kaluuya, and it is one of my career highlights to date.”
Whilst working as a graduate for Provide CIC, Arman was responsible for and the lead in launching the eC-Card Vending Machine project at Essex University. This app allows young people under 25 to confidentially obtain free condoms from pharmacies, improving sexual health outcomes for people in Essex and generating a wealth of data for sexual health service providers in the process.
“The eC-Card Vending Machine project is undoubtedly a standout moment for me. Being able to offer access to sexual health services in a confidential and secure manner is essential. The vending machine provides students with anonymity, convenience, and most of all, allowing them to stay protected.” Arman added.

“We are going through a period of accelerated growth at Provide Digital, and it’s a very exciting time for us as we are soon to launch two new apps, our virtual ward system and our quality-of-life app (ProQoL). We have also been asked to look at the digital pathway for ASD in the mid-Essex area, so we are looking at building a new digital system to facilitate that, and this could be game-changing.”
Arman added: “To be joining the Provide Digital team with so many exciting launches and plans ahead is ideal. The work which the team carries out in the healthcare sector is life-changing, and that’s one of my biggest ambitions, to create an idea that will help society.”
