What our consultants say
Financial Crime Analyst at St. James Place Management Services
University of Bradford
I am currently responsible for ensuring the bank is in line with current Anti-Money Laundering procedures through transaction monitoring, threat detection and the analysis of customer data. From reviewing high cash deposits to periodic reviews on politicians, each day brings a new challenge which allows me to adapt my skills to what is required at the time and constantly stay engaged.
Business Intelligence Developer at Drax Power
I really enjoy the variety of projects I get to work on on-site. I am also given the time to focus on my own professional development and take charge of my future. I currently run the PowerBI training at the company for users wanting to use this technology in their roles and it feels great to have this responsibility.
RPA Developer at Capgemini UK
University of Chester
While on-site I have been working on a project for Network Rail with another developer. Straight away I was able to develop, liaise with the SMEs and see a robot in a live system. As this project had three robots but only two developers, I also got to take over responsibility for one of these robots while it was successfully moved into the live system.
