What our consultants say
Financial Crime Analyst
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
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.
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.
