1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I am a software engineer whose job can vary depending on your project role. Currently I do data quality analysis. This basically is taking in a database from the company and running sql queries to work out what useful information is there for the company to use. I then every week report to my project head and do a presentation on my findings. Soon I will be using python to generate an automated report builder for all these databases which will be very interesting. There are lots of side projects you can involved with too as I am also helping to build an apprentice internal webpage that will help with organizing the life of an apprentice within capgemini.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have improved my technological skills by learning Java, PHP, SQL, Python and more. The possibilities are endless. I have taken courses on Qlik, SQL and some Microsoft certified courses too. My presentation skills have vastly improved in such a short time. I have learnt how to keep organised and keep to strict deadlines.

This programme has been very enjoyable so far. The work has been very interesting and keeps you on your toes. The team I have been working with have been very welcoming and have done nothing but help ,e throughout this process.
