A brief overview of my role and what it involves on a day to day basis would be: a lot of individual calculations and a lot of data manipulation in excel. I regularly carry out report updates and slides updates. There are also a number of ad-hoc tasks which I perform

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

8/10

I feel very well supported by my training provider with regard to my qualifications. I have regular catch ups with my advisor, I attend online tutorials and the tutor is readily available to answer any questions at any time of day. The material is very well structured also which is great

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

1/10

The material I am studying has absolutely zero bearing on the type of work I am carrying out, however I am fully aware that this is simply because they have to build up my basic level of mathematics so that I can then start to apply the more difficult techniques later.

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

10/10

We have a very active social scene in my scene in my office. We will go out regularly for drinks as well as going for activities such as escape rooms, virtual golf or go-karting. We also have a 5 a side football team which plays in a league on a weekly basis
