I am currently working in the Newcastle Service Delivery Centre. My daily role changes with their being a vast range of projects going on at the same time including; Cyber Security, Anti-Money Laundering, Suitability and Remediation. When I am not at work I am at university.

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


I have learned a vast range of skills from communication, time management, how to manage clients expectation as well as IT skills. This has been helped by being able to apply the knowledge learned at university into the workplace, which I believe is making me a better employee.

I really enjoy my programme. The lectures are diverse and applicable to work. The support we receive is phenomenal and the independence to book our own study days to suit are needs has helped relieve a lot of initial stress, and helped me gain a healthy work/life balance.
