"In my position, I am continuously undertaking new interesting tasks, from documenting weekly and monthly engineer hours to invoice analysis. I work closely with the finance team while also liaising with all heads of departments, making my work vary on a day to day basis. I have direct involvement in improving the businesses performance by presenting analytical reports and presenting them to departments. I also get the opportunity to present in our quarterly meeting my reports and analysis of performance, where I gain great responses from the whole organisation, showing a real interest. Throughout the company I have great relationships with people, which is a key part of my work life as if I was not able to have fun in work I would not see myself working here. I also get the opportunity to mentor interns which is exciting as I am able to get fresh ideas from them while also developing their skill set in a financial environment"
