I enjoy the interaction with many people from different teams. I help to manage and improve the accuracy of all global client data in salesforce systems to help the sales teams manage their relationships with their clients.
One of the aspects I found challenging was getting used to the systems I use and understanding the capabilities of them. Also understanding the new terminology was challenging.
After my A-Levels, I went travelling for 6 months. When I returned I started working in property for a property developing company for 2 years and whilst I was doing that, I started to get an interest in finance. I then got a work placement at an asset management firm and then also a temporary role for 4 months. Whilst I was doing this I found out about the Investment20/20 scheme and started applying to the roles that were advertised on the website.
I would like to complete the IMC and start working towards the CFA qualifications. I would also like to work more within the investment side of the business.
It has been a great introduction to working in the financial services industry. Coming into work with a smile on my face and learning new things every day has kept me motivated and eager to learn more.
