The relationship I have with my manager also positively affects my working environment. The open communication and supportive culture he has emitted, really helps me in the day to day, as I feel I always have support and someone to bounce ideas off, which at this stage in my professional career, is imperative for my confidence and professional development.
A bit about my role…
Describing what a BA does in short summary is quite hard, but I’ll give it a go. I work within a team where we move the company forward, we analyse the current situation, we analyse where the company wants to be and we make that happen. The change could be a result of something meticulous like mandatory legislation, or it could be something as creative as bringing a digital platform into the 21st century. The project or programme may be different, but the way Brit has to react to change remains the same, innovative, in collaboration and with absolute precision.
Some advice for a career in IT/ as a young graduate…
As the above is a bit chapter and verse, I’ve thought of some advice based bullet points:
- Listen to everyone and take in as much as you can.
- Be open to learning.
- It’s ok to be wrong, it’s ok to not understand, Rome wasn’t built in a day and the people around you understand that.
- Sometimes uncomfortable situations are the best for growth.
- In whatever you do, be yourself and be kind to the people around you. A happy team is a high performing team.
