What does a typical working day on client site look like for you?
I’m currently working in Canary Wharf on a financial crime risk management programme for a Tier 1 Retail Bank where I’m leading the customer due diligence workstream, supporting in operating model design and implementation.
A typical working day on client site is busy and stimulating! I would usually aim to get into the office for 08.30am and start by checking overnight emails. I would then have a project check-in with the BCS team to provide a status update on key project deliverables. The rest of my morning would be followed by a series of workshops or conference calls with global and country stakeholders to analyse business activities and support on risk resolution. Lunch would be spent with my BCS colleagues before dedicating the afternoon to a project plan review and production of key project deliverables.
How has your career developed at BCS?
My career at BCS can be characterised by change, variety and development. Since joining, I have been assigned to a great range of interesting projects, each comprised of challenging and fulfilling roles where you are constantly required to think on your feet. I have had the opportunity to see myself grow as a consultant, leading complex workstreams, engaging with senior stakeholders combined with increasing responsibilities. I have significantly expanded my industry knowledge and have become a subject matter expert in areas such as financial crime risk management and operating model analysis.
BCS has also given me the opportunity to complete numerous qualifications such as the CISI Investment Operations Certificate and Prince 2 training course.
