Work Experience / Projects

Credit & Risk Operations Analyst, Next (Remote):

September 2021- Sept 2022

  • Communication: Liaised with the business development team to successfully recreate and import live files into a standardised historical finance table in SQL. Effective communication will be crucial when developing a rapport with stakeholders and ensuring key professionals are aligned on project goals.
  • Efficiency: Automated Excel reports by connecting them to a SQL database and linking formulas to a date cell to flag any areas of concern, including: spikes in the volume of breathing space letters and conditional formatting to mark any substantial variances in default movements. These actions increased company productivity and resource allocation, reducing operational costs.
  • Problem-Solving: Dexterously identified 30 credit accounts with foreign addresses in a previously unstandardised dataset using SQL code which were then reviewed and flagged appropriately.

Assistant Researcher, The Environment Agency (Oxford):

July 2019- August 2019

  • Active Listener and Collaborator: Forged positive and strong relationships with all ten of her work colleagues through listening to their concerns and instructions. As a result, the whole team worked in unison to successfully complete the Environmental Report without missing any crucial information.
  • Data analysis and Report Writing: Collected and analysed environmental data in Excel to establish the pollution level in Oxford’s waterways, reporting the results to internal and external stakeholders. Since great decisions are often data-driven, this analytical skill will ensure the continuation of insightful analysis that surpasses both clients’ and stakeholders’ expectations.
