Whilst I was studying, I worked part time at both a bar at the university during the week and a local pub in my home town on weekends. I was also a prominent member of the Mathematics and Statistics Society, arranging study sessions and social events. During my third year at university, I was afforded the opportunity to study at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. Upon arrival in the country, I promptly found myself part time work in the two campus bars, where my time was juggled between the two. I feel that the jobs I had whilst studying at university helped to provide me with an excellent attitude towards work and am often seen as a very hard-working individual with a slight “workaholic” demeanour.
Since graduating, I began work at AQA’s Manchester branch as a temporary general assistant and gained experience in office roles throughout the company. I also developed a low-level understanding of the processes involved in conducting examinations and assessments. Towards the end of my time at AQA, I began to assess the data involved in examination marking through the series, providing daily monitoring reports and assisting my manager in decisions based on my findings. This experience of working closely with confidential data, allowed me to accept a contract working as an Assistant Statistician at the University of Manchester. I was based at Salford Quays and my role involved working very closely medical data and I was able to use my analytical knowledge to deconstruct the data sources and understand them thoroughly. It was here that I developed my understanding of SQL, R and Stata.
I am currently employed by AQA as a Data Analyst and one of my first tasks in this role was to advance the progress monitoring that I had begun the previous summer, creating a much more dynamic and automatic report utilising VBA coding to source the data involved.
