Project Manager
Credit Suisse

I have held a number of roles in my 10 years at Credit Suisse. My background is within Data and Project Management.
I am currently working on the Banks strategy for Brexit.

My first job after graduation, due to the fact it was a big organisation and working within the industry was all very new to anything I had experienced before. I had a team that were all relatively new to the industry which helped me in integrating.

I have been working in the Banking industry since I graduated for approx 16 years.  I have worked in multiple organization with my longest stint being at Credit Suisse.  I am currently working on the Brexit programme and am a Project manager.  My interests outside of work stem around fitness and music.  I like climbing mountains and keeping fit.  Given the pressurized environment I work in, I turn to music as a form of meditation.  It’s important to try and strike a balance from an early stage in your career.

More about me

Strong Communication skills
Team player
Presentation skills
Forming strong relationships
Being structured

Through experience, by talking to peer group, by asking certain people to be my mentor. I also find going for coffees with select people that you may want to know more about.
By going on courses. By setting out your own path – only you are responsible for this, not your manager not your family/friends. Take lead of your objectives.

I wanted to be a Lawyer when I was at school.

I would network from an early age where possible. I would exhaust my research in terms of understanding what jobs existed and also tried to understand what I enjoyed. Having said this – things can change and what you may like at 18 could change by the time you’re 22. You don’t need to know what you want to do – go with subjects you enjoy.
