How did you get started in your career and what drew you to Motability Operations?
The Motability Scholarship Programme provided me with an ideal opportunity to gain experience in the workplace during my years at university; in total I spent two summer breaks with the company and have subsequently joined the organisation as a full time employee.
How has your employer helped you to do well at your workplace?
As an IT student I was keen to join Business Systems and see how the modules I had been studying could be put into practice in the real world. I was placed in London with the Business Analyst team within Business Systems. From the outset I was made very welcome and was encouraged to meet with the individual team members to understand their roles. Before long I was contributing at team meetings and participating in larger meetings around the business. Coming from the classroom environment I found this sense of responsibility incredibly rewarding.
Placements: Business Systems
Although the majority of my time was spent within Business Systems, in each placement I was allocated time to work amongst the other areas of the business to become familiar with the role they play. This exposure to the business was a real eye opener as it outlined the importance of working together and emphasized the mammoth task of running and maintaining such an incredible scheme.
