In light of International Women’s Day we thought we would find out a little bit more about just one of the amazing women that work within the Delio team. Sarah is a certified Business Analyst who joined Delio in April 2018. She has worked across a range of technology, project and data driven roles.
‘I graduated in Accounting and Finance with Business IT in 2013, however, I still didn’t know what I wanted to do. I found myself an administration job in Facilities whilst I spent time looking for the right role. I soon found a Graduate Scheme at a local Financial Services firm - an industry I didn’t know much about. Over 2 years, I rotated through 4 departments, spending 6 months in each department, to learn about the business from different perspectives.
I realised pretty quickly that I had found my calling in FinTech: utilising business technology to meet the needs of the financial sector.
After finishing my scheme and establishing a role within a technical department, I was ready for a new challenge in a different environment. I wanted something that could expose me to more areas of a business and allow visibility of the value I can add to businesses. FinTech is rapidly expanding in Cardiff which was a great opportunity for me. I was recommended to Delio and initially came in for a chat with the CEO, this was closely followed by an interview with the Head of Delivery and the rest is history!
I have been with Delio for nearly a year now (which has flown by!). My days are always challenging, wearing 'many different hats' (as they say) to ensure the company is as successful as possible. I may be writing requirements, managing projects and releases or travelling abroad to conduct training sessions for our new clients! Every day is exciting, challenging and different, I love it!’
