    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Most of my days are spent either fixing bugs with a customers solution or implementing new functionality to meet given customer requirements. I use SQL and C# on a daily basis and often work with others from the company to find a solution. I have lots of communication with the customers as they report the issues and give us the requirements.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I have developed in many different ways throughout the year for both technical skills and soft skills. My communication skills have improved for both communication with my team and with customers. Problem-solving has been a key skill that I have developed since joining as I have improved the way that I approach issues.
