As a business analyst, my role was to communicate user requirements to developers, as well as market research and analysis for new and upcoming features. UX design for new features was also a large part of the role. Analysis of the product’s usage and how to further develop and increase how it’s used. Communicating with stakeholders on a regular basis.
I learnt how to use PowerBI to maximise and automate the way analytics are delivered ro users. Design software Figma was also used on a regular basis. Other Skills: analytical thinking, communication, product design, writing user stories and refining requirements, project management
Yes, the team and my manager gave me the opportunity to take care of new features for the product from end to end
FIL provided great support throughout the placement. HR, senior management, the team and my manager were extremely helpful and were keen to listen to any ideas that I may have and wanted to help in developing them.
Very comfortable and friendly, welcoming atmosphere, everyone is very encouraging and they take time to help interns and other employees in any way they are able to.
My placement has been immeasurably useful in developing my personal career goals and soft skills which would help me in the future. I enjoyed it thoroughly, although working from home did impact my experience quite a bit.
To anyone applying to FIL, be yourself! be vocal about any questions you may have and any opinions/thoughts/ideas that you come up with - FIL provides a space to discover them in deeper detail which could highly benefit you
