  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • The Systems Business Analyst role involves supporting projects that deliver solutions to the rest of the business that aim to improve productivity and efficiency. As this is a project-based role, each day is different but the main responsibilities include communicating and presenting to different stakeholders, requirement gathering, system mapping and design, development of skills in the O365 tools and training activities to develop skills in new technology.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • This placement has offered the perfect opportunity to develop a range of both personal and professional skills including confidence and public speaking skills through opportunities to present to the business, as well as project management experience, helping develop both communication and teamwork. Not only has this placement provided the opportunity to develop these skills but apply them in a real-world environment.

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • At TGB, they fully recognise the potential and fresh ideas students can bring, meaning that even as a student, you are treated and respected like any other member of the team and so the work you contribute is valued as much. However, they do also recognise that this is a new environment to many of us and we are supported through the whole placement.
