Describe some of the best aspects of working at Watch Portfolio Management
One of the major advantages to working at Watch Portfolio Management is that everyone works together. They are helpful and friendly, so if you need any advice there’s always someone available to ask.
What have you learned since you started working here?
Since I started working here, I have learned a new development language, as well as new development tools and techniques. I feel like my skills are valued and I am getting a chance to build up my knowledge in computing.
Why did you join Watch Portfolio Management?
I was drawn to work here because the role was similar to what I had done during my year-long placement at university, but the type of industry they are involved in is very different. My placement was centered on analysis and development for a specialist software company serving the public sector in Northern Ireland. Sometimes new graduates aren’t given a full range of tasks, but here, I have the opportunity to be involved in more influential work.
What’s it really like working at Watch Portfolio Management?
I am a recent graduate and have been working at Watch Portfolio Management for just over a month. I graduated from Ulster University after completing a BSc (Hons) in Computing. I also have a Diploma in Professional Practice.
My role is as an Analyst but with my background and experience I have been mainly involved in development. There are different disciplines of Analysis here at Watch Portfolio Management including business intelligence, statistical, operational and management information. In my case then it also stretches into IT development.
An average day for me begins by checking my emails to see if there are any tasks/meetings scheduled for that day. If these tasks are high priority then I will begin them that morning, or at least that day. The rest of the day will then be spent completing tasks or attending meetings. I will then work on projects that are on the IT roadmap which could mean background analytical work to writing code and supporting our in-house developers. As a new starter a lot of my time is spent training and being coached by the current team.
