Hello financial services
This is bitter sweet.
I've accepted a job with Nationwide Building Society as a consultant in their business intelligence unit, which is pretty much a dream job.
My days will now be spent building dashboards and visualisations for the country's largest mutual at their Swindon HQ. It's also a chance to get hands-on with Qlik Sense (an enterprise BI tool) which will complete my experience of the Top 3 tools in Gartner's magic quadrant.
The bitter part is leaving Wood for Trees much sooner than expected.
Building a problem solving culture is never easy, but these guys nail it every day with generosity, hard work and great humour. There are no big egos in the room, just a will to seek answers and help each other achieve.
You literally cannot ask for more.
They're the not-for-profit sector's A Team, and I'm enormously proud to have worked with them. In eight short months they took my data analysis skills to another level.
Thank you team, and wish me luck.
