What are you doing now?
Following graduation I worked at a couple of firms in The City on technical roles, moving from developing new systems to managing teams of developers. We worked to decommission 40 year old mainframes, build brand new reporting platforms, expand product capabilities of mature technology platforms, and build out businesses to brand new markets.
My career has since morphed to now encompass delivering solutions to our Stock Loan and Repo trading desk, managing change in the technology and operational organisations for the bank. I am now a programme lead at Morgan Stanley, managing the delivery of a 4 year project, automating the firm’s global inventory asset distribution. This industry leading collateral management platform will enable to the bank to lower the cost of borrowing, increase access to new markets, and reduce the firm’s risk profile.
