I started with Doris in July 2017 after struggling to find a career that suited me after University. Having spent the prior 18 months in recruitment I felt unchallenged and unfulfilled. Doris has offered me the opportunity to build on the business and soft skills I had gained through my previous roles whilst developing my technical understanding.
My current assignment is with Halfords as a Commercial Analyst. The primary focus of this position is the management of IT suppliers, contracts and spend. This is a diverse role where I’m involved in identifying areas for costs savings and defining the commercial strategy, renewing existing contracts and negotiating new contract and working with the wider business to ensure the services provided meet customer expectations.
Doris has given me the opportunity to gain experience within one of the Uk’s leading retailers whilst building a range of skills for the future. I have completed my ITIL foundation and the Doris mentors have outlined a personal development plan and provide me with the support needed to fulfil my potential.
Outside of work I enjoy weight training and boxing. The majority of my free time is spent taking my two dogs on 3 walks a day!
