Meet Jeremy

"One of my main tasks was to simplify and improve monthly reporting processes - work that benefited my team and the business we supported, but also challenged me to further develop my hard skills. My People Leader made a conscious effort to get me involved in work that developed a commercial understanding of the business to drive a financial outcome.”
