We are delighted to have recently welcomed Zakk to the Allsop team in the role of Business Intelligence Developer.
As a newbie we got him to answer a few questions, to find out a bit more about him:
What is your role at Allsop?
As a Business Intelligence Developer, my role involves transforming, cleansing and visualising datasets to produce reports according to client requirements. These reports are primarily produced in Power BI, and projects often present their own unique challenges in how to use the tool to meet the client requirements.
What made you pursue your chosen career?
Although my degree was in Biology, my first professional role was as a data analyst in a consultancy firm. Working there I became heavily involved in Power BI related projects, as a result of my skill and interest in the area. I find working with Power BI to build solutions for client requirements highly engaging and am keen to continue learning more about it, to allow me to continue developing innovative solutions and products.
What are your first impressions of working at Allsop?
I am thoroughly enjoying working at Allsop so far. Every project has presented such unique challenges, encouraging me to develop and broaden my skill set to meet them, which is the reason I moved here. As well as this, meeting the whole team (albeit virtually) has been great, everyone has been extremely friendly, welcoming and eager to help.
How did you find joining Allsop whilst the team is working remotely?
I found joining Allsop remotely a very smooth transition. As mentioned above, the whole team was extremely welcoming and helpful, and the business made sure to provide everything I might need to create a suitable working environment at home. Allsop has made consistent efforts to provide support where needed, and have proved a brilliant place to work so far.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? And why?
Regeneration, as it would help me stop worrying that every ache and pain is the end of me.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy going to the cinema, museums and art galleries, going to the pub to watch football/drink pints, and gaming.
