Hello, I Am Will P

My day-to-day job mainly includes pulling data to analyse past trends / predict future trends, and creating dashboards to represent data in an easy-to-consume manner for a range of business needs.

Tell us more about your experience

Creating a dashboard used by hundreds of people across the UK business has been a highlight of my career so far! The dashboard has been showcased globally, and has led to me receiving a leaders-choice award!

The biggest challenge for me is trying to manage my time and the requests that come in that I may not be able to fulfil given higher-priority workloads. 

I have great support from my Manager and my team, as well as a mentor, and an apprentice buddy who is further along their apprenticeship journey.

I decided to do an apprenticeship as I wanted to get a foot in the door at a tech company and do a job that involved maths and logical thinking. And I wanted to do this without having a degree. 

"Doing an apprenticeship is a great way to get started at a company / in a role that might not seem accessible without relative experience or a degree."
