I started in Product Development as a graduate and was afforded multiple opportunities within my role. In this role, I’ve received so much exposure and in-depth knowledge about the business.
I was also privileged enough to be sent on the NCBA (National Certificate in Business Analysis) Course which I recently graduated from.
Since then, I’ve moved from Product Development and I am now a Decisioning Analyst in the Loans Technology space where the endless exposure and growth has continued.
As I continue to grow my career I look forward to experiencing even more great opportunities and progression within DirectAxis.
