Laura Hannula, Business Analyst
12 month Placement in Wärtsilä Services, Fareham
Graduate Opportunity in Wärtsilä Services, Fareham
As I had already graduated from university and was eager to keep working in business intelligence, I was very delighted and excited to be offered the possibility to continue my career as a Business Analyst after my placement year. While my job title and office location remained the same, there was an increase in responsibilities and I am now taking part in various business development and analytics pilot projects for example.
It is very rewarding and motivating to see that my work has had a positive impact, and I have learned tremendously and met some wonderful people during my time at Wärtsilä. Over time my role has become more proactive and international, where instead of reporting on past performance locally I get to also take part in innovative analytics projects with a more global scope. In addition to focus on data visualization and presenting findings on management dashboards, I for example help my colleagues with the use of our various reporting and sales tools.
Overall, among my favourite things about working for Wärtsilä are the supporting working culture, and the chance to tailor your career based on your interests and strengths. Every day is different, and there are a lot of possibilities to challenge and develop yourself.
