Personal statement

I love the opportunities presented to me where I am able to support people to understand what the numbers actually mean! Analysis of the numbers is an important part of my role, and I enjoy delving into the finer detail. Continually finding ways to further develop my skills is a priority, and I regularly take part in professional development opportunities alongside this.
