In 2009, I moved to the UK from Vodafone Romania, to work as a Reporting Analyst for the EMEA Region. Then, in 2012, I was approached to join the newly established Management Information function. A few years later, I was promoted into a management position, acting as a Business Partner for ExCo stakeholders.
Presently, I run a portfolio of dashboards delivering standard digital online reporting, better visualisation and up to date information to help Vodafone Group make key business decisions. The best part about working with data is seeing the impact it can have in an organisation. Data can be powerfully objective when properly and thoroughly analysed, and seeing how this leads to meaningful change is extremely rewarding for me.
There are many online resources we can access at Vodafone, from soft skills to technical skills. Currently, I am working through the Leading SAFe certification, learning the importance of mastering Business Agility in order to thrive in this digital age. I’m using the insights gained to lead a Lean-Agile enterprise.
However, it’s the people at Vodafone who are the best part. I have had amazing mentors here over the years, people who taught me how to better manage my time and how to make the best decisions in challenging circumstances. We create and innovate at a fast pace in this organisation and it is especially enjoyable to do this alongside such a fantastic group of colleagues.
