Chris - Operations

 

Being employed by Experian has provided me with an exceptional depth of knowledge and wealth of experience that has developed me both personally and in my working career.  I have been on a job rotation around my business area which has provided me with an opportunity to learn and develop customer service skills such as objection handling and influencing skills... my second rotation has enabled me to build up a vast amount of technical skills dealing with Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access and Visual Basic for Applications.

This course really stood out from the crowd for me purely because of the employment prospects attached to it. As a student looking to start my career choosing the right degree was going to be key to setting the correct platform to springboard my career from.

When I saw this degree it was unique... you can build up the relevant knowledge and gain a full degree qualification, but to reinforce this I am going to be able to gain 3 years worth of invaluable knowledge and experience from working within Experian.

Rebecca - Credit Services

  

Initially, I had a gap year after my A levels as I did not want to go to University due to wanting to get into work.  However, the job market was challenging so I looked to University to gain better career prospects.  I chose to enrol at Nottingham Trent University to do a Business degree as I wanted to study locally and Nottingham Trent had a variety of Business courses to choose from.  The opportunity to work and gain qualifications was exactly what I wanted.

 

I have the support of peers, colleagues and management with my University work, in addition to gaining experience and development, receiving a salary and having a FTSE 100 company on my CV.

 

I am given responsibility to complete important tasks such as reporting, managing documents for forecasting finances and web page building for new products.  Being pushed out of my comfort zone has hugely increased my confidence.  The people I have met at Experian are extremely helpful and offer a wealth of knowledge and advice.
