I like to think I have a good understanding of our systems so it was great to be nominated for the Know your Stuff category at our first Business Change Oscar awards and to win was even better! LV= put on the night to recognise and thank people across the department for their hard work. In Business Change, we manage changes to LV= systems and as Test Lead, it’s my responsibility to thoroughly test changes in line with business requirements before they’re rolled out. I started out as a Tester six years ago and I’ve progressed my way up. I’ve worked across most of the systems here and picked up a lot of knowledge but still didn’t think I’d win!
You get a lot of recognition from LV= as a company but all the nominations were actually voted for by colleagues so it’s nice to know my teammates appreciate what I do. The awards were held in a hotel with food, drinks and a disco afterwards – it was really good fun. We have a great team so it was nice to all get together and celebrate what’s been achieved over the last year. Personally, I believe it’s down to the people I work with that I have the knowledge I do as since I started they’ve supported me and always been happy to help out. We all treat one another with respect and now I’ve been here a while, it’s nice to be able to advise and guide others when they need it.
