Why did you join AlphaSights?
I was looking for a role in which I could continue developing the analytical and problem-solving skills I learnt at university while also allowing me to contribute to the growth and success of the firm. The industry AlphaSights operates in is unique, and the amazing people I met during the interview process were the icing on the cake!  

Tell me about your position at AlphaSights.
As an analyst in the product & strategy team, I use data analytics to help drive strategic decision-making. I work both with my team in London as well as colleagues globally to analyze complex data, draw insights and assist in forming strategic solutions which contribute to AlphaSights’ growth and improvement.

What is your greatest success so far?
My greatest professional success has been the amount I’ve learnt over the last year and a half, in particular learning how a business operates and hard-skills including advanced Excel and SQL.

What makes AlphaSights unique?
The most unique thing about AlphaSights is definitely the people. Everyone at the company is not only hard-working and dedicated to success, but are also some of the kindest people I’ve met, just as concerned about my growth and development as they are about themselves. I’ve never worked for a company that cares about its employees as much as AlphaSights does.

What are you passionate about?
In general, I am passionate about learning new things. I’m always looking to expand my skill set, whether that’s at work, learning a new language or trying to improve my swimming techniques. Additionally, I love to travel, with historical cities being my main places of interest, or relax at home watching an F1 race or a nice Star Wars movie.
