When did you join Expleo?
How was your first day at Expleo?
My first day was great. I was given plenty of onboarding tasks and got stuck in. I spent time understanding the company ethos and the organisational structure. My team were very welcoming which made me feel comfortable.
What’s a typical day in the life of a Cyber Project Manager like?
I have a range of projects under my belt. I start the day by checking all my emails and then I start with any administrative tasks on my list. Each morning the capability leads meet with their teams to discuss the day ahead and I float between the different meetings to stay informed and maintain a sense of community when working remotely. The rest of the day is usually a selection of meetings and other general management and business development tasks to keep me busy.
What about Expleo do you enjoy the most?
I really enjoy working for such a large organisation and being part of the bigger picture. There is so much going on and we are always updated with new initiatives and other exciting events or global changes.
What do you like most about your job?
I love Project Management because I like being organised and I love working with people. It’s challenging, but that gives me a sense of pride that I have achieved something every day.
How did Expleo help you grow your career?
Expleo provided me with a platform to elevate my career. I came from a SASS background so moving into Cyber was a change, but I love learning and it has provided me with such a great opportunity to expand my skill set and gain confidence in working in a new industry.
Do you think Expleo is a great place to work and if so why?
Yes, Expleo is a great place to work. It places importance on training and development and provides lots of opportunities to learn and grow as a person.
Can you summarise what the Expleo’ Employer Brand pillars mean to you?
- Autonomy & Support
A high level of trust is given to employees. On my team we’re all capable seniors who can carry out our duties with little input, but we also understand that management is always there to offer support if required.
- Local & International
In Bristol there is a great selection of people, and it’s nice to engage with friendly faces in the office. However, my team is across the UK, and we regularly engage with Cyber teams in France, Germany and many other countries.
- Expertise & Creativity
Expleo requires us to think outside the box, use our intuition, expand our horizons and share ideas.
- Performance & Responsibility
With an ever-expanding company, it’s important to know where your efforts will be best placed. Yearly KPIs and regular check ins with department heads can help keep you focused, drive performance and help you exceed in all areas.
What advice would you give to other business analysts considering applying to Expleo?
Go for it. Project management at Expleo is varied and exciting. There’s always something new to do and every day is different. I would recommend joining Expleo.
