Lauren Wright talks about her experiences of joining AccessFintech after two roles in banking
Our recent joiner Lauren Wright talks about her experiences of joining AccessFintech after two roles in banking in our employee blog [link]. She has found the start-up environment to be a steep learning curve, but feels that her banking background has helped her understand the daily challenges and inefficiencies teams across financial services are facing.
“I joined Access Fintech in March 2021 as a Financial Products Analyst, supporting the team involved in the design and rollout of new products to support our core infrastructure. I am a recent graduate with a master’s degree in business & finance and my background prior to AFT was in banking operations.
My journey from banking to fintech has been insightful, especially having first-hand experience of the issues that AFT are now creating products and solutions to solve; it has given me an understanding of the true value we are creating here. Working in a start-up environment, the learning curve has been steep, but my first four weeks have been so interesting and much more intense than anything I have experienced in my professional career so far.
Working in both of my previous roles in banking have given me valuable experience and insight that I could bring in to AFT as I understand the daily challenges and inefficiencies teams across the financial services industry are facing. By understanding these issues and recognising the needs to make processes more efficient, I feel that I am contributing real value that can help organisations across the industry. Working as an operations analyst, I was often frustrated at how time-consuming and fragmented some of the processes were – always looking for ways to maximise my time and make things quicker and more efficient for myself and my team. This role will allow me to do that on a much larger scale.
It is amazing to be a part of a company that is growing so quickly and truly revolutionising the finance industry – how organisations work and how they are communicating and collaborating with each other. I had never previously considered a career in fintech, but it has been undoubtedly the best career choice I could have made.”
