I work as part of the Spatial team and it is always evolving. There are many different tasks that are performed ranging from data processing to working on a variety of online services such as Map Search and AP1. It’s important to note that we are using the latest programming technology.
In my role I work towards the processing and release of the latest Spatial and Non-spatial data every month. This makes sure that our clients have the most up to date maps and mapping features available. I collaborate with other departments, in particular Client Services on conveyancing searches that have to be sent to Land Registry using QGIS software or creating cases and plans for our clients.
I find diversity in my work working with other departments too and when I feel like I need to take my mind off a project for a while this helps. The rest of my Graduate role revolves around working in Development and working as part of the agile team implementing changes required by the business.
Why do you like working at tmgroup?
I like working at TM for a number of reasons and it is one of the best work experiences I have had. The people make the business and have a positive attitude towards each other, knowing that if you face difficulties there is always someone there willing to help and guide you regardless of whatever it is that one might be experiencing.
I value working in an environment where people are ready to help at any time and share knowledge is great for picking up new skills much faster as well as feeling more relaxed in the workplace.
For me being able to work on projects which involve mapping is very interesting, as it is something I have always been curious about and wanted to know more. Now I have the opportunity to find out and learn about the processes that take place and be a part of something not many people can say that they have done before. This is a unique role which gives me the opportunity to gain many different skills.
What do I do outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy playing tennis on court, something I have done all my life. Flying is another passion of mine. I am currently undertaking lessons to complete my light aircraft pilot’s license. I have been doing this for a while and it is one of the best things I have undertaken.
