/ / What I do at Synechron

Associate Consultant for the Finance and Risk Transformation practice

I am an Associate Consultant for the Finance and Risk Transformation practice. Currently, I am working as a PMO at a KYC department of a big Dutch bank. As a Consultant I am entrusted with ad hoc responsibilities, depending on the actual business needs of the client: not one day is the same! Working on a project basis for different clients is a perfect way to experience different environments and personalities, which is something I truly enjoy. Besides project work, I am also participating in the Sustainable Finance squad within Synechron, which is a booming topic nowadays.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Manage multiple stakeholders and client requests every day.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

Amazing work culture and ample opportunities for growth & learnings

I am passionate about Economics, especially Financial economics. Because it is such a broad subject, it is hard to choose what career you want to pursue. When I was orienting at what sort of company, I wanted to start my career with, I had a small checklist.

  • The working environment and company culture are very important to me. If you can easily get along with your colleagues and have opportunities for team building activities outside of work, then it is a match!
  • As a starter, I wanted an employer that gives me the opportunity to grow and to work on my personal and professional development. Synechron does that. It offers a broad training plan, not only industry related but also with focus on personal development such as social skills training.
  • Last but not least, I want variety in my job. As a management consultant you work at different clients for a relatively short period of time, in that way you get to work with many different companies.

Synechron seemed like a company that checked all my boxes. After working here for over a year now, I can say that Synechron exceeded all my expectations. Synechronites are such amazing and ambitious people, my colleagues are not only my colleagues but also my friends: we work hard, we play hard, together!

/ / My Skills, Qualifications And Experience

Master’s in Business Economics with the specialization in Financial Economics

I have good analytical skills and strong social skills. My qualifications are; a master’s degree in Business Economics with the specialization in Financial Economics at the Erasmus School of Economics in Rotterdam. During my masters I went to Nepal to do Volunteer work as a communications officer at an international company where, among other responsibilities, I was responsible for writing the blogs for the website. Furthermore, I have a Corporate Finance course certificate from the Imperial Business School London as well as various certificates from trainings at Synechron (e.g. ACI financial markets, PRINCE2, Agile). By working for Synechron at the client side, I gained experience in designing a Business Operating Model and in Business Process Modelling.

/ / MY PERSONAL INTERESTS

Sports, Piano and spend time with Family & Friends

In my spare time I love sports, both playing and watching! Fitness, golf, hockey and ping pong are some of my favorite ones to play. Absolutely worth mentioning, I am the female ping pong champion of the Synechron Amsterdam office!

Besides playing sports, I can also really enjoy watching sports (mainly Tennis and Football). Synechron Amsterdam couldn’t be located at a better place than next to the Johan Cruijff Arena: I am a very big Ajax fan.

Furthermore, I like to play the piano, mainly blues improvisation but I also enjoy playing classical music. However, this takes longer considering the fact I cannot read notes. Last but certainly not least, I like spending quality time with friends and family
