We asked Consultant Aflal Asker why he chose to join Credera to further his technical career.
What attracted you to Credera?
During my final year at University, I decided to work at a consultancy firm after graduation and started shortlisting the organisations that I found attractive. Out of the few consultancies I shortlisted, Credera stood out the most. There were many positive reviews shared by former Credera consultants and all the information presented on their website made it seem like the sort of place I would enjoy working. By the time my last interview with the firm was over, I was really keen and excited to start my career at Credera.
What’s an average day at Credera for you?
There is nothing like an average day at Credera. Every day is filled with exciting challenges, with client work always taking priority. Typically, a day at Credera involves a variety of activities such as meetings, presentations, communicating with client stakeholders, personal training, and internal events.
What’s your favourite thing about working for Credera?
The people. Everyone at Credera is very friendly, intelligent, and enthusiastic about technology and the work they do.
What’s your favourite benefit that we offer?
There are two benefits that I enjoy the most out of the many offered by Credera: the training and personal devices budget. Personally, I have spent my training budget towards purchasing professional training resources and covering the cost of my certifications, and the personal devices budget towards a laptop, phone and a headset.
How has Credera helped you grow in your professional career?
I am assigned to an Appraiser who is far more experienced than me. He has provided me with valuable advice and guidance, allowing me to make wiser decisions and progress quickly within the firm.
Credera has also shown an active interest in allowing me to work on client projects that align with my objectives. This allows me to accelerate my learning and achieve my objectives.
This, paired with all the valuable conversations with my colleagues and all the training and certifications opportunities, has boosted my learning and empowered me to build my professional career.
How does Credera motivate you to give your best?
I have always been a motivated person but having interesting projects and energetic peers around does help keep momentum. The projects that I have worked on so far have been remarkably interesting and intellectually challenging.
In addition, working on projects with my colleagues is an enjoyable experience; they are enthusiastic about technology, they help and support each other, and they bring out the best in one another.
Credera also actively recognises and awards people for their amazing work in the monthly meetings. How could all this not be motivating?
