I have recently completed my placement year at Ridgian Ltd., in Birmingham city centre. Originally I was contracted to stay until the last week of July but in January I was asked if I could stay longer so my contract was extended to the start of September.

My role was as a Business Intelligence Analyst, in this role I had a variety of tasks including database administration, report building, analysis cube building and general support work for clients. I thoroughly enjoyed my job mainly because of the amount of variety the role had in each day.

Towards the end of the year, the company asked whether I was open to doing some part time work while I finished my degree with the view to a permanent role when I did complete my degree. I accepted this offer and now work I day a week while I am at university, my full time contract starts in Jun e 2011, and I am really looking forward to the prospect of a graduate job.
