After joining Bistech with a background in insurance, Dot talks to us about her progression and provides top tips for future applicants.
Life before Bistech
In 2004, I made the decision to move to the UK from Poland. I only knew one person in Bournemouth, so it was a huge step for me. Moving to Bournemouth was a massive culture change, but having lived here now for 15 years, I see it as my home.
Working in Commercial Analysis
In 2014, I joined Bistech as an Analyst. I had no experience of working in the technology industry before I started, so it was a complete career change for me.
My role day-to-day involves pricing up solutions for existing and potential customers as well as dealing with both their queries and suppliers queries. It means I work with a variety of different people and collaborate with most departments across the business. No two days are the same as I’m always working on a range of projects.
Five years at Bistech
Working at Bistech has given me a lot of opportunities. From joining a completely new industry and role, through training and experience, I’ve progressed to Senior Commercial Analyst. It means I have more responsibility, including training new starters.
I have so many great memories from working here. We have some really fun social events, which are always a highlight for me.
The culture and close bond we all have makes me proud to work at Bistech.
Advice for future applicants
It can be daunting applying for a role if you don’t necessarily have the relevant experience, but my advice is to just go for it. Bistech are great at seeing potential in people and exploring it, enabling them to become the best at what they do. There’s a real emphasis on training and development, so if you’re willing to learn, you’ll do well!
