I have been working with Excel for over 15 years and VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) in conjunction with Excel and Office for around 10 years and I take a huge amount of pride in the solutions I deliver. My 4 key factors when completing work are - 1 - An efficient final product - If a product is memory hungry or takes an hour to run it's not been built correctly. 2 - A quick delivery ensuring deadlines are met - If I miss a deadline, you miss a deadline which means I have let you down and I don't like doing this! 3 - A product that does what is required - I can give you exactly what you need within the confines of the applications functionality. If you don't get what you asked for I probably don't get paid. 4 - The Grandma Test - If my grandma can't use the product then it needs reworking until she can! I believe that detail is a worthwhile investment at the outset. I will work with you to tease out your specific requirements, enabling me to change the end result from good to great and give you something truly value added. My current role with a large high street bank in the UK has enabled me to deliver projects that have helped inform major decision making within the business. A few examples of the projects I have delivered with my current employer are - 1) Reporting on over 40,000 colleagues within 3 brands each containing 3 channels. Detailed reports on historical FTE/headcount movement with forecasted future movements. 2) User Form driven Excel tools allowing the user to log future colleague movements resulting in detailed area and role reporting and the ability to macro manage FTE/headcount within an area and role population. 3) FTE/headcount tracker reporting on exceptions where forecasted movements do not take place and also where movement has taken place with no notification 4) Detailed role by brand and channel analysis 5) A monthly and weekly reporting process fully automated, significantly reducing the resource required to produce timely reporting I also have experience in accounting/bookkeeping from previous roles I have had as company accountant. In addition to the above I try my best to ensure all work is future-proof and fully documented where necessary.
