I would like to tell you all about my experience at Dynamo so far, working as a Graduate Actuarial Analyst. To be honest, I did not realise what an amazing opportunity it was at the time that I applied for the position and even when I accepted the job offer. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the company and there are a few things that I can highlight about my Dynamo experience:
1. We are people-orientated
From my first interview last year, I could tell that there was something special about Dynamo’s culture. I could sense that people had a mutual respect for one another and they were also able to laugh and have fun together. Since starting work, I can definitely say that the company places a high value on its people. And also that the people who are working at Dynamo support others to shine.
2. Great opportunity for growth
Because of our size and diverse client base, I have been able to gain a wide range of exposure early on in my career. In my first year of work, I’ve worked on projects with some of our directors, been able to engage directly with clients and also take initiative in building financial models for clients. Dynamo also provides excellent support in terms of development through further studies.
3. Technology is central to our work
As someone who only had a basic knowledge of computers and programming, I’ve learnt a lot over the past year around cloud computing, programming and how models can be optimised through using technology efficiently. It is very exciting to be part of a company where technological solutions are central, as I know the skills and knowledge are not only relevant today, but future oriented.
4. International company
We have offices in multiple countries, yet we are one team. I’ve enjoyed the experience of engaging with our teams in other countries. Even from Australia, I get to work with those in the UK, South Africa, France and Norway. It has been a great opportunity to gain exposure to other financial markets, cultures, and regulatory environments.
5. A constant desire to grow and improve
Being part of a company that is continually moving forward, means fast pace, opportunity and constant learning. There are regular conversations in the office around future developments, how current operations can be improved, how new clients can be won and my contribution to that discussion is both sought and wanted.
In conclusion, if you want to be part of a team that is at the forefront of providing technological solutions and that is going places, you’ll be coming to the right place!
