Meet the team: Commercial Analyst, Lizzey
Having joined our Commercial team in January 2020, Lizzey explains how Bistech has helped her develop, grow and become an integral part of the business whilst working mainly from home…
Starting a new career
Before Bistech, I completed a financial services apprenticeship which led me to work as an insurance broker for five years. Whilst it had been great for my progression, I was ready for a new challenge. It was a little daunting to leave an industry I knew so well, but the Bistech team was really supportive, enabling me to find my feet and feel more confident after just a few weeks.
Working from home
I had only been at Bistech for a couple of months before we transitioned to remote working. Whilst we only anticipated it being a short-term solution, I’ve actually been working from home for the majority of the time I’ve been here.
I’m really grateful to have a team that has supported me so well. We’ve had many training sessions via Microsoft Teams, and it’s great to know that no question is off limits! It’s been a good learning curve.
“I’m proud of how much I’ve learn and progressed, and I’m excited to see my career develop.”
A day in the life…
Every day is different in the Commercial team – I’m constantly learning something new. My main responsibilities include placing and managing customer orders and liaising with different departments throughout the business to ensure our customers are connected quickly and efficiently. I also work alongside the Finance team invoicing customers, processing purchase invoices and reconciling supplier invoices and statements. There’s always a lot going on!
Working to my strengths
My background in insurance has helped me with certain parts of my role such as understanding terms and conditions and negotiating on those terms. That’s something I’m excited to get more involved in moving forward.
What attracted me to Bistech was the company ethos and emphasis on encouraging employees to progress based on their strengths and interests. I could also see that there was a great team spirit which became evident as soon as I joined. Even though I’ve worked from home for most of my Bistech career so far, I can honestly say I feel I am a truly valued part of the team.
