"Your job with FD will depend on the client you work for, and there are various different types of jobs that you could be doing on client site. I am currently working on a project for a client in London that involves migrating vendors onto a new system that our client has implemented for invoicing. The project involves a lot of interaction with senior members of staff, weekly reporting on progress and presenting findings. There is quite a bit of responsibility involved in the role as the system is new and both suppliers and internal business users require training on how it works. I've found the project to be interesting so far and feel like I'm learning a lot."
