Lucy Worrall

Global Professional Services – Associate Consultant

BNY Mellon

I joined BNY Mellon via the Technology Graduate Program (SETUP) in August 2021 after graduating from the University of Manchester with a Master’s in Physics. I work in Global Professional Services as an Associate Consultant and am based out of the London office.

My team offer Data Management, Accounting and Performance products to clients. My role as an Associate consultant is to understand clients' problems and advise the best solutions. The role also involves the implementation of these products on client systems. Associate consultants help the team with implementations by testing, writing documentation, amongst other tasks. I appreciate how early my team gave me real responsibilities as I have learnt much quicker and feel like a valued member of the team.

My team have a virtual Education Services Center where employees can access any relevant material to bring them up to speed with specific topics. Members of my team have also been very keen to host knowledge transfer sessions to teach their areas of expertise. BNY Mellon are also facilitating me taking the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level 1 Exam, allowing me to gain valuable business knowledge which my degree did not provide.

How BNY Mellon stands out from other companies is its unique culture. The open and friendly culture BNY Mellon is not hierarchical, meaning you get much more exposure to senior leadership than you would elsewhere. In my experience, you can simply walk up to a colleague, however senior they may be and they’ll be willing to take time to talk to you.

Outside of my role, BNY Mellon offer great Employee Resource Groups. I am an active member of the Sustainability Ambassadors. What I enjoy most about this initiative is the freedom you have to make a real change. The Sustainability Ambassadors also allows you to take on leadership roles in initiatives you feel passionate about, I am currently co-leading an initiative to reduce our carbon footprint through food.
