January 2015: Safi Secures An ICT Business Analyst Role With The NHS

NHS LogoGood afternoon Keji

Safi here

Yes … It’s another success story thank God, I have been offered a role as an ICT Business Analyst with Public Health England(NHS).
.
Believe me all the practical experience  gained on DBT, working on projects like HMC2, TAMF,  both nominated for the innovation awards, Project 24, Wellness Media and Pacific Rim , where I had my first taste of QA, alongside Kay Akinwande, put me in good stead when it came to the interview.
I remember being so ill  just before the interview but went in there and didn’t feel  flustered because I had done the work and could speak from a position of strength and even though I had a very very embarrassing coughing fit on the day! I got a call from the Lead BA on Christmas asking if a new job was on my Christmas wish list, as I had impressed them at my interview! It was the best Christmas present ever and a testimony to God to round off 2014.

I finished my training on Feb 7  and got my hands dirty n the Event horizons iOS testing phase on Saturday, little did I know that I would end up as QA Lead and Deputy Technical Business Analyst on the second phase, HMC 2. I was also the Deputy Checkpoint lead on Project 24(phase 1) and the status report lead on CI Legacy.
I purposed to get involved in projects and contribute to business cases, researching on various marketing strategies, contributing to and anchoring Raids meetings.
I was cautious not to take  on any lead roles initially as I felt I would only do so if I knew I could put in a110%

I have had so much support and encouragement from members of my initial training group “DBT2”, especially Akinola Odedina, who is now a mentor, Obinna  Okoye who is also in a contract and gave me that final push to get out there.

And above all a big thank you to the HMC 2 Team, We had two fantastic and supportive Project Managers Adil Choudhury and Fola Onaeko, we worked tirelessly on the application together, and have been a support for each other too. I can honestly say we have become like family, love you all,  the management team for the invaluable sessions and Olyne especially for all those technical tutorials on Jira and Confluence, a woman after my own heart and a fellow teacher.

And last but most certainly not the least Keji a big thank you, a true giver… Your bountiful rewards await you.
A big thank you all round

Safi Olomu.
