How would you describe a typical day at DBM for you? I’d say no day is ‘typical’... As the Team Leader for the Innovations team, I work with my team to develop the more technical aspects of report automation and interactivity. We play a part in the design, functionality, and overall look and feel of the Excel, PowerPoint and online reports, as this is just as important as what happens in the back-end. Each report we develop is different and I like being able to continuously improve on efficiencies and problem solve for better solutions.
