Orbium is my first job since finishing university, and I can honestly say I've achieved more in this first year of professional life than I could ever have imagined.

When I applied for the job at Orbium, I was instantly drawn to the balance of IT and business - with the possibility of travel a real bonus. After a year, I’m glad to say that I've travelled plenty: on my first day, I went to a project in Casablanca and since then I've worked in both Luxembourg and London.

Besides the travel, I also appreciate my job for the variety. On my first assignment, I was working on interfaces, building networks and message structures for communicating trades (like SWIFT). It was a pure technical role and a good introduction to the job. In my latest project in London, I’ve been working in a more business-based area: Security Transfers and Settlement (with a splash of Object Modelling). I can see the technical work I did on the last project being applied to business areas, and I also get to liaise with the client, listening to their requirements so I can design and finally build the product.

But, what I like best of all about Orbium is the people. Whenever you need help or information, there is always someone around to help. Plus, everyone is so friendly outside work, which makes being in and out of the office just as enjoyable. It also means you can buy a drink for anyone who's helped you out in the day!
