My name is Nisha and I am one of the current IAG Tech Graduates. A combination of my interest in the airline industry, my aerospace degree and the rapidly growing technology industry were the key reasons why I chose to work for IAG Tech. Although I hardly have any software/computer science skills, the broad variety of placements offered by IAG Tech allowed me to explore the different areas of the business and will help me figure out the potential route in Tech I would like to take in the future.
Since joining IAG Tech, I have strengthened my communication and analytical skills through leading meetings with key stakeholders, confidently voicing my views and providing constructive feedback on current processes. Shadowing one of the leaders in one of my placements helped me understand the current technological landscape, attend board level meetings, tailor presentations and observe conversation styles.
A key highlight for me was when I was given the opportunity to work on the transformation programme of IAG Tech (outside of my placements), which involved high-level analysis, collaboration with several individuals and board members across the entire organisation and has fast-tracked my understanding of the business.
It is very refreshing to start your career in a company that values transformation, knowledge sharing, agility and empowerment. I have received a lot of support, not just from my immediate team but from all other areas of the business and have been trusted and valued in the organisation. IAG Tech is a place for all graduates, regardless of your degree subject as there is a great learning culture and pathway for all.
