Consultant at Alfa
at Alfa

What do you actually do on a day-to-day basis?
Day-to-day work varies hugely depending on the client and type of project you are on. But in general terms you will be part of a project team involved in discussing requirements with clients incorporating analysis of their business processes to understand what their business problem is. You also support the development of enhancements to fulfil these requirements and then the testing once enhancements are handed over to the client. Each and every day is different - responsibility is always shared around the project teams.
What are the main positives and negatives to your job?
The people here are great, if you have a question there will always be somebody around to help.
What qualifications and skills are needed to be great at this job?
The induction training you are given when you join CHP gives you everything you need to start your consultant career. When I joined the company, I joined with others from completely different degree disciplines. As long as you fit the basic requirements there are no other real requirements at all.
