Migration Analyst - Business Change (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, SCT – 3 July 2014
I have recently finished a contrat at Citi.
The role was rewarding in that I was it allowed me to expand my knowledge of fund accounting using migration tools in order to provide explanations on accounting methodoligy between the client's existing accounting providers and their new provider Citi.
The extremely tight timeframes involved meant working with close co-operation accros a range of teams and support staff.
The most distinct feature of this contact was that the director responsible for the client migration was predominately available in the team throughout and always approachable should other line managers be unavailable or working on other issues.
This was my first role involving out of hours work and night shifts. Having successfully completed this contract and come out the other end I am looking forward to more nornal hours of employment.
Dealing with a variety of enquires, such as card replacements, fraud-related cases, disputed transactions, technical issues with the CitiManager online-tool, requests by Program Administrators for credit limit increases/decreases, card/account closures and balance transfers; card application related enquires, keeping personal data of each cardholder up-to-date, etc.
