Christina Tuataga

Senior Data Analyst

Office: Dublin

Start Date: June 2012

What attracted you to Fidelity?
The Data Analyst role within the Strategy and Planning Office.

What’s the best thing about being part of Fidelity?
Aside from my role, it’s the culture of the workplace that makes Fidelity a great place to work. Having the option to work from home or the possibility of flexible hours is very important to me. As a parent, these options allow you to give 100% to both your work and home life, which make life just that little bit more satisfying. There is also the learning and fun element to the Fidelity work environment, with the regular social events, discussions by external sources and various internal campaigns. These initiatives provide a motivating energy within the organisation and an all-round experience to the typical day-to-day responsibilities.

What’s most rewarding about your job?
The type of work I do and the variety of work I’m exposed to. Statistics and analysis have always been strengths, so focusing on Data Analytics was a conscious career path of choice. My role within the Strategy and Planning Office extends to other areas ranging from providing support to managers on our time tracking tool, to managing projects such as the Headcount Migration initiative and the Employee Excellence Awards program. I’m also a member of the review board for our innovation campaign. All of these areas give me the diversity I look for in a role (and within a company), making coming into work very fulfilling.

Tell us about your greatest challenge at Fidelity.
My greatest challenge at Fidelity is keeping a clear career path in mind. Fidelity Investments provide plenty of opportunities for employees to develop their career and move into different areas of business, more so than any other organisation I’ve worked in. In my current role, I’m exposed to both Data Analytics and Project Management which I thoroughly enjoy due to the diversity. But, if I was to choose which of the two I prefer to base my career progression, I find it difficult as I enjoy exposure to both.

To be successful at Fidelity you need…
To be a great networker with colleagues throughout the organisation.

How would you describe your colleagues?
I’d describe my immediate work colleagues as being knowledgeable, extremely diligent (a must in our area of work) and supportive. For my colleagues in general, I’d describe them as friendly and ambitious.

Life at Fidelity is…
Always evolving and never boring.

How has Fidelity supported your development?
Initiatives such as the Women’s Networking Group, the mentoring culture and the various other support sessions that run through groups like our wellness programme, Fidelity Life, have all been a great guidance to my professional and personal development. Fidelity Investments encourage progression, enabling me to build relationships across a variety of departments.

In one word how would you describe your Fidelity experience so far?
Positive.

My internship during college. As an intern I was given interesting proofs of concept to work on and great support from the team at all levels.

Leap is a great transition from college to the workplace as you learn about technologies the company uses and how different teams organize their development lifecycle.
