What is involved in your current role at Warner Bros.?
For me a typical day at the office begins with me grabbing a cup of coffee and then running a macro (code within Excel VBA) which checks for changes in our international financial forecasts. Usually after this it is my responsibility to investigate these changes further to see what the reason behind them is. The rest of the day varies depending on what is going on in the office at the time or on what ad-hoc tasks my line managers need of me. These tasks can involve me investigating into the success of recent promotions, comparing how different gaming platforms rank against each other, also considering the costs associated with marketing and distributing our titles. When I am not doing specific tasks, I often find myself developing macros to enable us to automate our repetitive excel processes and save time. During busier periods, for example near to the financial month end, there are files that need to be updated to reflect changes from forecasts to actuals amongst other things and it is my role to produce many of these reports.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Within my role I would say that I enjoy the amount of responsibility given to me within my team. It is incredibly rewarding to see the work that you have produced being distributed to managers all around the world.
What’s your favourite WB film/ TV show/ game?
Game - Batman: Arkham City
What’s been a highlight for you so far?
A highlight for me so far whilst working for WB was when I was given the opportunity to go and see ‘The Meg’ at a staff screening the day before it was released in the cinemas. Not only was the film excellent but being given tickets through work to see it was an incredible experience for me!
