Meet the consultant…
Sofia Caputo, Assistant Consultant
1. Please define your role in just a few words
As an Assistant Consultant, it’s my job to support the wider team on all stages of a project and ensure that it’s completed on time and on budget.
I‘m also a key part of the business support team. This involves everything from organising internal events and meetings, to assisting with resource management tasks.
2. What does a day in the life of a consultant look like?
No day is ever the same, but that’s what makes my role exciting and interesting. Some days I’ll find myself fully immersed in project delivery or meeting with clients, and on others, I might be helping our senior resource manager to better understand the team’s capacity.
3. What’s one professional skill you’re currently working on?
I’m currently working towards achieving my Level 4 Association for Project Management (APM) apprenticeship. I’ve got two more exams that I’m studying for. Fingers crossed that I’m able to pass them both first time!
Alongside my APM, I’m also interested in developing my Powerpoint skills, so I can design creative and professional slides for the business to use.
4. What makes Entec Si such a good place to work?
The excitement and passion that people bring to the table is infectious. Everyone is very determined to succeed and know that the key to this is working together as a team.
The friendly atmosphere and strong team spirit make coming to work every day very enjoyable.
5. What is your proudest work-related accomplishment to date?
I joined Entec Si as an apprentice but after gaining plenty of hands-on experience, I was offered a permanent position within the business. This was a very proud achievement for me and one that has enabled me to continue progressing my professional skills within an amazing company.
6. What are you most passionate about outside of work?
Outside of work I adore animals and can’t live without my two dogs! I am also very passionate about dance and have just started taking private lessons in salsa and Argentine tango. Dancing is my escape and a great way to just switch off after a busy day at work.
7. If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take and why?
Very practically, I’d want to take a private jet…if that counts? It would give me a quick route home!
I’d also want all of my animals to come with me as I’d feel very lost without them. Lastly, I’d bring some food to feed both myself and my pets.
