“After graduating with an Undergraduate and Master’s degree in History at Queen’s University Belfast, I began my first professional career at PricewaterhouseCoopers as a graduate associate specialising in Financial Crime. The transferable skills of my History degree have enhanced my skills in subject analysis, document review and the ability to identify complex trends and patterns within society, which has been an extremely important asset to me as an analyst.”
