Emily Palliser, Analyst Programmer

“Sword Apak is a company that tries very hard to make sure that their employees are appreciated. I’m looking forward to continue learning and improving my programming skills as well as developing my career.”

I graduated from Aberystwyth University with a degree in Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence. I knew I wanted to get a job in programming so I could make use of the things I learnt in my degree. The role at Sword Apak offered exactly that; I could utilize my JAVA skills, develop them and learn new languages and new technologies.

What I found most appealing about Sword Apak was the fact that there were plenty of opportunities to progress within the company, something very captivating to someone who was about to graduate. I was also told that there was potential to move around the departments if I wanted to try different aspects of the business; it was nice knowing that the flexibility was there if I wanted it and that there were possibilities for career expansion.

I really liked how approachable the staff were when I came for my interview and this has remained true over my time here; everyone is very friendly and you are always welcome to ask for help when you need it. There are a number of company events throughout the year which gives plenty of opportunity to meet everyone and get to know them outside the working environment.

I really liked getting the opportunity to be part of a new product line going live with its first customer and helping to support that. It was a great feeling knowing that something you had been working on was now being used in the daily running of a business.

So far, I have felt that Sword Apak is a company that tries very hard to make sure that their employees are appreciated. I’m looking forward to continue learning and improving my programming skills as well as developing my career.
