Below are some examples of the roles people play at 31ten:
Sophie – Sophie joined 31ten with three years’ experience of working in the public sector as a local government officer in a development role. Sophie was keen to use her existing skills in development appraisals to support the delivery of homes, as well as broaden her experience in broader areas of financial modelling. Sophie worked on several projects in her first six months, these included running development appraisals that she was familiar with, as well as supporting the creation of more complex financial models where she could grow her skills. One of the latter models was a multi-phase development model that allowed each plot to be brought forward with different delivery and funding assumptions, providing an overall picture to the local authority client. Sophie learnt about how to selectively use VBA to enhance functionality and ease of model use. Once drafted, Sophie presented the model to the client alongside another member of her team. Following iteration, the model was successfully adopted, and Sophie provides ongoing support to the council in its use. She is increasingly taking responsibility on projects and also taking an online course to grow her VBA skills.
Jai – Jai joined 31ten with five years of experience, first as a local government officer and later working in a planning and development consultancy. Jai initially led a project assessing the viability of funding a new school through residential development, work which he was familiar with. Alongside this project he also worked on two projects where he could grow his skills. The first was a model to track capital projects and their impact on a local authority’s capital and revenue accounts – an area which he had limited experience and was keen to learn more. The second was a project assessing the viability and affordability of a proposal for a local authority to invest in acquiring homes to be let as a range of tenures to meet local housing needs. As Jai grew his understanding of these areas of work he increasingly took the lead on similar new projects, as well as responsibility for managing client relationships.
