Luis

FT.com Project Analyst | London

How did you end up at the FT?
I started working as an admin contractor for the FT’s catering company. Once my contract came to an end, The 125 offered me an opportunity to join their team. After that, I moved into various advertising, technology and product roles and became a project analyst for FT.com.

What does a typical day in your role look like?
Due to the complexity of my role, I don’t have a ‘typical day’. I start my mornings by reading emails, but then my day is full of reporting, queries and meeting key stakeholders. My schedule varies, but I always take each day as an opportunity to learn new things.

If you had to describe the FT culture in three words, what would they be?
Exciting, quality and enlightening.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Volleyball! I play volleyball in my spare time - it’s one of my biggest passions.

What project are you most proud of?
Working at the FT for almost four years has given me the chance to get involved in so many different projects. The most exciting project, and the one I’m most proud of, is when I helped organise an event for Kofi Annan. This was something that was extremely complex and a great chance to meet such an inspiring personality.
