Burton's X Ilse

What do you do at Burton's? 
I am Ilse and I'm part of the Systems Development Team, which means I get to create great tools to help everyone across the business to work more efficiently.

A typical day involves being there for the business. I make sure they have the right tools and the right information available to make good decisions for Burton's, while making new applications for the future.

5 and a half years I started off in Commercial Finance as a pricing analyst, but was given the opportunity by Burton's to move to Information Systems to follow my interests.

Why do you love working at Burton's?
Burton's is a fast paced business where every employee matters. It's great to have a feeling of responsibility and to be able to make a real difference. And our biscuits are delicious.

What is your favourite part of your role?
The feeling of making a truly great application which you know will help the business focus on what we do best... bake delicious biscuits.

How has Burton's supported you and your development?
Not only has Burton's supported me in making the move from Finance to Information Systems, they have also provided a lot of support for personal development including how to create my own brand, how to put forward ideas & lead projects and how to deliver great presentations.
