Top IT Student Seeks Business Analysis Placement

Top IT student and President of Leeds Beckett University’s student Computing Society, Lewis Ford, is seeking a Business Analysis role for his 12-month placement, due to commence in July.

Lewis has many strings to his bow – he is a member of the Academic Board, Societies Rep on the Student Council, President of the Computing Society, Course Representative and is a Student Union President 2016/17 candidate at University.  He founded both the Leeds Beckett Computing Society and BCS Student Chapter.  Through both initiatives, he has demonstrated a true dedication to improving the employability prospects of his peers.

Lewis is currently studying a BSc in Business Information Technology.  When asked about what he likes best about his course and key successes, Lewis said:

“My degree enables me to combine my technical knowledge and passion for technology with my entrepreneurial mindset.  I am passionate about analysis, using data and my experiences to improve business techniques.   

“I was recently able to improve the profits of a family member’s artisan food business by improving production processes and through the implementation of an e-commerce site, which is currently underway.

“I am incredibly passionate about technology and how it can be used to improve all aspects of our lives.”

In addition to studying for his degree and Society roles, Lewis works as a Freelance IT Consultant, recently delivering projects for the likes of Nutrition2go, Innevate Ltd, and The Music Consortium.
