Sharvari Barsode

Statistical Analyst

Sharvari works as a Statistical Analyst within the 1ST CENTRAL Motor team in Haywards Heath.

Current role

I currently work in Motor Analysis as a Level 2 Statistical Analyst and I'm responsible for analysing data from aggregators. This data is then used as part of the internal model that calculates the best premium we can offer our customers. I also validate how well the model predicts our actual results.

How long have you been working at 1ST CENTRAL?

I started in 2013.

Tell us about your career path here at 1ST CENTRAL.

I joined the company as a Graduate Analyst after finishing my Masters in Actuarial Management from Cass Business School, London. Since starting at 1ST CENTRAL I've steadily progressed to become an Analyst and now a Level 2 Analyst. I've had great team support throughout my time here and have enjoyed the challenges I face with my role. I also took advantage of swithcing teams internally which has given me even more opportunities to learn and develop my skills and understanding.

What do you love about your current role?

I really enjoy learning about and using the variety of interesting modelling software that 1ST CENTRAL use.

What’s the best thing about 1ST CENTRAL as a company?

I like the way the company organises different activities throughout the year providing a good combination of work and fun.

What did you want to be as a kid?

A (Bollywood) actress. Needless to say, my career path has taken me in a rather different direction!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Watching stuff on Netflix! It never seems to disappoint.

Who would play you in the movie about your life?

No one better than me playing myself. That way I'd get to fulfil my childhood dream of being an actress.
