It’s hard to believe our 1st employee Robyn Rooschuz, Digital Information Specialist, marks her one year anniversary at Digital Guerrilla, so we asked her to tell us about her 1st year.
One year at Digital Guerrilla today and what an incredible year it has been; with fantastic clients, exciting opportunities and loads of personal growth.
When I joined Digital Guerrilla, I was looking for a new challenge, more varied projects, flexibility, and a better work-life balance. That’s exactly what I got. What I didn’t expect was just how much I would get to learn through mentoring and training and just how many doors would open for my career.
I have had the pleasure to work with new and existing Digital Guerrilla clients, providing the role of Information Manager both client side and project side. I have been able to work with Appointing Parties to develop their EIRs, using both the ‘traditional’ version and using Scottish Futures Trust’s Standard Information Management Plan; as well as working with the project team to assist them in understanding their requirements and meet their deliverables through validation, guidance, and training. I have provided support to our clients with their BIM implementation journeys, providing BIM awareness training, working together on their BIM templates and guidance documents and providing training for Revit Structures (my first love).
My career has gone from strength to strength with incredible opportunities, such as fulfilling some long-term career goals to work as a BIM Auditor, which i was able to do as with as a consultant with BRE for their business and individual clients, working with Solibri to be able to provide Solibri training for our clients who wish to develop their validation capabilities and even getting to work with BSi to review their BIM Training material and write questions for their exams. I have achieved individual BRE Accreditation as a Project Information Manager (PIM) and a Task Information Manager (TIM) and plan on working more on my formal development moving forward. Having more balanced hours, as Digital Guerrilla is a 4 day week employer, have allowed me to get involved in other aspects of the industry I have an interest in, such as being part of the core team for Women in BIM Scotland – working to support women in the industry.
All in all, it has been an amazing journey so far which I am so grateful for, and I am looking forward to the year ahead where I will be speaking at BIM Coordinators Summit 2022 on COBie and at Women in BIM on Information Management in September, plus a visit to New Orleans for my very first Autodesk University!
Our founder and Digital Director, Graham H Stewart said ” it’s has been great having Robyn onboard over the past year developing new strategies to help us secure new work and open up new opportunities and we are very much looking forward to growing the business with Robyn over the coming years”.
