In this short article, we’re thrilled to showcase one of our exceptional team members who embodies our core values every day. Meet Mark Lundon, a shining example of what it means to “Be Adaptable, Be Brave, Be Collaborative, Be Determined, and Be Empathetic.” His journey within Beyond Blue is a testament to the power of determination, teamwork, and unwavering dedication. Join us as we dive into his inspiring story of progression and success.

We asked Mark about his time at Beyond Blue, and he explains how he is committed to working hard to develop his career.

“I joined Beyond Blue as a recent graduate of Lancaster University back in 2014 after studying Maths and Politics. After University, I had a brief period in another Data Analyst role in another company, it was then that the advert for the Data Analyst role at Beyond Blue caught my eye and I’ve been here ever since. Over the years I progressed from DA (Data Analyst) to SDA (Senior Data Analyst), to AM (Analytics Manager) and finally into my current role as SAM (Senior Analytics Manager).

My biggest achievement is learning a lot about different methodologies and best practices for survey design and analysis. I’m particularly interested in conjoint, and it’s become a real strength of mine during my time here. These sorts of problem-solving opportunities are a key part of what I enjoy about the role; there’s always new challenges to overcome! I’ve also enjoyed developing my understanding of segmentation; it’s a real art to get them right but it’s extremely rewarding when you find a good solution and the team are happy with them.

I enjoy the flexibility in our working hours, and our team socials, are a great way of bringing the company together especially now we are getting more and more remote workers joining our team.

I’m excited to see what the future will bring as we have a new Analytics Director joining in October, which will hopefully bring a new perspective into the DA team and give me lots more to learn about Data Analytics.”
