How are you finding things so far?
Super- the team have been so welcoming and helpful! I’m really getting to grips with the fantastic clients I’m looking after across a variety of sectors.
Were there any unexpected surprises?
I must admit, Charlie the dog was the biggest surprise when he sneaked under my desk and stroked my leg on my second day- I had no idea there was an office dog, but as an animal lover, I’m very pleased there is!
What’s something we wouldn’t know about you from your CV?
Since buying my first house last year, I’ve become slightly addicted to DIY and gardening.
What job would you be really bad at?
Artist… I can’t draw to save my life. The teachers at school literally used to laugh at my attempts at horses, fruit and self-portraits.
Any surprise talents?
I’ve been into tennis since an early age, playing for Yorkshire and various tournaments around the country. I just play socially now but still have a major competitive streak.
If you had an autobiography, what would it be called?
A different approach… due to the fact I returned to university as a mature student to pursue a career in PR. Best thing I’ve ever done!17th December 2019
