Me in a minute

I am happiest thinking about what people want from their careers and seeing if I can help them with their plans.

I enjoy writing. I get a lot of satisfaction from working out how we can tell clients something often quite technical in as simple a way as possible. I like thinking about what we are really trying to say, and what a client really needs to know, and making sure we don’t say anything extra to this.

In the last few years though I have found that it is the part of my role that allows me to support colleagues with their careers, or with their day to day challenges, that means I really enjoy this job. It’s funny how much can hold people back, when it doesn’t need to. So I like trying to work out how people can ditch the barriers that stop them getting what they want.
