What three words describe Workman?

Professional, helpful and friendly

What has been your standout moment at Workman so far?

My overnight trip to our Paris office for a pre-acquisition instruction. It was different, challenging, and interesting.

Tell us about a time you’ve put your skills to their best use on a Workman project?

For my CA and Project Management roles I have to rely on strong organisational, time management, communication, team player and team leadership skills. For all aspects of my role, these have proven key to delivering instructions in line with client expectations.

What change would you make to a single aspect of the wider property sector and why?

With regards to environmental and equality issues, I think the built environment can both be at the forefront of change and sometime at the tail end of change. Many surveyors are unaware of how they can influence change within their company or industry and some still do not think that change is needed. I think a lot of this is due to lack of transparency, availability of information, accountability, and empathy. I would address these.

What are your spare time pursuits and how do they feed into your role at Workman?

I like visiting new cities and new venues, which helps me keep on top of trends, and enables me to offer good holiday and bar tips to others.

What is your favourite building worldwide, and why?

There are many, but the Eiffel Tower is one of my favourites. (Although technically you could argue it is a structure rather than a building.)

What first led you into the property industry?

I loved walking around London, seeing how the cityscape was changing and experiencing what this brought to an area. The built environment always felt new and exciting to me.

What book or podcast do you recommend?

James Acaster’s Perfect Sounds podcast was a good listen during lockdown and it inspired me to buy some alternative music.
