What three words describe Workman?
Stimulating, vibrant, supportive.
What has been your standout moment at Workman so far?
Alongside my role, I am currently studying for my degree in Real Estate Management and have been elected as the student representative for the University College of Estates Management (UCEM), which is a huge honour. It means I am tasked with providing a communication link between my peers and the university, giving feedback and suggestions on how to improve the UCEM student experience.
Tell us about a time you’ve put your skills to their best use on a Workman project?
I am lucky to have a very mixed portfolio, so the opportunities are many and varied. My skillset is versatile, and I enjoy being exposed to lots of different challenges, but with the support and mentorship of very experienced senior team members behind me.
What are your spare time pursuits and how do they feed into your role at Workman?
My spare time is currently dedicated to completing my degree in Real Estate Management, so usually I am found studying, but it’s all worth it because great things will come once it’s completed. Otherwise, the biggest spare time pursuit must be Reggie, my six-month-old puppy. Keeping him entertained is a hobby all of its own. He’s always ready to take on the world, and I’m jealous of the amount of energy he has! Managing my role at Workman, studying and looking after a pup has definitely taught me a lot about time management, and patience.
What is your favourite building worldwide, and why?
The Space Needle in Seattle is a breath-taking structure and has the most amazing views – I’d recommend a visit.
What first led you into the property industry?
During a change in career, I decided to experience different roles by temping, and was lucky enough to come across a role in property which excited me and provided something that was missing in other roles. I gradually worked my way through various roles, before deciding to commit to a degree, with the aim to become a chartered surveyor.
What three dinner party guests would you choose and why?
I would invite three of my closest friends for dinner and a very long catch-up. We were so starved of time together during all the lockdowns that we have a lot of ground to make up!
