Quick Questions with our Employee of the Month
1. Which team and office do you work in?
I work within the GI Actuarial, Analytics and Data Science team, my home base is our London (Bank) office though I work with both London and regional based clients covering both personal and commercial lines of business.
2. How would you describe your job to a 10 year old?
I help your mummy and daddy find jobs and be successful, happy and so that they can look after you! Like going to a new school, but better!
3. What would be your claim to fame / something people may not know about you?
I know almost all the lyrics to most pop songs, but have the memory of a goldfish when it comes to everything else.
4. Name one thing which you’ve been most proud of at work in the last 6 months.
Fully understanding the gravity of exclusivity and only putting yourself forward when you know you can deliver what’s needed! Reputation is everything and I understand where I can, and likewise sometimes where I can’t, add value to both my clients and candidates!
5. If you could change one thing about working at FISER, what would it be?
Having a boss who doesn’t know how to use Bullhorn
6. What advice would you give to a new joiner?
Work hard and do what’s right. Being successful in recruitment doesn’t happen overnight, you need to keep doing the right activity, be honest and transparent with your clients and candidates and add value where you can. Keep doing your best and eventually the penny will drop!
7. What’s your current favourite app?
8. What’s your favourite line from a film?
Just keep swimming – Finding Nemo (dooooo yooooouuuuu speeeeaaaaaaaak whaaaaaaaale? Mine mine mine!)
9. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Greys Anatomy and Disney films
10. If you could switch jobs with someone, who would it be?
Not a specific person, but it would be ideal to be a professional wine taster
11. What was the most challenging part of (Covid-19) lockdown and what did you enjoyed the most? (Any new skills, hobbies that you have etc?)
Being away from family and friends was the main challenge and having to adjust to a new way of life. On the flipside there were many enjoyable things, whilst I didn’t learn Spanish or French, I spent more time going for long walks in nature and learning to appreciate the smaller things we so often take for granted.
