Whilst studying Geography, Photography, Media and Film at college and subsequently working in the retail industry for 4 years, I developed many skills such as; working well as part of a team and providing high levels of service to customers. However, after 4 years in the retail industry I decided it was time to look for something new and it was then that I heard about the role of Office Assistant at Harding Financial. I applied straight away and after a couple of interviews and having met the team I was successful in securing this new opportunity! I now work as part of the Harding team and really enjoy developing my knowledge and learning something new every day!
What I love about Harding Financial
Working in an office environment is something completely new to me but everyone here at Harding is so welcoming and friendly making it so easy to settle in. My colleagues are committed to working hard and ensuring everyone feels part of the team. There is always a wide range of work to be done, meaning there is never a dull moment!
As I look towards the future
Having only started at Harding Financial in April 2017, I am one of the newest members of the team. I am already enjoying my role as Office Assistant and I hope to progress within the company and learn more about the finance industry. There is so much opportunity to develop here at Harding which I hope to take full advantage of.
At the weekend you’ll find me
When the weekend comes I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my mum and our dog Banjo, often taking a picnic with us if the weather is nice. I also occasionally take my camera with me to snap some photographs to keep my love of photography alive! Alternatively you’ll often find me in town looking around the shops, spending time with my boyfriend, often eating out or going to the cinema and seeing friends.
Want to buy me lunch?
I would love a tuna and sweetcorn baguette please!
