Whilst taking a gap year deciding which University degree I’d like to pursue, I decided I wanted to enter the world of work and seized the opportunity to work in Central London. I quick fell in love with the city and soon decided to continue on my career journey rather than attend University.
After working in various sectors in an assortment of administrative support roles, I settled into a tech start-up, Smarter, joining as Team Administrator. I was quickly promoted to the position of PA to the Directors. I was afforded the opportunity to complete tasks and travel to places beyond my years in industry. No day at Smarter was the same and I was grateful to be thriving in such a great company.
Two and a half years later, when the time came for me to move on and push myself out of my comfort zone, I knew I needed to work in another exciting company full of opportunity. When I met Kathleen and the rest of The Lighthouse team, I felt so welcomed and knew immediately it was somewhere that I wanted to work and that would help me to grow to my full potential. Kathleen’s passion and drive really inspired me and I couldn’t wait to join the Lighthouse team.
My time as an Account Coordinator here at the Lighthouse has flown by. Working directly with Kathleen, I’m involved in our full end to end search process, managing client and candidate relationships, and continuing to build victorious partnerships between our most senior clients and most loved brands. I am thoroughly enjoying working alongside such a close-knit team who are always willing to help each other. No problem is too big for The Lighthouse team and I have gained so much knowledge from each of my colleagues. I am excited to see what the next decade holds for the Lighthouse and the industry as a whole.
Other than the weather, I love working and living London, so whenever I have the chance I like to travel, especially to anywhere with hot weather and nice beaches!
