I have been very lucky to do lots of jobs that I loved. My favourite role was Specialised Lending Team Manager. I had a lot of management development training in this role and I also did a qualification in Performance Management. I really enjoyed working with my team to help them achieve our goals and I was able to help 90% of my team achieve a promotion.
I was always seen as a bossy child, now I would say i had great leadership skills! I enjoyed all hands on subjects at school. Studying three sciences, I left school with 4 Highers and an unconditional place a university to study applied chemistry. Over the summer I worked in a bank and decided the day before I was due to start university that I wasn't going to go. I enjoyed working and the independence that earning my own money brought.
I was lucky to quickly progress through the ranks, achieving my first Team Managers role at 20. Over the past 20 years I have had the opportunity to do what I love most days. I love working with people, I loved helping people develop and I truly love to lead and inspire people.
