Why did you join Denholm?
I was actively looking for a new role. I met with Fiona (Head of Accountancy & Finance) in passing and she mentioned how well she had settled in and was enjoying life at Denholm. Jackie (Denholm’s Employee Experience Lead) had reached out at the same time as a few other agencies, and we arranged a more detailed catch-up. The call went well, and things really gathered momentum, which led to some further conversations with Douglas (Director), Fiona and Nicki (Founder & CEO).
At this point, I think I was the one who seemed to move the process along and when offered the opportunity, I was in no doubt about joining the team.
Who would be your top three dinner party guests?
- I’m a bit of a football nut, so would have to have Lionel Messi, he is the GOAT
- Liam Gallagher – I love Oasis, also would really love to know what goes on in his head, although I think the dinner could get a bit messy!
- Winston Churchill – inspirational and the ultimate leader, also would have the best stories to tell
What was your first job?
Aged 17, Office Junior with a mid-tier Legal firm based in Glasgow. First experience with dealing with the public and professional people, was initially quite scary, but really enjoyed the experience and the confidence that it gave me.
What was the worst job you have ever had?
A sales role in a completely unregulated environment. It was horrible. Managers encouraging mis-selling, no training, no support, only caring about targets being met. Even when I resigned, they laughed it off and asked me to get back on the phones. I never went back after lunch.
Although it wasn’t a good experience, I certainly learnt a lot about how you should and how I wanted to treat people.
