What was your first ever job?

My first ever job was as a stable hand. I was 14 and think I got about 10 pound for the day. Cheap child labour! It was such hard work too!
My first proper job was at Lloyds Bank, I started straight after I finished Uni and its where I became an Accountant.

 

What advice would you give your 18-year-old self?

Buy houses! Or at least one!

 

Who is your favourite person/brand to follow on social media and why?

Hmmm tough one. I don’t think I have a favourite person/brand, more of a genre. I love to follow all things fitness on Instagram. I enjoy getting ideas for healthy recipes and it gives me motivation to be better at eating right and going to the gym.

 

What’s your favourite app or game and why?

I love Timehop as I like looking back on my memories, especially of everyone back home in the UK.

 

What do you love most about your job?

I love how every day is different. I work with some very talented and creative people which makes my job so much more interesting. I am not from a technical background and so am constantly learning and that’s thanks to all of my colleagues who are so awesome at their jobs!
