I had the absolute pleasure of spending two weeks temping on the reception desk for a Global Asset Management Firm in the City. The notion of working for such a well renowned firm filled me with such exhilaration and enthusiasm, which only doubled in size when I arrived at their stunning offices.
The contemporary reception area, with an exquisite view of the city is always full of life with employees and guests from across the globe. The internal offices are just bursting with a positive and hardworking atmosphere. It really opened my eyes. Such purpose! Such professionalism!
Their core values are deeply ingrained with equality, drive and commitment. Everyone at this firm is treated with the utmost respect, from front of house, the support and facilities through to the analysts and MDs. Wonderfully refreshing (and possibly not what I had expected).
It was a real eye opener and I came away with a deep sense of appreciation for the firm which is clearly so well led and the culture positive and engaging, somewhere I would definitely like to carve a career with when I graduate from Uni.
