Upon returning to London, after teaching abroad in Hong Kong for two years, I was eager to pursue a career in property. Having undertaken plenty of research on which company I wanted to work for, I urged my recruiter to get me an interview with Marsh & Parsons due to its history and excellent reputation.
After joining the company as an office coordinator in the Battersea office, it was clear to me that I was with a company I wanted to stick with and progress within. The front office role as an office coordinator was the perfect place to learn about what makes up the company with the various departments and their processes. Following a fantastic six months at Battersea I saw an internal advertisement for a human resources assistant at Head Office. I instantly knew that this was the path I wanted to go down. I eagerly expressed my interest and was delighted to land the job!
Here in Human Resources I work with a motivated, enthusiastic and vibrant team who are constantly striving to help make our company better by investing in our greatest asset, our employees! The experience and knowledge I gained as an office coordinator not only supported my transition into the new role but highlighted the importance of internal progression within the company. The pride our employees have for the company speaks volumes for our values and commitment to becoming the number one London agency!
