Consultant

"I love the buzz of project work and the people I work with. I'm learning something new everyday"

Why did you join Terra Firma?

I have a varied working background, having worked in healthcare, financial services and start-ups. I always seemed to gravitate to a business improvement and an internal consulting role. I was very keen to work for a consulting firm and let my career really take flight. When I was toying up with possibilities and options, Terra Firma caught my eye. They seemed like a company that would look after its people and have lots of opportunities. I got the sense it would be a great company to work for.

What do you love about your job?

The feeling I had about Terra Firma being a great place to work was spot on. I have felt very supported right from the start, with a number of opportunities on offer. I love the fact that when I’m out on a client engagement, there is always support available literally just a phone call away. So I never feel isolated, I always feel I’m part of a bigger team with a common purpose.

In the time I’ve been here, my skills and experience have sky-rocketed and I love what I do even more every day! I enjoy working with different people on different projects, and the challenge that every new project brings. You learn so much about people, organisations and about yourself. Plus you get to see the difference you are making which is very rewarding.

What are you looking forward to in your career at Terra Firma?

I’m looking forward to deepening my skills and experience particularly in the change management space which I’m very passionate about. I’m also looking forward to working in whatever engagement is next – it’s very refreshing to know that you actually don’t know where you might be placed, but that you’ll be supported along the way regardless. I love the fact that the work is challenging and varied. There is never a dull moment.
