After moving to this country from the US, I applied for quite a few roles but, frustratingly, I always got the feeling that my lack of UK experience was an impediment. That was until I applied to ForrestBrown.
Immediately, I felt that instead of being a hindrance, the company valued my background and what made me stand out. I didn’t have a background in any tax, let alone UK taxation, but ForrestBrown was willing to invest in me and helped me learn.
My role is as an operations associate. Simply put, we give the business and our leadership teams the information they need to make good decisions. We’re responsible for any internal monitoring and reporting.
I love the freedom I have at ForrestBrown. There’s so much to learn and it’s not just the same thing day-in, day-out. You can take on a project you think best serves the company. If there’s anything we can do to enhance the business and its work, we’re free to pursue it and drive it forward.
We do, of course, have set structures – but we have the freedom to use our own initiative, too. That’s applicable not only in our work but also our wellbeing. The company is open ears for any suggestions and there’s an interest in us personally, not just our work or output.
