Describe the office environment where you work

The office environment at Praxis Fund Services is very friendly and open. Everyone in the office is very approachable and willing to help. I sit alongside other members of the corporate secretarial team which includes a diverse mix of ages and experience. This makes everyday different and provides a great environment to learn and develop new skills and knowledge.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I picked this role as I wanted a job that would be varied and involve working with a wide range of people. Working as a company secretary gives you a real chance to engage with lots of different people including directors investment advisors lawyers brokers colleagues peers and trainees within similar roles; a wide range of people across the finance industry. I find this makes every day different and helps to quickly build quick relationships. Aside from working in a fast-paced and diverse environment the things I enjoy most about the role are the learning opportunities provided and working to provide positive results for clients.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit through a range of fitness classes and running. I also really enjoy cooking and I'm part of a regular quiz team with a group of friends.
