Meet Harvey

Hawksford’s vibrant and forward-thinking career development is expertly structured to develop the skills you need to progress your career and achieve your ambition.

What school did you go to?

De La Salle College / New Mexico Junior College 

What made you choose Hawksford?

After graduating from New Mexico Junior College I decided I wanted a career in finance. I went through a recruitment agency that gave me a few different options – When going for the interviews, Hawksford was the best fit for me due to the friendliness I received and the interest they took in me. Within the first couple of weeks I knew I made the right decision.  

We believe in having fun at Hawksford with a variety of after-work activities - what has been your favourite?

I started Hawksford during the COVID-19 pandemic, however  that didn't stop the business from making the most of what we could do. The best one for me was the summer party that our team organised at the Royal Yacht. I have also gone kayaking in St Brelade's bay – This was a great way for me to meet new people and members of staff whilst working from home.

What does your typical day consist of?

My day can consist of many different activities such as doing the day to day payments, writing minutes and checklists. There is never a dull day at Hawksford which makes it a great place to learn and progress.   

Hawksford offers opportunities to learn and dedicated support. What professional training will you be doing or have you done whilst at Hawksford?

Hawksford have been very supportive during my time as a trainee. I am in the process of doing my STEP qualification which will allow me to grow further in my chosen career.

What does ‘looking forward’ mean to you and what are your next career steps?

Hawksford has given me an opportunity while helping me achieve life skills like confidence and social skills.  Over the next couple of months I would like to pass my first part of my STEP certificate and then start progressing to the next stage. 

What advice can you give to others looking for employment?

When looking for employment you want to find a place that is professional while still being able to have fun; this will allow you to learn and progress. If you are looking for employment that is exciting, professional and rewarding then Hawksford is a great place to work. 

Taking you and your career beyond tomorrow
