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?
Grainville School, Jersey.
What made you choose Hawksford?
When I was at school, I emailed several financial institutions for work experience over the summer and Hawksford were the first to get back to me. I worked here for half of my summer holiday and Hawksford were happy to have me back again a few months later during my next holiday.
After starting college, I soon decided it wasn’t for me and I wanted to find a permanent job. I reached out to Hawksford due to our existing relationship and they offered me a position as trainee.
We believe in having fun at Hawksford with a variety of after-work activities - what has been your favourite?
It is hard to pick as there have been so many, but I think the best staff activity would have to be the course of free tennis lessons because they were very social and it was something new for me.
What does your typical day consist of?
Dealing with the running of clients’ companies and trusts which includes; paying invoices, sending distributions to clients’ families, reporting on entities, finding solutions for and answering client requests.
Hawksford offers opportunities to learn and dedicated support. What professional training will you be doing or have you done whilst at Hawksford?
Since I have been at Hawksford, I have completed my Certificate of Administration at Highlands College and I’m now working towards a Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners qualification.
What does ‘looking forward’ mean to you and what are your next career steps?
It means to keep learning so I can progress in the finance industry over time and with further experience.
What advice can you give to others looking for employment?
If you are motivated enough you can work towards whatever future you want.
Taking you and your career beyond tomorrow
