What does a typical day look like in your role?
I tend to start my day by responding to emails and signing off any pending paperwork from the previous day but from that point on, no two days necessarily look the same. I spend much of my time supporting my team to ensure that all aspects of the operations are running smoothly. In between the day-to-day work I get involved in various projects, normally surrounding the development of operational procedures.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I think my greatest satisfaction arises from seeing the company and our team members develop. It is thrilling to be part of a growing and dynamic organisation, more so when you have the opportunity to feel that you’ve contributed to that growth. Aside from building on the operations of the business, I have been lucky enough to work with a great set of individuals and I take pride in the way that we develop as a team and the way we face new challenges together as they arise.
What attracted you to PraxisIFM?
When I joined the Group back in 2012, I was looking for a new challenge and for an opportunity for growth. Little did I realise at the time, how many of my aspirations would not only be met but significantly surpassed. Working for PraxisIFM has been a bit like a rollercoaster ride for me; I find that the Group’s philosophy pushes people towards being innovative and forward-looking which has helped to drive me onward from one challenge to the next and to grow fairly rapidly. It has always been exciting to work for the Group and with our current focus on expansion in key areas and jurisdictions, I find myself still firmly strapped into my seat with my eyes on the next phase of development.
How do you like to spend your spare time?
I have two young children, so sadly very little spare time! I do manage an amateur eight-a- side football team which keeps me busy in between work and home life. In the summer I enjoy doing a spot of gardening and am particularly pleased with growing herbs and crops which I can use in my cooking. I also enjoy reading when I get the chance and am a big fan of historical and detective fiction and combinations of the two genres.Learn more about Andrea
