This is us. Where your goals matter.

As I've developed as a people leader, I've learned that sometimes the best person for a role isn't the one who is 100% ready. It's about having the right attitude, skills and initiative. Many of my own leaders gave me opportunities that I may not have been ‘ready’ for, but I had the drive and support system I needed to thrive. Thirteen years on, I’ve grown my career across many different teams and I’m always looking to share the opportunities that have been afforded to me."
