I have worked at several leading brands, but joined aspire in 2005 heading up the Balham branch. Internal promotions followed and when I took a career break in 2009 I couldn’t wait to get back. There is a combination of friendly professionalism that is at odds with the rest of the industry. You generally get one or the other. Aspire for me is a family working together to do a job well. I look forward to going to work, which is a rare thing to say in a somewhat hard-nosed industry.
The past four years at Aspire have gone unbelievably quickly. The welcoming atmosphere that greets me on a daily basis has enabled me to enjoy coming to work; having worked in a sales environment before I can honestly say this is unusual! Joining as a Lettings Negotiator I quickly found the pace and buzz is something that suited me perfectly and after delving into the world of Sales I quickly realized that the Lettings department is somewhere I truly belonged! Progressing through the ranks I am currently the Assistant Lettings Manager and look forward to seeing what the future holds for me at Aspire!
Having been a resident of South West London for almost thirty years, I’ve been lucky enough to experience first-hand the enormous change and development our wonderful city has made. From the beginning of my career I have been surrounded by Aspire offices from the subtle glow of the Wandsworth Bridge Road office welcoming people to Fulham, to the prominent corner office on Battersea Bridge Road seen by thousands of people every day on their commutes into Chelsea and the City. When the opportunity to join the company I’d been so familiar with came up, I jumped in with both feet and haven’t looked back. Since joining I’ve had enormous support from the managers and directors alike and have seen fantastic career progression from a Lettings Negotiator in Fulham right through to Managing the branch in Battersea.
