Before approaching Girling Jones for a role, my decision was quite simple. After researching the market in Exeter the choice was made for me, working on the beautiful quay side, with a company who have exceptional values and a cracking reputation in their field. I wanted to start a new career where I would be self-driven whilst in a great working environment with experienced colleagues to help me over any obstacles. After some hysterical interviews, where I never thought being laughed out the room would be a good thing, I joined the team and haven’t looked back.
Since joining, the business has grown from strength to strength, there have been some fantastic appointments of new members joining and the team morale is fantastic. Team events come through thick and fast whether it’s a festive drink at the Christmas market, getting dressed up for Halloween or Cycling to John O’Groats for Children’s Hospice, there never seems to be a dull moment.
I can honestly say I have never worked somewhere that the people are so motivated by one person, towards a goal which works for the overall team.
