Congratulations on your new role, what are you most
looking forward to the most?
ABR: Meeting and working with my new colleagues, taking on my own portfolio of clients, a new challenge in my working life by improving my scope of corporate knowledge here in the Isle of Man.
JW: Joining an expanding and successful company and establishing a good relationship with Optimus's valued clients.
Any advice for people looking to work in this area of business?
ABR: My parents always told me "Choose a job you enjoy, and you will never have to work a day in your life". This being said, if you like a different challenge each day and encountering anything from Superyachts, Executive Jets, Real Estate and Investments - this job is for you!
JW: I think the ability to understand your client's business needs is vital.
In such a role, what strengths would you say are needed?
ABR: Time management skills, enthusiasm, team work and a good work/life balance.
JW: Calling on my experience and abilities to prioritise and understand a client's requirements and deadlines.
Any technology you personally couldn't live without?
ABR: My mobile! I use it to plan and organise my life. It helps me maintain emails, arrange hobbies and team activities and plan holiday activities.
JW: Although not technology, Optimus have a great office in Castletown, a walk to Scarlet and back has proved a great way of applying perspective/clearing your head.
