In Lisa’s own words…
What did you do before joining Archway?
I studied Acting and Drama at college and university, followed by working in retail for a couple of years. I wanted to expand my horizons so took a job working for free at a Financial Advisers for a couple of weeks to gain some experience. They took me on full time and I have worked in the financial industry ever since, and that as they say, is that!
What do you enjoy about working here?
The people. It is a cliché, but that does not make it any less true. Archway is a family. And it makes working here such a pleasure. Even if they do try to stop me regaling them with the latest adventures in D&D!
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Even though I decided not to take the professional route, I still thoroughly enjoy singing and acting. I am a member of a local theatre group that put on a pantomime each year to raise money for charity.
