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 as an administrator ever since.
What do you enjoy about working here?
The people. From the moment I started they welcomed me in and made me one of them, I never felt like a newbie, I instantly felt like one of the team. I also like that we all know that we have a job to do, but that we understand that being stressed is not good and so we all help each other out, if not by helping with tasks then with keeping a smile on each other’s faces.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Even though I decided not to take the professional route, I still thoroughly enjoy acting, and I am a member of a local theatre group that put on a pantomime each year. Next year however I will taking on a new challenge, directing. I have never tried this before, so I am looking forward to the experience.
