It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen when I came into the Islington office to interview for the job with “the head honcho”, “the gaffer”, “el présidente” the distinguished David Pinnick. During our dialogue he discovered that I had previous and varied careers in Media, Education and the Restaurant industry and had recently returned from three months of travel through South East Asia. He seemed to like the cut of my jib and I was employed as a Lettings Negotiator and sent to the Camden Office. I started going into the summer period and it was busy like Wall Street! My love of meeting new people and getting to know our applicants and tenants over the phone and in person has held me in good stead. My favourite part of the job is when going on what I call “road trips” with the car, viewing multiple properties. There are quiet days too, however, there’s never a dull moment in the office with the bunch at Hotblacks. Outside of work I love cooking and eating; this has meant that I have to take part in crazy fads like running and boxing to stay trim, however, I can’t give up eating…my life depends on it so I guess these sporting activities have to continue.
