Who better to express what it’s like to join us than a few members of our team.
What motivated you to join Gate One?
The chance to get creative. We all have the space to design and manage our own internal projects, which in turn help drive the direction of the firm.
What is the most interesting project you have worked on?
Working at a global investment bank was a novel experience for me. I was running a global project so catching up with clients based New York, Hong Kong and Europe was very interesting.
What types of clients and projects have you worked on whilst at Gate One?
Everything from financial services to not-for-profits. That’s not to forget the internal projects I’ve been part of, which have included Incubator ideas, internal communications and Gate One’s coaching model.
Which part of working at Gate One do you enjoy the most?
It’s got to be the summer Gate-aways! Spending the week reconnecting with colleagues who’ve been working on projects across the UK, plus creating the business plan and direction for the next year in beautiful European settings always feels pretty epic.
How has Gate One supported your career progression?
As well as committing to our clients and delivering what’s best for them, we genuinely care about our team’s professional development needs too. I have felt this on several occasions when being considered for various projects and roles – my personal objectives have always been an important part of the conversation.
What is the most rewarding thing about your client work?
Building genuine relationships with clients which go way beyond the project. Setting individuals and teams up to deliver results and sustainable change way beyond our time with them. Then hearing how things are going afterwards.
What have you been involved in outside of your client work?
So much! It was one of the reasons I joined. The highlights have been leading the people and talent team, developing our change proposition and running Gate-aways.
What has most surprised you about being in the Gate One team?
Everyone has a voice. Whether you have a view on our business plan for next year or what makes the most compelling employee value proposition, if you speak up you’re heard!
