Day to day life at McCreas
I started working at McCreas in May 2018, as a member of the Paraplanning Support team and now work closely with the paraplanners to support them in assisting our Financial Advisers and clients.
Life before McCreas
I was a full-time student at Glasgow Caledonian University, where I graduated from in July 2018, with an Honours degree in International Business. I am a Hillhead Jordanhill Rugby fan, and was watching a game last year, when I saw a McCrea Financial Services billboard at the side of the pitch that said they specialised in financial planning; I was interested in learning more, so emailed the company and spoke with the Office Manager Lesley-Anne, who told me to stop by for a chat. I was subsequently offered a week work placement, from 18th – 22nd December 2017; I loved it and must have done something right as I’m now back full time and couldn’t be happier.
Favourite thing about working for McCreas
My first impression of McCreas was welcoming and friendly. It was instantly apparent that their interactions with people lie at the heart of the company; I particularly notice and admire how personalised their communications are with clients.
Out of the office
I am a keen dancer, dancing all through high school and University and I have a rather dangerous penchant for shopping!
I am a big Glasgow Warriors fan, so excited that McCreas sponsor the team! I lived in Berlin for six months and I’d love to do a trip around Asia; particularly keen to visit Japan, Korea and China.
