Hi! I’m Georgia and I joined Forward Role in 2017 after graduating with a music degree from the University of Manchester. I predominantly focused on piano performance but I also studied philosophy of arts and French.
After graduating and whilst working in a busy bar in Manchester, I met Forward Role Director Brian. Amongst discussions about whisky and cigars, we chatted about the difficulty for graduates who are looking to get into the world of work following university. He invited me to come in for a chat, so the following day I gave him a call and we arranged an interview.
I was thrilled at the prospect of being part of a growing business and was offered a position within the Support team, whereby I quickly discovered an interest in finance. The skills that I had developed studying music, like focus, attention to detail, and a determination to find answers and meaning, became hugely valuable.
My role and responsibilities have grown considerably since joining the business and thanks to Forward Role, I’m also progressing through my AAT exams.
Outside of work I am currently doing a lot of revision! When I get some spare time I enjoy playing piano, drinking and a good long walk.
