Meet The Authors
Hey, I’m Anna! I was born in Chester, but moved to Bath to study Mathematical Sciences (basically just a Maths degree but I was able to take Computer Science, Physics and Accounting modules as well) at the University of Bath with a placement year for my third year. And now I’m back in the pretty town of Chester, working as a Finance Graduate at Redrow!
The house building industry has always interested me, and I’d heard really good things about Redrow from employees and contractors that worked for them. I managed to get myself an interview through a recruitment agency as the finance graduate programme is bespoke, so works slightly differently to the rotational programme in that it is fully set up by the Finance team.
What really made me want to work for Redrow was the warm and welcoming culture it has – wherever you go in the business, there’s a friendly face to greet you. In addition to that, it feels like the company really wants to develop you as a person and there is a plethora of training days set up for the programme.
A bit about myself outside of Redrow… I love spending time outdoors, travelling, cooking and challenging myself whether it’s doing my first half marathon or white water rafting. I also volunteer for a charity called the Cinnamon Trust, where I walk dogs for those less able who still want the great companionship of a loving dog. My life motto is that I’ll try everything once!
Enjoy our blog, and hope to see you soon!
