We’re delighted to introduce Blueleaf’s latest recruit, Christie Plumb. Christie is joining us as a project manager and, as she explains below, she’s already got her teeth stuck in, helping us launch a major new website.
Christie is working from our brand-new Soho office so there’s a fair chance she’ll be doing some interior designing and unpacking as well as project managing!
We’re delighted that Christie has joined us and she’s already making a huge difference to the team. We caught up with her to find out a little bit more about her experience and why she’s chosen to join us.
Over to Christie…
Tell us a little bit about yourself
Interestingly I actually studied Marketing and Advertising at University, thinking at the time that this was what I wanted to do. How wrong I was! As soon as I went into the business world I quickly became a project manager as organising people and projects is truly where my heart lies. I’ve loved it ever since and am hooked on the buzz you get from a well-organised and well-planned project reaching completion. As well as constantly wanting to project manage my own life, I like to spend any free-time exploring the British countryside with my cocker spaniel Lexey.
What attracted you to Blueleaf and is it living up to your expectations?
I was actually pretty happy with my previous company and was not looking for a new opportunity but then a recruiter introduced me to Blueleaf and I quickly changed my mind. What I love most about this team is how much everybody supports each other and praises each other for a job well done. It’s really amazing to be part of a team that cares so much about each other and its clients.
I was working in the outskirts of Kent previously so the opportunity to work in such a great office in central Soho was such an exciting prospect. The brand new office is so light, comfy and cool although with a fantastic gelato shop opposite my waistline is definitely going to suffer!
What are you working on?
I’ve just helped release a new responsive website for Currencies Direct which has been really enjoyable and a huge learning curve as it’s meant getting stuck right into pre-launch processes with an amazing result very quickly. I’m tying that up now and I’m already looking forward to part two of the project.
What are you going to bring to the role?
I think the biggest thing I’ll bring to the role is my excitement and general ‘silver linings’ attitude. I thoroughly enjoy working with so many different people from different disciplines and with different levels of experience and I’ve been told that I have a very positive attitude which I hope will not only help keep everybody motivated and focused but make it even more enjoyable.
