I joined LB Group at our Stratford office in June, 2016 after making the move down South from my hometown, just outside of Glasgow.
I came to LB Group in the role of trainee accountant, studying towards an ACCA qualification. Prior to working in Stratford, I had 18 months’ experience as an accounts assistant at my former firm.
A few short months after starting, I was nominated for the firm’s ‘Talent Pool’.
I wasn’t familiar with the group beforehand but after some discussions with family and friends at larger companies, I realised this was a pretty big deal.
This group was set up by the directors in 2016 to recognise talented individuals within the organisation.
Once every quarter, the talent pool group meets and is headed by Anna Middleton, who has a wealth of talent pool experience from previous roles in her career.
The meetings range from having internal and external guest speakers, holding workshops and experiencing plenty of opportunities to network with other talent pool members from different LB Group offices. Anna also listens carefully to what we want to get out of talent pool and creates a schedule of activities which try to meet everyone’s talent pool expectations.
These meetings really help to grow and develop a whole host of interpersonal skills that may not typically be part of your core, day-to-day responsibilities.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my involvement in the talent pool so far and I’m excited to see it grow in the future.
