Meet Our People: Amanda
Posted on Wed, 2018-07-11 12:12 by Amanda Brown - Senior Transition Manager
What does a typical day look like for you?
I’m based in Edinburgh but I am agile - which means I can work from any of our SPACE offices, or client buildings. It’s important for me to be part of our Clients’ project teams; I like to base myself on their sites to make it easier to meet with project teams and be on hand to manage their relocation planning. I can be doing anything from a filing audit, presenting a session on workplace etiquette, working with Procurement departments in running tenders, to overseeing a client’s physical move; lots of variety!
What was you first job?
Stacking shelves in my local Forfar Co-op after school.
What’s your favourite place in the world and why?
Wester Ross, Scotland – it’s a place where you can totally lose yourself in the scenery, remoteness and peace & quiet. Plus, the road cycling is great!
Who is your hero and why?
I am inspired by individuals who have the ability to physically and mentally push themselves to the extremes of endurance; early polar explorers, and mountaineers such as Joe Simpson stand out for me.
If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive!) who would it be and why?
Do you really need to ask?! Dave Gahan; for some general chat over a pint and so I could tell him the massive influence his music has had on me for the last 30 years.
If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Decribe yourself in 3-words
An energetic, banter-excelling, coffee-snob! (hyphenated words count as one, yeh?)
