At Robson Laidler, we want you to get to know us better!
This month, we ask Robson Laidler Wealth’s Jennifer Gilroy 10 Questions…
1. What is your role & how long have you done this for?
Wealth Administrator. I started with RL Wealth in May this year joining at an ideal time just as the team were returning to the office after a stint of home working. There was a real buzz about the place and I was made to feel very welcome.
2. What brought you to the company?
I had been at my previous role for 14 years and knew it was time for a change and step out of my comfort zone. I have always worked in financial services and was keen to stay in this sector. Robson Laidler has a first class reputation and its values resonated with me which made the move seamless.
3. What 3 words describe yourself?
Determined, focused, caring.
4. What do you like most about your job?
Every day is different you never get two days the same. There is such a variety to the role from liaising with clients and providers to preparing reports and inputting data. I work with a great team who are very knowledgeable and encourage me to develop and take on new challenges.
5. What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am a keen runner and have completed the Great North Run several times and currently have 200 miles left to go on a virtual Lands End to John O’Groats running challenge I’ve entered. My weekends are mainly taken chauffeuring my kids to football matches and my daughter has recently qualified as a football referee, so I enjoy watching her in action. Outside of sporting activities I enjoy socialising with friends and taking city breaks.
6. What are you most excited about at RL Wealth?
The team is going from strength to strength and I am looking forward to playing my part in this and seeing how we grow and develop.
7. Who is your biggest inspiration?
My Grandma. She was the person who would do anything for anyone and was always around to offer advice. She made the world’s best rice pudding and – try as I might – mine never comes close!
8. If you won the lottery what would you do?
Make sure that my family and friends are taken care of and then book a holiday to Hawaii as its somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit.
9. Tell us something about yourself nobody knows
I once abseiled from the roof of the Baltic to raise funds for charity…not sure I’d do it again in a hurry!
10. Best piece of advice you have been given?
One I always repeat to my kids and never truer with current times – Be kind always.
