What's the best thing about working at Carter Burnett?
Everyone is very approachable and friendly. We’re also growing fast and it feels like a really exciting time to be part of building something special. Beverley and Newcastle are also brilliant places to work and enjoy.
How do you spend your spare time?
I currently live with my friends, who are all professionals and postgraduates, in shared accommodation so we do a lot of things together. I love playing and watching football and I’m also a keen runner and skier.
I’ve also completed all 214 Wainwright peaks in the Lake District with my family and I enjoy going back to do those walks when I get chance.
