Who I am
A seven-year servant of a company I enjoy working for in financial services, conscious that this is the only firm I’ve known since university.
Work-wise I am a QA Coach based in London with a year’s experience in my current role and 3 previous years in QA Analyst / Lead roles, with 3 years of Service Management experience prior to that.
I want to learn in more detail what the industry looks like more broadly so that I can understand whether I’ve currently got a “good thing going on” or if I’m perhaps too comfortable.
I currently have a very good work / life balance and am interested in finding out whether I could maintain that in other roles elsewhere, and (if not) what the financial (and perhaps reputational and experiental) pay-offs would be for accepting a swing further towards work.
Where I’m aiming
I intend to retire before I reach 50 and my default approach to the earnings part of that (as I don’t need mentorship in how to save and invest money!) is to “rise up the ranks” as quickly as possible. From this mentorship engagement, I’d be aiming to know the best next steps to secure my next step up the ladder, although I’m also open to receiving advice about considering a different approach on a different ladder, or perhaps even one without a ladder entirely.
