Mason Alexander – Staff Spotlight!

Jessica Grant

What did you want to do as a kid growing up?
Very randomly wanted to be an Archaeologist!! There was a dig in my local area, and I was so amazed by it. I was fascinated with the idea of discovering things about history through this means.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
I’ve been quite lucky with the jobs I have had! If I had to choose, I would probably have to say working in BBs at the weekend - it was intense, although I did get to take boxes of leftover muffins home with me!!

What is your role MA?
Principal Consultant within Accounting and Finance

What’s your favourite thing about working at MA?
The people, the trust, and the culture! Everyone is so down-to-earth and approachable. There is no hierarchy and they really put their people first!

Would you recommend MA to friends/colleagues? Why?
Yes absolutely! This is a place where people can be themselves, bring their ideas and thoughts to the table, and really contribute to change and success!

Can you recommend any habits that have helped your professional life?
Keeping momentum, I think a strong start to your day is key! Having a list, having time carved out for tasks, and being organised!

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Travelling - when sometimes things can feel very intense, travelling opens the mind and delivers perspective on life!

What is the best advice you have ever received?
Comparison is the thief of joy

What advice would you give to your younger self?
Stop worrying what everyone thinks of you, it’s the most liberating feeling!

What's your biggest achievement?
Buying our house last year! It was a long road, and it was the most stressful experience but so proud of our resilience and persistence in getting here!

What skills do you think are essential to have to be a recruiter?
You have to be an exceptional people person and genuinely have people’s best interests in mind. Driven with self-motivation. Resilience as it’s not always easy!
