My first month at Rokker

21st May 2019

How has your first month at Rokker been?

It’s been a really enjoyable experience and a great insight into the exciting world of Business Design consultancy. The best aspect of the job so far has been the incredible amount of diversity that the job entails, which has kept me firmly on my toes and provided the necessary stimulation to keep me excited and engaged with the job. My current position has endowed me with a great combination of office-based work and external client visits.

 

Why did you choose to work for Rokker?

On first impressions, Rokker were friendly and approachable with a relaxed demeanour about them. They carefully considered my own background and assessed my experience for the role. I felt that they were very understanding of my own personal ambitions, and they factored this in when determining my role within their business model. I was impressed by their own set-up and what ambitions they have for the future. I really felt that I could see myself working for them and adding value to the business.

 

What has helped you to settle into the role so quickly?

I have been very welcomed by the business and found everyone to be friendly and amicable. I have also been able to settle well into my position thanks to the patient and diligent training that I have received so far and the communications platforms the company has in pace to deal with multi-office and remote working. This has helped me quickly get up to speed with the operations and processes of the business. Rokker have also been very welcoming in terms of arranging social activities, which have also helped me to settle in quickly.

 

What have you learnt so far?

I have learnt a tremendous amount so far on the job. This has included many of the practical IT skills required to deliver the services that we offer. However, I have also learnt a lot of specialist skills, such as the Business Design terminology that I was previously unfamiliar with. Despite being so new to the organisation, I’ve really appreciated just how much respect my colleagues have shown me and how patient they have been with helping me learn and grow within the business.

 

What has been the most enjoyable part of being at Rokker?

This is a really difficult one to answer as I’ve enjoyed so much about the job. It’s been great getting to know my team and settling into the role. Rokker is a very positive business to work within and there is always an optimistic and exciting vibe amongst the team. The working environment is relaxed and pleasurable whilst still being demanding enough to keep driving sustainable productivity.

 

How do you see the future for yourself and Rokker?

I’m very positive about the future for both myself and Rokker. I recognise that we have a clear long-term vision that the team are collectively working towards. Therefore, I am very excited to be a part of that and helping the business expand. Prior to me starting, the business had been setting a firm foundation for the future. Now we are very much focused on expanding and growing the business over the next 3 years, and I view myself as being an integral part of that ambition.
