Tea? Yes please, the first conversation of each morning in the Heterarchy office, I will put my hand up that I have cost them a years wages in sugar & teabags. I’m sure Rosemarie & Tony will have a lot more money when Jenni and I have left.
The tea isn’t the only thing I am going to miss about working at Heterarchy, I have enjoyed every second I have worked here. I have gained so much experience and knowledge in all aspects of the interior design business whilst working at Heterarchy, from working on designs for a variety of clients in the office to going out on site and seeing our designs take shape.
I first applied for the Heterarchy placement after researching the company and really admiring the projects they had been involved in, it was exactly what I wanted to do so I was very eager to make a good impression in both my personality and work. After sending my CV in I was pleased to be called back for an interview, which Rosemarie made very relaxing for me. I was surprised but extremely happy that I got the job. When I initially entered the building I was amazed with the design and ideas that had gone into their building – there wasn’t one thing I didn’t like, a perfectly designed & thought out interior and an entrance that makes a statement (which Jenni and I have now put our stamp on tiling the front yard, and although I say so myself we have done a brilliant job for our first time tiling).
From the first day I started work at Heterarchy I have felt very comfortable with my colleagues presenting my work and ideas to them, the office is a great atmosphere which brings out the best of our ideas. Getting a new office kitten (Lola) made it even better – as you can imagine with a kitten, there is never a dull moment, (apart from her annoying the peaceful cat Phoebe). As they say time flies when you’re having fun and that’s exactly what’s happened to this placement, I can’t believe it’s nearly over – I really don’t want to leave! I am so grateful to Rosemarie and Tony for all they have taught me, I have gained so many skills for my future and can’t thank them enough for their patience and support.
