Hayley had some serious ambitions when she joined us. She made the right impression, secured her place with us, and now works on some of our biggest projects in Real Estate. In other words, she’s building an impressive career.
I felt like a fully-fledged member of the team from day one. The work was varied; not necessarily the sort of things you’d expect from a real estate business. In fact, it gave me a whole new perspective on what a career in real estate entails. That’s what I love about my job – every day is different.
Launching Transport for London’s Property Partnership campaign was my first big project, which was an exciting start. TfL is one of the largest landowners in London – it was incredible to be part of something so significant that early in my career.
TfL wanted to maximise the value of their property, through selling and joint development ventures. We had to analyse the market, work out the best strategy, and create the whole campaign. We designed brochures and advertising, and I got to meet all sorts of inspiring people through the bidding process. These were all new experiences but I felt empowered by how much the team trusted me.
The campaign had a huge impact for TfL. They now have a panel of property partners and a large pipeline of sites for development. This is one of the biggest projects Deloitte Real Estate has ever worked on, so I’m exceptionally proud to have been part of it.
