I have a varied role at Taits. I assist one of the firm’s partners with daily tasks, deal with property enquires and carry out property viewings. I also cover reception and deal with general administration when required.
How long have you worked with the firm? I have worked at Taits for 1 year.
What do you enjoy most about your job? As my role at Taits is varied, I love that each day is different. I enjoy getting to see inside all different types of properties, learning new skills and meeting new people.
