I guarantee if you had asked any of my friends or teachers from primary school that I’d end up with a career in compliance, they would have laughed. As a teenager, I didn’t exactly stick to the rules. I liked to consider myself an “alternative thinker” – I’d come up with plenty of different approaches, particularly to figures of authority!
But once I started business school, I fixed my sights on a career in compliance. I realised that working in this field gives you a full picture of the business – from infrastructure to operations to client experience. I enjoy being able to base my decisions on an overall view.
