Spotlight on ... Rebecca Tanke - Personal Assistant to Paul Rhodes

How / why did you get into your line of work in the financial services sector?

Working as a personal assistant is right up my street. I can streamline and tidy everything up and I get to organise and arrange things. My role evolves constantly. With all the challenges Brexit has brought us, alongside many other changes to the industry, it never gets boring. The financial services sector seemed like a challenge and I was willing to take it on.

One of the best pieces of semi-financial advice I ever received was about buying clothes: buy good quality (obviously) and then have the garment altered to fit me specifically; sound financial and sartorial sense. Of course, this means going a little further than one might normally when buying a new outfit, but it’s a little extra that I think is more than justified in the end. Ready-to-wear clothes are great without doubt, but having something that fits you perfectly gives a continued feeling of satisfaction with every wear, it’s so worth it. There are parallels to be made in my professional life as well; it’s such a pleasure to be able to offer clients advice and products that are tailormade to their requirements and fit their circumstances perfectly.

It is no secret that the financial services industry has traditionally been viewed as something of an “old boys’ club” – but this is changing as we see more women climb the career ladder in prominent financial companies across the world.

We spoke to some of the tenacious women in our organization, all of whom are happy to be blazing a trail for women in finance, about their thoughts on working in such a male-oriented industry, and what advice they had for other women starting out.
