Today we meet Vicki Mulroney; known for her smile, positivity and humour around the office!
So tell us a bit about yourself Vicki..
I am the Training & Recruitment Manager here at Coalters. When I am not at work, I am at home spending time with my little boy, Archie and my partner, Simon.
Judging by your fun attitude at work, we’re guessing you like a good boogie – what would we find you dancing to in a bar?
Something from the 80’s?! (Now I’m showing my age)! Although I love a good power ballad!
So just how did you end up here?
I actually joined the world of Estate Agency 7 years ago. Previously, I spent 8 years working in the fitness industry and fell into the industry after having Coalters recommended to me by a friend. I’ve never looked back!
We must be doing something right then! What stands out to you the most about working here?
The people! We are so lucky to have such an amazing team here. We all share the same passion to be part of something different, something industry leading and bold. We’re all committed to changing the face of estate agency and it’s great to work with such like-minded people. We are extremely ambitious with exciting plans for expansion. I love finding new talent and being part of the development of our team.
In your role, does each day tend to be similar?
A typical day for me varies! I can be delivering training to the team, designing new content to keep our team at the top of their game or working on our recruitment campaigns – sourcing the best talent to bring to our company and progressing these candidates through the stages of our interview process. It’s intensive, but that is because we are committed to finding the best talent out there and bringing these candidates to Coalters.
Do you have any really memorable moments throughout your time here?
I won the Employee of the Year Award in 2014! That was certainly a memorable moment and my prize was a weekend for two in Prague!
That sounds great – I wonder where this year’s winner Jade will head! Aside from Employee of the Year, what has been the biggest success story since you have been here?
Winning the Sunday Times Best Single Office in the UK Award was a very proud moment for not just me but the whole team. We had all worked incredibly hard and it was great to get that recognition.
And lastly, if you were stuck on a desert island with one person from Coalters who would it be and why?
It would have to be Kevin! I have known Kevin for many years and he never fails to make me laugh. We could be absolutely anywhere, (including stuck on a desert Island) and we would still be guaranteed to have a very good giggle.
Funnily enough, that’s the same thing Kevin said!
