What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on at Apartment Group?

From starting with the Apartment Group, you are encouraged and trained to be a force for change and improvement. To pick just one project I have been allowed input in is difficult, but to be heavily involved with training the Florita’s bar team was an absolute pleasure.

To watch a group of fantastic supervisors, bartenders and bar support become phenomenal, not just in their roles but to become stronger as a team, and to grow as I did along side them was a proud moment for me, to learn with them as I pushed them forward to be all that they could be.


What do you love most about your job?

The diversity of the role is one of the elements of my job I love the most. In an average week to open as a cocktail bar, followed by some of the busiest student nights in the city, topped off with incredibly busy weekends with live entertainment, means it’s never boring. There is always something to keep you on your toes and you’re always learning something new.


What makes Apartment Group different?

To be in such an integral and responsible role at such a young age is an amazing opportunity. Experience and age are second to the Apartment group, Passion and ambition are what’s important and they will give you everything else you need. No obstacles have been put in my way and Ive been encouraged to push on further and further into a role I love.
