Aidan joined Millennium Point back in May as assistant accountant. He shares with us what he's been up to since he started and reveals a little more about life outside the office...

How was your first week at Millennium Point?

Amazing! Going go-karting, followed by a meal at Jamie’s Italian as part of a team activity afternoon wasn’t a bad first day! Then, for the rest of the week, I had inductions into each department to learn about how each team works together. This helped a lot getting to know my new colleagues better.

What’s your favourite thing about your job so far?

The atmosphere of the office and the people I work with, as the team is relatively small I have found it a really nice place to work. The environment has a lot of energy which makes coming to work a really fun.

Any surprises?

Tell us about what you got up to prior to working starting your role at Millennium Point?

I was working as assistant management accountant for Pipe Supports Ltd, which is a subsidiary of Hill & Smith Holdings PLC.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I play football on a weekend, tennis during the summer and the occasional game of golf.

If you had to choose one country to visit in 2016, where would you go and why?

The USA - my strongest influence for this is because of sport. I played a lot of basketball through my high school years and always wanted to go and watch a live game. I have also recently started to follow American Football and would like to see the Seattle Seahawks play live. TV has been another big influence with my favourite TV shows being Grey’s Anatomy, Law & Order SVU & Suits (although this is actually filmed in Canada - another place I want to visit).

Favourite place to grab a bite to eat in Birmingham?

Turtle Bay.

What’s your favourite book/film and why?

Coach Carter because it’s based on a true story and it has a great ending.
