Caixa Economica Federal. I left Exeter in September 23. After 2 months looking for an adequate position, I was promoted at the Investor Relations department at Caixa Economica Federal. It’s been a great experience, because I can employ concepts which I learned at the university, and also learn new concepts from a practical point of view.

TMG Morrison Mortgage Team. I started a career in real estate in London in the new business team at Foxtons, before moving to work for Innocent Drinks as a sales executive. After taking a short career break to travel (where I met my now wife in Vancouver), I transitioned to running digital marketing for a small business, before getting my mortgage broker license in 2020. I’ve been working in the industry ever since and been part of a team that’s funded over 350 mortgages.
