Tyrone Beamsley, administrator in Ogier Global
Before joining Ogier's corporate administration services, I worked primarily within the sales and customer service industries, including at Airtel Vodafone where I worked as a customer service assistant for close to ten years. Prior to this I was studying varying subjects across different industries such as forestry, performing arts, business and sports leadership, trying to get a grasp on a role that would give me focus and allow for progression.
My team and the team environment at Ogier more generally are what I enjoy most about my job. The people I work with are welcoming and supportive and this has helped me with the transition into a new role and career, as I had no experience in the finance industry before joining Ogier.
The collaborative mindset adopted within the organisation and inclusion of views from different jurisdictions, departments and varying roles within the group are what make Ogier stand out to me.
Brooke Lewis, associate in investment funds
Ogier has always been a friendly, welcoming and forward-thinking firm. I joined in 2014 as a bursary student and they did such a great job of showcasing the firm to me that I didn’t want to work anywhere else. I stayed with Ogier to complete my English training contract and have qualified into the firm. Now I've qualified as an English solicitor, I hope to sit my Jersey law exams.
Throughout my time at Ogier, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with a large number of teams in the firm in both legal and business services departments. Everyone I have met has been friendly and great to work with. Paired with an innovative environment, Ogier has always stood out to me as an excellent place to work.
I would say one of my favourite things about life at Ogier is that I have rarely found two days that are the same. There is so much variety and I am able to experience so many different aspects of law.
One of my most notable experiences at Ogier so far has been when I was able to be a corporate mentor for the Channel Islands Student Business Challenge – an initiative the firm sponsored as part of its CSR programme. It was a great experience and so rewarding to work with the students and I received a lovely thank-you email from the school I was working with once the challenge had finished.
Nic Le Breuilly, associate in banking and finance
As a career changer, my professional background is a bit different from most. I graduated in 2001 with a degree in music and I ended up working as a musician in the West End. After 15 years, a wife, a mortgage and two children, I decided I needed a new challenge so I enrolled to study law, qualifying as a solicitor in October 2019.
I love the fact that my job is never static. I am constantly learning and developing. I get to work with some incredibly driven and intelligent people which, in turn, motivates me to challenge myself even further.
Many firms talk about their culture but, at Ogier, I experience my colleagues demonstrating and embracing the culture of the firm on a daily basis. As a firm, we are dynamic and innovative, and both of these attributes have been explicitly demonstrated by the way the firm has risen to the challenge of the pandemic. While our clients are rightly at the centre of everything we do, I love the fact that Ogier puts its own people first. The support for wellbeing, diversity and inclusivity, personal and professional growth and the opportunities to make a positive impact on our local communities really makes me proud to say that I work for Ogier.
