Home / Advice to my younger self

If the Redington team could go back in time and give themselves careers advice, what would it be?

Whether they’ve been doing their job for two years or twenty, every professional will tell you they’ve built up good (and not so good!) ways of working. At Redington, we’re firm believers in reflecting on our experiences, through both success and failure, as this is what enables us to learn and set the stage for future accomplishment. To help anyone starting out in their career, we asked some of our esteemed colleagues what piece of advice they’d share with their younger selves if they had the chance.
