Mine wasn’t a clear-cut ‘traditional’ pathway, so I went to London and temped. As a French speaker, my temping jobs seemed to involve being sent to the City, to work in banks. Usually it was as a temp PA, and very occasionally, I might actually get to put my French to use! Anyway, a year or so of doing this led me to a perm role in a finance company, where my brilliant boss was an Excel fanatic. And that’s really where this story begins.
