The one thing that really surprised me when I joined Deutsche Bank was the social life. The team is really mixed in terms of age, but we have great social events; trips to Hamburg, barbecues and regular nights out. This is really important to me because I didn't join this industry with a background in finance; I have only ever wanted to work with interesting, dynamic people and now I am. We have a running group every Tuesday and often go for a drink after. I would say once a week there is an e-mail going through our department or branch asking people if they want to join in some sporting activity or go for a drink.
In my spare time, I really like to cook and have friends over. I also like to travel; that’s a never ending hobby with so many places still to visit.
I'm very interested in corporate social responsibility, so for me it’s not about money; the environment and culture are just as important.
