What initially attracted you to Mosaic Island?

I was keen to work for a smaller organisation after spending a significant amount of time on large projects and programmes. Mosaic Island offered a mix of architecture and consulting and the chance to work as part of a small team again.

Was there a particular moment when you knew you’d made the right decision to join?

I think I'd pretty much made my mind up within the first week once I'd met everyone and could see what a great working environment Mosaic Island had. Being taken out to lunch by the MD also helped!!

Can you describe a typical day in the life of your role (if there is one!)

I've worked on a range of different engagements since joining but typically these have involved things like client meetings to help drive out requirements to support our client projects. Maybe some time spent with other colleagues reviewing notes and sketching out some high level thoughts before formulising our approach and end solution.

What do you like most about working for Mosaic Island

For me it's all about the flexibility. I am used to working remotely and I treasure this freedom. I also like the fact that the management structure is very flat and that there is very close interaction with everyone across the company, regardless of their position.

Is there anything you’re particularly proud of or favourite project since you joined Mosaic Island

We are fortunate enough to be well respected in a number of different industries but of particular note for me would be in and around music licensing. I have never previously worked in this industry but I have thoroughly enjoyed our engagements with the organisations that support our music creators and the copyright and licensing bodies

What would you say to anyone considering applying to Mosaic Island

If you're are looking for a good flexible team environment where everyone knows each other and you want to work with experienced architects and consultants and influence business outcomes, then Mosaic Island is the place for you!
