  Sarah Jane Higgins
I took a very indirect route into this role as it was vital that I understood all aspects of the business in order to perform the tasks and responsibilities required of me. I would therefore advise anyone who is looking to get into the area of compliance to study a law related course and then apply for a management position in any area of the business, as companies tend to value experience within the business as opposed to you coming straight out of college. I had no idea when I joined the Sales department that I would be given the opportunity to use my degree so you never know what opportunities may present themselves.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
