Introduce yourself and your role at Kidwells
I’m Rebecca Hastings and have joined Kidwells to build the commercial and employment team servicing the Worcestershire market from the Worcester office.
Before working at Kidwells, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
So many! During university I was in the promotional industry so I have done lots of unusual jobs including being grid girl at British Super Bikes, handing out free clothes in Ibiza, parades for music events – the list goes on!
What does a typical day look like for you?
Wake up early, spend the next couple of hours washing and feeding small people, whilst also engaging in peace negotiations the UN would be proud of! Drop the children off and head into the office. Check emails and appointments and start the real work of the day while enjoying my first hot coffee. At lunch, I might go for a run before heading back to the office to continue with my work. After hours I head home to tend to mummy duties or the gym. In the evenings I read, do yoga or share a glass of wine with a friend.
How do you find a work/life balance?
I plan, prioritise and am focused in the office, enabling me to work smart and efficiently. Except for emergencies (either child or client related) when I am at work I concentrate on work, and when I am at home I concentrate on home. It’s worked well so far!
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us
I am a qualified yoga teacher
What is on your bucket list?
Trek the Inca trail, have a holiday home in the south of France or Italy, stay at a silent yoga and meditation retreat in India, own a pink diamond….and many more!
