Neighborhood offers folks with a way of belonging and a community of different folks with whom they’ll join, primarily based on their widespread pursuits and/or traits.

After I was little, I wished to be a veterinarian, as a result of I like animals very a lot. Then, since my father had turn out to be a politician, I believed, “Why not?” , so I acquired my bachelor’s and grasp’s levels in worldwide relations and politics. Then, I labored with an NGO in London for some time, and I favored the fast-paced ambiance, so once I acquired again to Portugal, Revolut appeared like the beginning I wanted to get into that ambiance once more.

We should have the ability to work with our shoppers as a workforce, realizing we’re not above them, we’re all equal.
I work internally with many various folks from totally different departments. I really feel like I am studying one thing new each single day.
All in all, I’m grateful for all the great folks I work together with each day. Typically, on the finish of the day, I really feel grateful for the chance to construct an area the place folks might be themselves, and speak about what they love. Being a Revolut Neighborhood Supervisor is a problem, however I actually prefer it.
I might say the easiest way to assist a group is to share it along with your family and friends. Simply share it and be part of it If you wish to get any data from clients you possibly can simply collaborate with the group. Do not be afraid to introduce your self and do your analysis.
All of us make the group, so the easiest way to point out appreciation for what we do is to be there, present up, and share.
