E Jennings_Final for BBH

Department: Change Management

Tenure: BBHer since 2011

Location: Poland

Interests: Travel, Charity Work

Quote: “Every opportunity I’ve had here came with a huge amount of support from both my colleagues and managers.”

What I do: I supervise a team of Change Management Quality Assurance Analysts for Transfer Agency, an important product  for many of our European clients. Our group performs User Acceptance Testing to ensure smooth transactions for our clients.

Always Learning: It is easy to have a dynamic career at BBH.  Managers encourage you to follow your interests and take on new challenges.  I originally joined BBH as part of the Talent Acquisition team in our Dublin office. Not long after, the Firm decided to open a new office in Krakow. I have always had an interest in different cultures and knew the Firm needed recruiting expertise to help grow our new location.  Although I was barely here a year, my managers supported me and helped me relocate. Onboarding new talent enabled me to learn a lot about our business lines and get to know people throughout the  office.   When an opportunity came up two years later in our Change Management department, the hiring managers recognized I had relevant, transferable skills  and asked me to join the team. My learning style has evolved as a result of my mobility. I believe I am more adaptable now, but at the same time I’ve learned how to speak up more to share my ideas.

Leadership Styles: Effective leaders don’t only give you a pat on the shoulder for a job well done, but also share areas you can develop. It’s really important for anyone who wants to grow in their role, or move into another role, to have that support and honesty from a manager. BBH encourages candid, constructive feedback and our leaders and managers take this responsibility seriously.

Involvement Beyond Your Daily Role: BBH is so much more than just a place to work. Personally, I am enthusiastic about helping others advance.  The Firm not only provides fun and interesting ways for me to bring my passion to work, but actively encourages it! My involvement in our BBHcares volunteer program, Innovation Council and Women’s Network enables me to  share my skills to improve our community, culture and service to our clients.  Recently I had the opportunity to help organize our first European Women’s Network event. It was exciting to make an impact while doing what I love for a Firm I care deeply about.
