Spotlight on Alex

Meet Alex…

I am a British citizen but I grew up in South Africa. I went to the University of Cape Town where I graduated with a Master’s in Political Science. But after this I decided to move back to England and begin a career there.

When I arrived in England I was looking for work and I came across Tempo advertised online and thought I would give it a try. I’m so glad I did! I landed myself an exciting role as an Energy Specialist at a company called Bulb – a green energy start up.

I am loving where I am, it really is a great role and a wonderful company to work for. I have learnt a lot and increased my skill set vastly since starting there. I particularly like the company’s mission of supplying green energy to British homes and businesses, and that I get to do my bit to help.

The whole process with Tempo was incredibly quick, easy and supportive. Tempo handled all the admin and I started a new job within a few days of being interviewed.

Flexible working through all of this has been a perfect solution for me. I am learning new skills and gaining experience in an industry I didn’t know much about before. But, whilst I know I have security for the next 3 months, I also know I have the freedom to do other things.

Fun fact: I actually have two other degrees… one in General Studies.
