SWIISH Networking : What I want to do when I grow up! With Raeann Rooms

Fri, 16 April 2021 12:00 – 14:30 BST

Raeann Rooms would like to share with us her thoughts and perspective on transferable skills.

Raeann Rooms, Business Development Manager for AB Rooms (lock and safe engineers) and Rupert & Darwin (restaurant).

“I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up”…

Raeann has worked with her husband David for 15 years changing the aspect of AB Rooms from a small locksmiths to a nationwide commercial lock and safe engineering company.

Raeann, David and two friends, James and Beth MacLeod-Birch opened Rupert & Darwin on Princes Avenue last September to fill a void in the food and restaurant culture in the Hull area. The restaurant has been shortlisted for two REYTAs.

Raeann has a lively and busy CV but this just adds to the growing list of transferrable skills she has. She has had a very varied employment history and an interesting (and sometimes difficult) home-life.

In fact, at nearly 50 years old, she still doesn’t know what she wants to do when she grows up!

What transferable skills do you have and where did you acquire them? Very rarely is any job or experience a waste of time as you can use the negatives as well as taking the positives to your next job, goal, experience or change of plan. Sometimes, we just have to remind ourselves just how much we have to offer not just others, but ourselves.

Do you know what you want to do when you grow up?
