Introducing Brooke Davis, Development Accountant at Investa
How long have you worked with Investa?/ In the property industry?
This is my second role in the property industry, with my first role working for a property investment company in London. I commenced my current role at Investa in April of 2020 and prior to that I was working in a financial accounting role for a listed Investment bank. 2020 was an interesting time to start a new role with such uncertainty in the world, and everyone working remotely. Everyone at Investa has gone above and beyond to make me feel part of the team even with the face to face interaction limitations that the pandemic has created.
What has been your favourite development/project to work on? Why?
My role permits me to work on multiple projects at any one time. This gives me the ability to experience the requirements of our developments at various stages of the projects.
Three words that best describe you?
Motivated, ambitious, determined
What is the most memorable moment of your career?
I started my employment at Investa during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has changed the way we all work, and pushed me to think outside the usual parameters in order to resolve daily issues and help those around me achieve the common goals of Investa.
What is your favourite thing about property? Why?
Property is a constantly changing environment. There are always challenges to work through that teach you to think differently. I also love working alongside my colleagues and learning from their experience.
What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I like to keep active through sport, swimming, running or the gym. I had previously loved playing AFL, however my body is not a fan of high contact sport these days. I equally enjoy spending time with my friends, and when the conditions permit, I love travelling to new and fascinating places around the world.
How has a focus on sustainability, health and well-being benefited your work experience?
Sustainability looks to protect our natural environment, human and ecological health, while driving innovation. At Investa, the focus on employee health and well being has been vital in this current climate and allows for an environment where it is ok to ask for help or to allow yourself the time to focus on your own physical and mental health in order to maximise your potential. Investa provides a sense of purpose and belonging which allows for a happy and healthy working environment.
What drew you toward working with Investa?
It was Investa’s reputation for an inclusive and supportive work environment, and the possibility for career progression that appealed to me and led me to apply for my current position.
