What do you like most about working for an Irish company?
I find the working culture in Ireland is very friendly, polite, open and not too formal but at the same professional. People have a fun way of working and like to share stories and jokes that puts you at ease throughout the day.
What is your personal experience of working at Farrell?
Farrell has been great, understanding and considerate throughout the beginning from my immediate colleagues right up to management. I have been involved in so many different projects and meetings where you get to meet new people and learn new things all the time! Farrell are focused on trying to improve all aspects of the business. This means the company listens to everyone’s ideas, suggestions and concerns.
What do you think about the Furniture Manufacture sector?
It is a very competitive sector. There are many furniture companies out there so to succeed you must be top of your game. For me Farrell is a leader in practical furniture solutions for office and residential and this is where our clients are. We bring strong design capability meaning for the future we are looking at new product ranges and new trends to keep us ahead of the game.
What Irish-traits do you think you have (if any)?
I think growing in Ireland has taught me to say ‘hello, how are you’ to strangers and walkers by! Sometimes in the shops or pubs people would chat about anything to strangers. Our Paul Farrell is a great example. It is a very ‘down to earth’ Irish trait.
What do you miss most (if anything) about your home/country/town/place you are from?
Friends! I really think that the amazing people you meet make up a big part of your life experience. I also miss some of our cultural / traditional things like national celebrations. Like St. Patricks Day, in Estonia we have our own celebrated days which are great fun.
