Employee name
Adam Martin

Your role at Pacem
Planning Analyst Intern

How long have you been with Pacem?
Almost a year!

What does your day-to-day role entail?
My day-to-day generally consists of preparing annual review reports for our clients. I assist the team in preparing recommendation reports for new clients. There is also usually always a few ad hoc tasks during the week to complete.

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Ambitious, Motivated & Sociable.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I’m a Manchester City fan! That is unsurprising to everyone in the office as I started when City won the Champions League.

What do you like most about your job?
I like the variety of my role – no day is the same! I am constantly learning new things and developing my skills.

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Ah the dream! I would share a lot of it with family and friends but first I would probably buy a house beside Galgorm Castle Golf Club where I spend most of my spare time. I would also probably buy a holiday home on the slopes as skiing is my favourite holiday.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I think I would more than likely be doing greenkeeping as it was my summer job and something I really enjoyed!

Favourite Film(s)
I love a good war film! I think 1917 or Hacksaw Ridge would be my favourite.

What interests/hobbies do you have outside of work?
I love sport. My main hobby is golf – I have a handicap of 4, although it was 2 a couple of months ago! My friends and I play 5 a side every Tuesday night which is a great way to catch up with everyone!
