Shannon Corrigan

Senior Corporate Administrator | Ogier Global 

What does a typical working day involve?

 Every day is different, as we have a variety of different clients and client needs. However, a typical day usually starts with responding to client and intermediary emails, creating a ‘to-do’ list for the day and reviewing my calendar to prepare for any meetings or calls I have scheduled. My working days at Ogier Global are also really flexible, as we have a hybrid way – it is entirely up to each individual whether they wish to work remotely or come into the office each day, which is great. 

How did you get your job?

I was recommended the job by mutual connections who had recently joined the firm. They described Ogier’s culture, ethos and vision and I immediately knew it was the perfect fit. I was fortunate enough to join in January 2023 and form part of a brand new, expanding Corporate team. 

What motivates you in this role?

Building good relationships with my clients and intermediaries and working hard to meet urgent client needs or transaction deadlines is a very rewarding feeling, especially when receiving their positive feedback.

I also believe having a strong working team environment is also really motivating – we all work really well together to help each other meet targets. We also have a great social committee, which is great for meeting new people from different teams

Are there any future skills you will need to learn for the role? 

Ogier has a strong focus on personal development for its people. Everyone is regularly provided with targeted training, allowing each of us to expand our knowledge and thrive in our roles. We have a lot of in-house resources too, which is fantastic. As I progress in the business, I look forward to developing my leadership skills, delegating work and being a mentor for junior members of the team

What are the three most important skills required for your role?

 Organisation – it is a very fast-paced environment, there are many deadline dates or client demands to meet. Being organised is crucial.  

Initiative and enterprise – this is really important at Ogier. Our people are encouraged and rewarded to creatively make improvements to the way things are done, whether this is creating new processes, generating solutions, or creating new opportunities.

Communication – having strong communication skills with colleagues as well as with clients and intermediaries helps with the better understanding of their needs, builds trust, and creates good working relationships.

What advice would you give to someone interested in a career in your profession?

My advice would be to be open and give it a go. It’s a very fast paced, exciting environment, with huge opportunities for growth. Ogier Global provides so much support and training programmes to assist with all different levels. Don’t be afraid to try something that is completely different or new. Stepping outside of your comfort zone is a great way of achieving your goals.
