Testimonial: James Moran, Aftercare Manager, BPSE Management

What did you do before starting your current role?

Before I started my current role at Battersea Power Station I was self-employed as a property landlord, based up in Cheshire. I had been in the role for about 10 years.

What made you apply for your role?

I was excited to come to Battersea because I used to see the Power Station in the 1980s when I lived in London before. I always thought it was an iconic building and when I heard that it was being redeveloped I wanted to try and be a part of it, so I applied.

Outline the application process that you went through

The Aftercare Manager job description was very good and I felt that it fitted me perfectly, so I made an application via the BASE website, had a screening interview followed by a full interview, and within three days I was employed!

What 3 words would you use to describe your role?

  • Challenging
  • Difficult
  • Rewarding

Do you see your career developing at BPS?

I see myself developing here because the opportunity is huge. I imagine in a couple of years’ time if I want to move on from what i’m doing, as the development phases are released I will be able to slot myself into different roles.

Would you recommend BASE to other jobseekers?

Although I was self-employed I decided I would job hunt, but found it difficult because I was a little bit older and had been out of the workplace for a while. I found the BASE application process quite simple in comparison, and I would recommend anybody that’s looking for work to apply through the BASE website.
