India Pembroke talks about her background and why she joined Attain

#Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’ve always had a passion and enthusiasm for contributing to improving people’s health and wellbeing, whether locally or at a system level. I have been able to pursue this passion over the years whether participating in local community groups and charities, on my travels, through my studies or for employment.

I couldn’t be happier to be working for such a credible consultancy that is working deep within the NHS on pioneering programmes.

How have your first 30 days been at Attain?

My first 30 days have been inspiring and deeply rewarding. I was lucky to be on client site by my second week, leading a PMO team that is supporting 13 work streams. I have felt lucky to be working on such a large and significant project in East London and it has been empowering to be trusted with such responsibility so early on. As well, I know I have the full support of my team.

What attracted you to Attain?

I was immediately attracted to Attain’s size, culture, and the client work. Coming from a Big 4, I was in search of a boutique consultancy that was intimate yet a credible and legitimate player in the health space, and most importantly, held true to its values. This sums up Attain completely.

What’s the best thing about being employed with Attain?

Attain has proven to hold true to its values, in particular; transparency, wellbeing and community. Attain’s people come first, whether it’s their professional development or finding the right work life balance. I have experienced, and have heard from colleagues, numerous stories to prove this.

The other best thing about Attain, is who it has employed. Each person I meet at Attain has such an inspiring and impressive background and story to share. Whether they have worked in far corners of the world, studied at the best universities, or worked for international institutions such as Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations, they have chosen to apply for – and been selected by – Attain. I feel so lucky to work amongst these people.

What do you hope the future brings for you with Attain?

I know that I will be able to develop professionally and personally in the areas that matter most to me. I have full confidence that the people, the leadership, the values and client projects Attain chooses, will let me become the person I wish to become. I am excited by my future with Attain.
