Emily Say, 27
Former change analyst
"I remember my mum asking me at age 15 what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said: “A firefighter”. Her reply was along the lines of “You don’t want to do that. Go to university and get a job in the City, you’ll love it.” So that’s exactly what I did and she was right (as she always is) because I enjoyed it. However, I knew my heart belonged somewhere else, somewhere where I come home from a day at work having made a difference. From fighting fires to fitting smoke alarms during a safe and well visit, I’m so excited to work for a renowned organisation where I get to help the people of Kent. Dream come true."
